Licenses are issued by the Coast Guard, and there are several of them. The lowest is the "6-pack" or "Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel". This allows you to take up to 6 paying passengers on a boat of less than 50 tons. The 50 ton Master's license is the next step up, then 200 ton, then 500 ton, then unlimited (if I remember correctly). In addition to tests at each level, there are sea time requirements amd with the higher tonnages, you must pass the Mates test and work at that rate before you can sit for that tonnage Master's license. The Coast Guard can tell you everything you need to know.

First, you must know that getting a skipper license isn't easy since it requires responsibility not only for the vassel itself but also for the people and crew aboard. It takes a long time and some bureaucracy to get this license. For more details: and

We are going to order CISCO2911-v/k9 voice bundle, and we are not sure if we suppose to order user license in order to register IP Phone, or the voice bundle itself has the license

As to the CISCO2911-v/k9, the Unified CME and SRST voice bundles include 25 CME or SRST seats across all the platform bundles. If you wish to add additional users, you need to order additional feature licenses to add up to the desired user count. Finally, if you are ordering Cisco Unified Communications Manager Express, you need to purchase IP phone licenses for each phone that you will connect to the CME system.

T8845pv Timer ignores pin up for no water day

I think this is how it should operate:
When the day skipper pin is pushed down on skipper-wheel....
... the day skipper pin pushes a lever away from trippers... so the trippers will not engage the lever ... and the day of watering is skipped.

Turn power OFF.
Take off plastic cover over the wiring terminals.
See if that is how it works, and look to see if something is missing.
Here is close up based on Intermatic image of 14-day skipper wheel, and you can see (what I assume) is the skipper pin pushing a lever.

Attach close-up photo of your timer.
If you have digital camera, set to macro or tulip icon for close ups... otherwise phone cameras don't give clear view unless lighting is good.

Assuming the timer is defective... I am not certain of Intermatic's warranty policy... except they have 1 year full warranty, and could send just the timer mechanism so you do not have to replace the box... steps: take photo of wiring, disconnect wires, snap or screw new timer into existing box, reconnect wires, and then send defect back to

Do I need a special license to sail a Yacht?

You do not need a license to sail your Yacht. However, if it is not yours and you are renting it, you may need a sailing license or some sort of certificate that proofs that you are capable of sailing the boat.

Also keep in mind that this may differ from country to country so you may want to double check.

There is a silver pin that fits into the periphery of the timer. I think this trips the smaller dial to rotate. If the sprinkler is set to go off at 4am, where should I place this silver pin for it to...

You have Intermatic sprinkler timer.
The silver pin inserts into the yellow dial at 12:00 midnight, and it rotates the skipper wheel.
Skipper wheel is necessary only if you want to skip certain days of the week, otherwise the timer cycle repeats each 24-hour period.
To skip a day, the skipper pin is pushed down for that day. Leave skipper pin up for days you want to water.

Where can I find skipper pins for my intermatic irrigation? I only need the pins that control my days nothing else.

I would try going or calling a local electrical wholesale supplier in your area not sure if pins are normally sold separately.

How do you set the days that you want the system to operate ?

R88 series timers at Intermatic.
Click on model number to see manual:

Add a comment if you have different timer

At fixya, we're not supposed to copy-paste from manual, but manual says information clearly.
If timer has the day-skipper wheel located lower left of large yellow dial:
Not every timer has day-skipper wheel, in which case timer works same for each day.
TO SKIP DAYS: Turn black skipper wheel COUNTER-CLOCKWISE
until today's day is in front of "14" arrow. Press pins DOWN on days
of NO watering. The skipper wheel must have all pins UP for daily

Additional instructions:
1. TO SET FIRST ZONE: For watering, push gold pin into slot on yellow
dial at desired ON time. For each 12 minutes of additional watering
add one pin WITHOUT skipping a slot.
2. TO CHANGE ZONES: Leave one blank slot on yellow dial after ON
line (gold pin), and valve will automatically advance to next zone.
3. TO SET ADDITIONAL ZONES: Repeat steps 1 and 2. REMEMBER
to leave blank space between zones
4. TO SET TIME OF DAY: Turn yellow dial CLOCKWISE, until correct
line is at end of silver time pointer. Do NOT turn silver pointer.
5. TO SKIP DAYS: Turn black skipper wheel COUNTER-CLOCKWISE
until today's day is in front of "14" arrow. Press pins DOWN on days
of NO watering. The skipper wheel must have all pins UP for daily
6. PUT SELECTOR SWITCH IN AUTO: This switch can be used to turn
the system ON or OFF for manual operation without affecting the set

1) The silver pin goes at 12 midnight on large yellow dial. This pin advances the skipper wheel each day.
2) Turn yellow dial clockwise until current time lines up with silver pointer.
3) Rotate skipper wheel counter-clockwise until today's day (Monday) is in front of 14 arrow.
4) To skip a day of watering, the skipper pin is pushed down for that day. So you want to push down Monday and Tuesday.
For watering, the skipper pins is up for that day. So you want The skipper pin up for Tuesday.
5) The brass trippers are inserted on yellow wheel. Each brass tripper represents 12 minutes of watering for example. So if you want to water for 1/2 hour, then put two consecutive pins on the yellow timer wheel. For 1 hour, put 4 consecutive pins.
