56 COURSE HOURS
 

The USCG "Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessels" License allows the holder to Captain uninspected vessels. This license is commonly referred to as the "6-pak" license because The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Title 46, restricts uninspected passenger vessels to six paying passengers. This license is good on vessels up to 100 gross tons and is the common type of license for a Guide who never intends to carry more than 6 paying passengers.
