    The real problem I see is the obtuse and antiquated regulations by USCG for Captain certifications that Anchor or any individual has to deal with.
    Make the requirements reasonable and there is less need to play legal games.

    When was the last time Captain regs were seriously addressed? "Common" boats are larger and safer than craft of another generation.
    A person can carry up to 15 people in a van before additional Driver's license endorsements are required. Class E chauffeur's license has minimal additional requirements.

    6 pack is fairly limited and the next endorsement is good to 100 tons!

    The actual test questions of even the 6 Pack are so obscure they are stupid. Sample "boats under 40' must have 50' of line connected to their ring buoy while boats over need 75'" No Captain needs to know this on a daily basis! When a craft is outfitted or gear changed, it can easily be referenced.

    Sadly, its probably easier to duke it out with lawyers on skirting existing regs than getting bureaucrats to make intelligent changes.
    Another stupid USCG thing, the Captain training services are allowed to write their own tests (so long as they fall within guidelines) so they specifically focus on those questions they know are on THEIR test. A general person can take the USCG test that again employs many trivia questions.

    Welcome to the land of federal testing. Most questions are learn for the test and forget.

    Sure the USCG is a little arcane like the FAA but the REAL problem is insurance and liability in my opinion.
    Never liked those loud obnoxious boats, until I bought one of my own.

    I think that they do have insurance to use but only after yours is used up. I think that it would be a good question for your insurance guy.

    With out knowing anything about anchors insurance, the above would be a great buisness model. Average boat owner has 300k in liability most have an umbrella for a million, anchor doesn't pay anything out of their policy till 1.3 million has already been paid out!

    95% of most boat policies are null and void if/when you use your vessel for commercial purposes. My understanding is that Anchors insurance covers you as soon as you accept the charter from the drivers app.
