I believe the new regs also extend to recreational vessels fishing commercially... Whether it be for tuna, bass, scup, tog etc.

This is a good and fairly easy link that lets you know what you need if you have any type of commercial permit:

Yes if the intent is to sell fish. then that makes you a commercial vessel.

And forget the "I'm rec fishing(until I get a giant on board) " the coast guard is not buying it. It's all about intentions and theyre pretty good at figuring out just what It is you're doing out there.

I also hear now that all charter boats will have to be inspected. I guess they are doing away with the un-inspected vessel? (OUPV)

Neat ap! Just wanted to see what it would do for my boat even though I have no nor never had any intentions of comm fishing.

All these rules are just dandy. At some point I am going to stop buying licenses and following all these F%$#*d up rules.... Good thing we have the government looking out for us... I don't know how we would manage without them

It may only be a matter of time before ALL boats are required to carry the same gear while outside certain mile areas.

Don't forget we ALL will need the FCC radio liscense next year as it will be enforced (extra $160 and good for 10 years)

Or then again, maybe not if you are just 100% rec. I read this over and I'm still confused. If you have a com liscense of any kind you need the FCC Ship Station liscense correct?

As it states as one of the terms in the link below,
"Uninspected commercial fishing industry vessels required to carry a VHF radio"

Isn't it mandatory that all comms be inspected now anyway?.........

FCC: Wireless Services: Ship Radio Stations: Licensing

This is what I gathered.






Here's all the info:
FishSafe.info | Commercial Fishing Industry Vessel Safety
FishSafe.info | Commercial Fishing Industry Vessel Safety
FishSafe.info | Commercial Fishing Industry Vessel Safety


BEGINNING OCTOBER 16, 2012, ALL COMMERCIAL FISHING VESSELS THAT OPERATE BEYOND 3 NAUTICAL MILES FROM THE BASELINE (SHORE) WILL NEED TO SUCCESSFULLY COMPLETE A DOCKSIDE SAFETY EXAM.

FishSafe.info | Commercial Fishing Industry Vessel Safety
FishSafe.info | Commercial Fishing Industry Vessel Safety
FishSafe.info | Commercial Fishing Industry Vessel Safety

Basically the same regs for "commercial" fishing vessels that have always been in place, are all still in effect.
The difference now is:
1. You need an inspection, to prove your in compliance.
And
2.The boundary line has been moved to include anything outside 3 miles..


So that means, if your boat is DOCUMENTED you will need a ships station license from the FCC. (as required in the regs)
State registered boats do not need this.

Also if your boat is documented make sure it is documented for "commercial" use and not JUST "recreational" use
You want it documented as BOTH. otherwise If your out past 3 miles with your family on a documented commercial only boat, you better have survival suits for your wife and kids..

You don't need day shapes or alcohol testing kits or compass deviation charts. UNLESS you fall into that category of boats per the regs. Are you over 36 feet? are you Dragging? Scolloping? etc....

You also need to have safety drills. If you have a 100T master license you can do them yourself. Otherwise a friend who has their 100T can do them for you..

AND*********

When you apply for you FCC license make sure you apply as a commercial vessel outside of 3 miles. NOT AS A CHARTER BOAT
Or the FCC will deny you
