    Hey everyone I'm currently a non rate and I am almost ready to put my name on an A school list and I want to know more about what a BM does mainly on a daily basis. What are some of the responsibilities, and how do they differ between a small boat station and a cutter or large cutter. Thanks in advance

    Thanks! And what do you think you could tell me about the mathematical aspect of it? I've never been strong in the subject and I've heard it takes a lot math to get the job done.

    I am also horrible at math and am at BM-A school now. You will be fine, the CG allows calculators. If you were able to pass your basic algebra in high school you will have no issue with BM-A. Things like Time/speed/distance, Sunset/sunrise and tides/currents are your hardest subjects but its all about remembering the steps and formula and everything else falls in to place with a calculator.

    Other than painting, splicing line and plotting what do you do as a BM? None of it sounds "enjoyable"

    Execute law enforcement cases, drive and con small and large vessels, only rating in the Service that allows for senior enlisted officer in charge billets, guide aircraft for landing on the back of cutters, execute search and rescue cases, maintain the buoys of ports and waterways and the list goes on and on.

    More like what do you not do as a BM. Its one of the most versatle ratings in the coast guard, literally jack of all trades.
