>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?
>>
>>1057492
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.

Nah. Until they can operate in heavy seas, WIG are dead in the water.

They also can't take transport cars.

>>1058450

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
>>
>>1058630

The only thing is at that size you can have a conventional ferry carrying significantly more
>>
>>1058638
Speed.

Ferrys take forever in alaska.

A WiG ferry would cut travel time down.
>>
>>1058662

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.
>>
>>1058748
WiG for people and their cars.

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