Delivering a Ship Panama - Canada
Hello- I recently became a mate, and I am currently working as a 2nd mate on the Great Lakes in Canada. I will be joining a new ship in Panama in October to bring her up to Canada. I have never worked outside of the Great Lakes, so I was wondering what kind of information I should maybe look up/practice before this voyage. (ie. azimuths, or publications, tide tables). Just some things that would be useful to know for this voyage. Thanks! Kelsey

Merchant Mariner Credential Medical Evaluation Report CG719K
I need to have the above physical exam for admittance to the Great Lakes Maritime Academy. My Univ. of Iowa , primary care physician will not perform the exam and states "it's functional exam which she can not do." The coast guard has told me any, will say M.D., can perform this exam. I am confused and can't seem to get help from GLMA and I think my doctor is intimidated by the CG71K forms. This is really throwing a wrench in my enrollment process. Where can I get this exam done? Thank-you from seameshine posted 12/12/13
