I'd wait until after Tuesday to make any decisions on getting a USCG OUPV "6 Pack" License with the intent of running fishing charters. If the Limited Entry Guide Permit is voted in, your USGC license will not fulfill the needs to charter fish in VA.
I went to the Chesapeake Marine Training Institute in Hayes, Va. They do a great job here. The instructors were top notch making sure everyone knew the information before moving on, and the ladies in the office helped a ton with getting all of the necessary paper work filled out. If i had to take it again this is exactly where i would go. And instead of just taking the OUPV Six pack class, youd be better off taking a master 25-100 ton course. Its only 10 more questions on the final exam, and you come out with alot more. I ended up with a 50 ton inland licesne and an OUPV Six Pack for coastal waters.
