Can I sign my own sea service documentation for my USCG license?
Yes! You can sign for your own service on vessels you own. You need to sign both sections of the CG-719S small vessel sea service form. Don't forget to complete the bottom part of section III when you signed twice.
What additional documentation is needed to sign my own sea service documentation for my USCG license?
If you are documenting sea time on a vessel you own and signing your own sea service documentation for my USCG license you will always need to provide proof of ownership for every vessel you are submitting to the USCG.
The vessel ownership documentation must list your name and match the vessel identification information you used on your CG-719S. Acceptable proof of ownership may include, although not limited to:
Proof of insurance
Bill of sale
What do I do if I don't own the vessel?
The ship’s master, owner, vessel manager or office staff for the company that owns the vessel can sign your CG-719S small vessel sea service form.
You will sign the top part of section III on the CG-719S small vessel sea service form. The person attesting to your service will need to complete the bottom part of section III and sign.
