August 7, 2017, Schooner SEA RAVEN was notified by the US Maritime Administration that she has received a waiver of the Jones Act, so that despite being a foreign built vessel (Canada 1972), she is now eligible to carry “Passengers for Hire” on charters in California coastal and inland waters. The Captain has now applied to USCG Documentation for a “Change of Trade Indicator” which will allow ¬†Coastwise Passenger charter Service aboard the Schooner.
