New Crew Standards

The new crew standards lay down the annual seatime requirements for coxswains and crews, minimum qualified crew on board for each type of vessel, and individuals qualifications.
The requirements for seatime are a minimum of 25 hours in the previous calender year for coxswains and 20 hours for crew
