Seamans Discharge book & Recording working hours...

Hi all,

I was wondering how I should go about recording my hours at sea etc so that I can do my Yachtmaster at some stage... Where can I get a booklet for recording this? Apparently you can download one from the MCA website but i couldnt find anything...

Also does anybody know the exact way of getting a Seamans Discharge book, specifically a South African who ha done it recently and knows the routine and requirements etc...

Thanks for your help

Matt

Hi,

If you have a job on a boat apply to the flag administration for a discharge book.

You could also join the PYA and get one of their books which is accepted by the MCA.

Hi,

I am assuming Hamilton Bermuda as opposed to Hamilton New Zealand?

Go here http://www.gov.bm/portal/server.pt?o...=2&cached=true

Approx half way down the page in a section called Seamans Forms is a MS Word doc that you can download that explains it all.

Regarding log books...How valid is a PYA log book? I mean, do the MCA frown upon anyone using a PYA log book, or do they prefer a proper discharge book from a county, such as a british, caymen, etc etc..?
The reason I ask, is that my current Captain is advising me to apply for a British Seamans Discharge Book, as he says that he MCA prefer that. I have been using the PYA log book for over two years now, so am reluctant to swap over...any advice??

cheers

Hi,

If you read this from the start you would have seen in Post 2 where I wrote that the MCA accept PYA Log Books. If they didn't then there would not be any point in having them. Info can be found on the PYA Website.

I know that the MCA accept the PYA log book as I have one myself and have used it with the MCA, however, an institute or person can accept something, but still frown upon it.

Thanks
