The twin screw workboat I'm fine on.
How do you go about proving your sea time? I can go out on fishing trips and do over 60 miles but still end up back at the same port.

What medical do I need, seems the RYA are money spinning on the sea survival and medical, I bet my RNLI medical is no good either or the sea survival I did at Poole?
What standard does the first aid have to be to?

Thanks for the help.

well the RYA has sea time requirements and they have been noted in this thread already, proof is a from a discharge book, RYA log book, PYA log book or and other method like letter from employer etc or just type up your own log!

It doesn't need to be a RYA sea survival, a MN, seafish or a RNLI one would do, also the medical can be a ML5 , https://afrmmcanet.mcga.gov.uk/formspublic/MSF4112.pdf , that your doctor completes and is limited to 60nm offshore or a MN ENG 1 at a specialist doctor, http://www.mcga.gov.uk/c4mca/ds-shs-mgn_264-2.pdf , for upto 150nm offshore.

the first aid has to be at least 1 day so if you have done with RNLI you would be ok.

These requirements do not come from the RYA but the government via the MCA as extra training for a commercial endorsement.

do you need a commercial endorsement?

I work away alot and some times have equal or more than equal time off so thought if I completed my commercial I could deliver the odd boat in my time off.
I have loads of seatime with the RNLI but as someone else said its not all in long passages. Usually one or two hours unless its a callout?

Chewy, your RNLI sea survival/first aid are STCW95 (MCA) recognised - so should be fine with the RYA. Not sure her they would accept the medical, but the RNLI one is effectively the same as the one the RYA want you to do for commercial endorsement. If it's not acceptable, I'm sure your HMA would knock out a bargain medical if you spoke to them nicely!!

If you have a United Kingdom Ooffshore Oowners Association (UKOOA) medical and a BOSIET I've got the RYA to accept those. Also are you 2 on and 2 off or lucky enough for 2 on 3 off

I got most ofl my miles in tugging and got paid for doing it. It's rough and ready and you need a bit of strength but your guaranteed 6 night hours everyday you are at sea and a trip from say Liverpool to Middlesboro would take 6 or 7 days depending on weather. It also makes you a lot more Savvy on deck and you could fit trip in with your downtime.
