Erm, not sure that's right.

In Barmouth, if you operate a boat commercially in the harbour, and the council licences that vessel, you have to have their licence. If you operate a boat under MCA regs, then you don't.

I've got my Advanced PB (Endorsed) and skipper my Cat 4 Coded RIB no probs - but if I want to spend a day chugging about on a ferry, I need the ferryman's licence. The licence was £35 on production of documentation that proved I was competant (i.e. all the quals that I use to drive the RIB).

I suspect that Miss Behaving's RIB is licenced under council regs - so her MCA/RYA qualifications will be recognised - but you still need the council's boatmans licence.

Dylan...

P.S. I don't think that the MCA will relax the liferaft condition!!

Miss Behaving is liecenced under council regs and boatmans liecence is required. However the inspector recognised the MCA Com endorcement as being for higher than council requirements so full examination was not nessasary and boatmans liecence issued. I guess this is all about attracting additional revenue like most things.

I think I better change my tittle I used the Baot name, needless to say I am not a Miss, I am definatly a bloke!!

IoW - Skipper Licensing Update - Official Verdict

Alan,

I am sorry there has been such a delay since our last exchange of e-mails. I am grateful to Mark Towel of the M&CG for his helpful advice and for your courtesy in involving me in your exchanges with various yachting interests.



Mark has confirmed that the MCA certificate of Competency for Deck Officers; RYA Yacht Master or Coastal Skipper Certificate; MCA Boat Masterís Certificate are all exempt from the requirements of the local boatmanís licence though we can require a local knowledge test.



As for vessels, exemptions apply if they hold the MCA Small Commercial Vessel Certificate or the MCA Passenger Certificate.

If these various certificates are held (or higher) then there is no need for a local boatmanís licence under the Public Health (Amendment Acts) 1909.



I hope this now clears up any outstanding misunderstandings.
