    Do MSTs ever get to do SAR as part of a small boat crew?  I realize that boat crew members are usually BMs and MKs, and that the primary role of an MST is not SAR, but I know that there are stations where there are multiple missions, that have MSTs.  If I became an MST at such a station (I would be going Reserves-side, so I'd know going in what my rating would be and where I'd be serving), would I be able to qualify as boat crew and go on SAR missions?

    I am kind of interested in MST, because I like the idea of helping to protect the environment, and I work in the sciences.  But I also would like to do small-boat SAR, and if MST means that I wouldn't be able to do that, I'd be less likely to choose it.

    As a Reserve MST I wouldn't count on getting Boat Crew Qualified. You should get in touch with your recruiter, they can contact the unit where you will drill, and get you some information.

    There are a lot of Coast Guard units within commuting distance of where I live, so I have no idea yet where I'd be drilling (I'm near the beginning of the process - all I've done so far is make initial contact with the recruiter and get pre-qualified). But this is good to know, thank you.

    I was supposed to meet with my recruiter last week, but she had a family emergency and had to reschedule to this upcoming week. So I will talk to her about this then.

    it really depends on the unit and how everything goes. but as a reserve your primary objective will be getting your first qual. this is going to take you a while and really depends on what shop you are put in. it could take you a year for one qual or 2 1/2 years for another just depending on your motivation time that you are there whats goign on and also the people you work with
