As a BM/Reservist at a small boat station you will have qualify as small boat crew, boarding team member, boarding officer, and Coxswain. The difficulty and length of time depends on you. You'll only be drilling once a month and two weeks a year.
The average active duty BM can take up to 2 years to achieve those same quals.
Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please.
- Mark Twain
