Our Deck volunteers serve a vital role in the continued operations of the VIRGINIA V. We have 7 positions on the vessel: Deck 4 to Deck 1, Bosun, Mate, and Captain. All positions require a drug screening, and the Captain position requires a 100-ton USCG Masters license. This page is designed as a resource for these crew members.
