Coding

Hi Guys

If you had a RIB coded for 20 miles from a safe haven would you be able to use it for pleasure only to go more than 20 miles from a safe haven?

can't see any reason why if it was used for pleasure a coded rib would not be allowed to go further than its NPD ,loads of ribs go cross channel all they need is SSR and all the other relevant bits of paper , i go alot further along the coast in mine when its just me and the wife so go for it.

If i understand you correctly you are asking "can you use a coded craft as a pleasure vessel to do whatever you want with?". My interpretation is that a commercial craft is only such when it has fee paying passengers on board else i believe it to be a 'normal' (albeit well kitted out ) vessel. As Tim says we all use uncoded training vessels well beyond the 3 miles NDP all the time and coded ones beyond theirs - but for pleasure.

So in short agree with tim

Paul

I kinda agree with Tim and Paul.

The major difference between a twenty mile code and a longer range is shelter for crew and passengers (i think). I would suggest that you talk to your insurance brokers as you may find that if you are insured commercially you may not be covered for pleasure.

but I wouldn't think twice about going out with a few buddies (if I had any)outside of the twenty mile restriction

This is one of the FAQ on the MCA's web site and the answer is yes.

If i was you Jono i would check my insurance policy/ insurance broker
to see if you are covered for pleasure use as well, you should be ,depends on what type of commercial broker you went through, i checked mine after i read you post and am covered for both.

Hi Jono/Tim

This point about insurance interests me as I think we all kinda do the same thing and the insurance thing's been bugging me lately

I am going to use Jono G's scenario as it fits the Bill but this is no reflection on the driving ability of either Jono's (I'll do that in another post)

Jono G runs a company that does training and charter that company insures the boats they use. Presently coded prosports but soon to be Shakespeares.

Jono and Jono G have started configuring and supplying Rib packages (good luck by the way)

I guess the boats are insured if they are driven by a member of staff or skipper employed or contracted by Pro powerboats .

Say the boat was lent to Jono to go thirty miles off shore. The boats is no longer a commercial boat and therefore the driver isn't an employee ( I dunno you tell me) or the driver is an employee and the boat is operating illegally.

Just to confuse things the boat has a collision with a small rib off the coast of Ireland and somebody gets a damaged hand or unfortunately worse.
and the lawsuit is for .25meg

Who's liable Pro powerboats, Jono, Jonog ..I am presuming that the insurance company has an out here as the boat is operating illegally if the driver is an employee.

Is the answer to name drivers on the policy ( I bet they ain't at the moment)

I'll state again that this isn't me having a go at either drivers or any reflection on Pro powerboats training it's just somethig that I have been worrying about a bit lately


Over to you Porthcawl Steve . What do you think guys I know its a bit Machevellian but I think it may have just happenned to somebody else

Thanks Tim I think that covers it

who are you insured with?

It looks like insurance and restrictions is definitely one for the commercial course you are thinking about

cheers
