    QRP Boat spaces?

    Can any of you CRS Marines give me an explanation of what a QRP boat space is?

    This question is in reference to MARADMIN 151/50 where it states:


    FIRST-TERM MARINES WHO DESIRE A REENLISTMENT ONCE BOAT SPACE CAPS HAVE BEEN MET, MUST COMPETE FOR LIMITED QRP BOAT SPACES OR CONDUCT A LATERAL MOVE REENLISTMENT INTO AN OPEN MOS.

    Anyone? SSgt Ramsey, you out there?

    REF/A/MSGID:GENADMIN/CMC DC/YMD:20080630//
    REF/B/MSGID:GENADMIN/CMC DC/YMD:20080701//
    NARR/REF (A) IS MARADMIN 367/08, FY09 ENLISTED RETENTION GUIDELINES.

    POC/HAINES/CAPT/MMEA-6 FTAP OFFICER/-/TEL:703-784-9238//
    GENTEXT/REMARKS/

    1. PURPOSE. TO UPDATE COMMANDERS, SERGEANTS MAJOR,
    CRS(S), AND MARINES ON THE STATUS OF THE FY09 FTAP PLAN.

    2. BACKGROUND. THE FY09 FTAP SEASON BEGAN ON 1 JUL 2008. SINCE
    THEN, BOAT SPACES HAVE BEEN FILLING RAPIDLY WITH MANY MOS(S)
    APPROACHING ANNUAL FY09 BOAT SPACE REQUIREMENTS. DUE TO THE RAPID
    EXECUTION OF FIRST TERM REENLISTMENTS, AND AS OUTLINED IN REF (A),
    THE QUALITY REENLISTMENT PROGRAM (QRP) WILL BEGIN IN DECEMBER 2008
    FOR MOS(S) THAT ARE APPROACHING ANNUAL REQUIREMENTS. IN SUMMARY, A
    QRP REENLISTMENT REQUIRES THE FOLLOWING PREREQUISITES: MUST BE A
    NCO; IN SERVICE PRO/CONS MUST AVERAGE 4.5/4.5; AND MUST HAVE A
    CURRENT 1ST CLASS PFT. ADDITIONAL QRP INFORMATION MAY BE
    FOUND IN PARAGRAPH 11 OF REF (A). ONCE A QRP HAS BEEN
    CONDUCTED, MOS(S) WILL CLOSE TO THE REMAINDER OF THE FTAP FY09
    POPULATION. THERE WILL REMAIN, HOWEVER, SIGNIFICANT REENLISTMENT
    OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE TO INTERESTED AND QUALIFIED MARINES WHO
    SUBMIT FOR A LATERAL MOVE (LM) REENLISTMENT; LM DESIGNATED MOS(S)
    AND THEIR SRB AMOUNTS ARE OUTLINED IN REF (B).

    3. ACTION. COMMANDERS, SERGEANTS MAJOR, AND CRS(S) SHOULD
    ENCOURAGE MARINES TO MAKE THEIR REENLISTMENT DECISION AS EARLY AS
    POSSIBLE. FY09 FTAP MARINES WHO DESIRE TO "STAY MARINE" SHOULD
    SUBMIT FOR REENLISTMENT AS SOON AS POSSIBLE TO MAXIMIZE POTENTIAL
    FOR A RETENTION OPPORTUNITY. FURTHERMORE, MARINES WHO DELAY
    SUBMITTING REENLISTMENT REQUESTS SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE RISK OF
    LOSING A REENLISTMENT OPPORTUNITY IN THEIR PRIMARY MOS DUE TO MOS(S)
    BEING CLOSED UPON REACHING ANNUAL BOAT SPACE GOALS. CRS(S) ARE
    ENCOURAGED TO ACTIVELY MONITOR THE FY09 FTAP BOAT SPACE REPORT
    RESIDENT WITHIN THE TOTAL FORCE RETENTION SYSTEM (TFRS) AND TO KEEP
    THEIR COMMANDS INFORMED.

    4. COORDINATING INSTRUCTIONS.
    A. COMMANDS ARE ENCOURAGED TO REVIEW REF (A).
    B. BEGINNING IN NOVEMBER MOS(S) SUBJECT TO QRP WILL BE
    ANNOUNCED VIA TFRS MESSAGE BY THE 15TH OF EACH MONTH WITH THE ACTUAL
    QRP BOARD BEING HELD DURING THE SUBSEQUENT MONTH. MOS(S) TO BE
    CONSIDERED ON THE FIRST QRP BOARD IN DECEMBER 2008 WILL BE RELEASED
    VIA TFRS MESSAGE NLT 15 NOV 2008.

    Boat Spaces:
    Each fiscal year (beginning in October), the Marine Corps determines how much manpower it needs for each MOS, distributed among the different ranks within that MOS. The quantity of manpower they decide upon for a given MOS determines how many slots are available for Marines who's EAS occurs in that fiscal year to reenlist within that MOS, or lat-move into it. These slots are referred to as "Boat Spaces".





    QRP:

    The QRP (Quality Reenlistment Program), open to first-term corporals and sergeants, allows distinguished Marines to stay in their MOS if the boat space capacity has been reached.
    Those competing in the QRP must have their commanding officer’s recommendation, a first class physical fitness test score, no history of weight control and no punishments on record. Even with the QRP, MOSs cannot exceed 105 percent capacity.


    Does that answer your question?

    Yes, it does answer.

    I forgot to update this. I spoke to a CRS yesterday who clued me into to all this QRP mumbo jumbo.

    Beltayn thanks for posting that, it may help someone out in the future.
