I haven't seen discussion on this topic in quite some time, so I'm hoping for some current information on obtaining a captain's license.
My husband shipped a cataraft (an inflatable kayak-type "raft") down several months ago. He is now interested in occasionally using a motor on the cataraft (rowing that thing in a stiff wind is a little difficult!), and wants to know what he would need to do to get a captain's license and whether it could all be done in San Pedro (obviously, it would be impossible to row it to Belize City). We'll be back down in January and he would like to take care of the license and registration at that time.
I couldn't find an online copy of the study guide for the test, so could he get it from the Port Authority office in San Pedro, read it, and take the test in a short period of time? Are there any factors that might make the boating part of the test difficult on what is essentially a slow raft?
Thanks for any helpful information!
