I'm going to Battery Park to submit my 6 pack paperwork tomorrow. I just read a copy of a chapter from a book on towing operations. I was wondering if anyone could point me to any sample tests for the towing endorsement test to see if I am ready for this 20 question test? Thanks in advance, Alan

Probably not...unless you have read up a lot on heavy towing...

there's questions about fishplates, natural fiber line, wire versus natural versus nylon hawsers and the care of, ....

here's a couple of typical questions...



A tow consists of 8 barges: 6 jumbo barges made up 3


abreast and 2 long, with 2 standard barges abreast as
lead barges. How long is this tow?



A license for apprentice mate (steersman) of


uninspected towing vessels shall be renewed within
what time period before or after the expiration date?

The 4 hour course makes it A LOT EASIER....

But many have done it with just studying and testing...but I'm not sure how much prep they did....or if they just had the easier questions or got lucky or a combination of all....
