Ian called in yesterday to get the details etc etc.
We did discuss it at the end of last year but it got mislaid/forgot etc.

Well you did emigrate to Plymouth Ian!!!!

Look forward to you doing the course.

Thanks all

As David has said, i saw him a couple of days ago and things are on the move.

I am looking forward to the course, might even get to go on a long trip, at night and in bad weather

Well Plymouth is so far away ain't it

Must get my head stuck into these books now

All the best

Ian

Sorry Kathleen

I think you have got the wrong impression, i may have found my way to the Solent and more importantly back, but it dont hide the fact i can't do a route on paper chart with all the tides etc

Sorry to have disapointed you

You're never a disappointment mate.

(Thanks for flagging up the racing! Now that himself is back from his Scottish travels I shall draw his attention to it. Thanks a lot for the offer of boat space )

looked through old G90

I would like to work toward advanced with comercial endorsement over the next 2 years but noticed in the entry requirements that you need to log 400 miles. G90 has a column for hours logged but not miles, wish I'd noticed earlier! The best that can be done would be an estimate based on the plan for the days so far logged is this ok?

Does this also include days/miles as crew? as I would have to begin logging that.

Hi.

There is no need to actually complete a physical log (unless you want to) it is really just to give you a guide as to the amount of boating you should have done to be at the right level. Note though now (as per other posts) that the commercial endorsement is distinct from the Advanced Certificate. By all means give me a call if you want to discuss your experience level as i can certainly give you a clear indication re whether you have the relevant level of experience.

What is G90? Presume a very old powerboat logbook?

Paul

Hello Paul,

Oh yes G90 is ancient! My plan was to progress to intermediate then onto advanced powerboat and then eventually to get the comercial endorsement. I was concerned that I was not recording my experience in the correct way.

As it is not my profession and is something that I can only do at weekends it will be slow process but rewarding none the less. When ready I'll take the intermediate course, however what I am keenly missing at the moment is a useful session on throttle control and trim control, as yet black arts!
