USCG inspected vessel/ Charter

Postby Milwaukee » Sat Apr 04, 2020 10:57 am

Hello there, has anyone here Gone through the process of getting a Marinette certified as a USGG inspected vessel for passenger hire? Or know of any used commercially?

And or has anyone acquired blue prints or made hull line drawings for a 31 Express?

I’ve got a gutted 1962 Express Cruiser I want to refit and put to work. :mrgreen:

Thank you much :D

Ran a charter boat service for 10 years.I had to get a Coast Guard inspection every year. First boat was a 32' then a 37. both were F/B Sedans and I ran a six pack license. I did inquire about upping the passenger capacity to 12 people, but the regulations required would not make it cost effective for me. Seeing you are rebuilding from the ground up :shock: now would be the time to up grade the licence. :idea: I remember that a lot of it had to do with rail heights. I did get all the drawings from John Althouse owner of Marinette. He was a very nice person easy to talk with.These were needed for the up grade in capacity for the Coast Guard.
I meet with John at my boat and got a price for a radar arch for the fly bridge. This was a few years before he had a stroke. :(
God luck with your project. :mrgreen:

Would you point me in the right direction to get drawings of a 1963 Marinette 31 Express? This is all I have found online.
