>previously told that I need to recertify on Blinker Light before I can be issued my license
>get an email from the NMC telling me that I had 30 days to complete one last certification or my license application would be voided
>5 days ago get an email saying my license had been approved
>and then one saying it had been issued and was in the mail
>mfw I still have not gone down to redo blinker light

Okay now I'm just confused. Do I still have to do the stupid morse code thing or not?
Do it, and inform them of the error. You risk them catching their error and revoking your license.

I can get into this. Seems like 90% of us are on small boats.

As it turns out, it was all bureaucracy shit. I did the morse code stuff, and picked up my license that day. It still feels so fucking weird to actually see

in my hands. I didn't think I'd actually make it this far.
This leads me to another question: MM&P or MEBA mates?

Wing in Groundeffect is the future of ferry transportation.
Nice blog faggot.
Nah. Until they can operate in heavy seas, WIG are dead in the water.

18,000 horsepower worth of boats
They also can't take transport cars.

WIG's only make sense when you get huge, like bigger than the Caspian Sea Monster huge. Ride height is dictated by wing size/geometry so you need to go big to avoid large waves in the ocean. Once they get that big though, everything is golden, as they can carry decent freight

The only thing is at that size you can have a conventional ferry carrying significantly more

Ferrys take forever in alaska.

A WiG ferry would cut travel time down.

Ferry's take forever, everywhere.

Few people are actually going to ship heavy freight at premiums you would find for a WiG.

Even a big WiG would only useful for passengers and small mail packages.
WiG for people and their cars.

If it doesn't cost more than air travel + rental car costs. Then I would pay for it.
