Err thought you was mates with Dave Hickman give him a bell www.powerboat-instruction.co.uk i think is his website. If not come to the Solent every nav mark in the book lots of shipping movement best place in the world for training can sort out your commercial exam as well.

I did an Advanced course with David Hickman at the end of last year, as always David was very good & the course was great fun.

I passed the medical for the Commercial Endorsement last week, so now want to know what (in practice) I can do with it.

Or you could give Mt Batten a call as they run them also.

any idea of the cost involved in these commercial courses?

My boat has previously been mca coded to brown level.

Would I be able to charter the boat out with myself as the skipper with these qualifications???

Cheers Craig C

The brown code is the workboat code. Is the vessel still coded to this or has it lapsed. If lapsed i believe that you will need to start again. There is anew harmonised code that embraces many of the previous separate codes - red, yellow, brown etc

An Advanced Commercial Endorsement (equivalent to Coastal Skipper) allows you to operate up to 20 Miles from a safe haven day or night - or less depending on what the craft is coded to.

Far more info is available here about the endorsment itself http://www.rya.org.uk/training/yacht...tentId=3721708 The cost is set by the RYA and is something like 120. Of course if you undertake additional training with a school ahead of a course then that is charged according to your arrangment with the school.

Hope this helps

Paul
