I've got tons of boat-time over the last 30 years but never got licensed because it was mostly on personal boats, but I'm thinking a good winter project would be to take any courses and whatnot that I would need to get licensed. Problem is, I don't really know where to start and I need to do it for as cheap as possible. I figured this would be a good place to ask folks since many of you are Captain's already.
I figure I have probably 700 days or more of total boat experience, but documenting things from 20 years ago is going to be difficult. How tough is the CG on documenting hours?
