Towmasters: the Master of Towing Vessels Assoc. Forum

This forum is presented by The Master of Towing Vessels Association. Here's a little bit about them in their own words: "The Master of Towing Vessels Association (MTVA) represents the interests of U.S. Coast Guard-licensed masters, mates and pilots of towing vessels (Oceans, Near Coastal, Great Lakes/Inland & Western Rivers), with a focus on safety issues, licensing and certification, training, and professional qualifications standards. Obtaining these licenses has become increasingly difficult in recent years and the pool of new recruits into the industry has become almost non-existent. Many of the existing Baby Boomer-generation captains and mates have been and will be retiring in a large wave over the next decade or so. In their wake will disappear a valuable and irreplaceable source of towing knowledge that cannot be learned in the classroom or properly taught and accounted for using the existing Towing Officers Assessment Record (TOAR) system. Now more than ever, our voice needs to be heard by the regulators, legislators, and the industry at large. If you hold a license as Master, Mate or Pilot of Towing Vessels, and think that working mariners have been ignored for far too long, please consider joining us."
