It saddens me that common sense is so over ridden with rules - basically it means that I could take a week long course and then be deemed SAFER than someone like Steve Curtis because I have more bits of paper than him!!! BONKERS!!!
I have put a thread up regarding what is required for the Commercial Endorsement and its quite abit more than a weeks course .

Just found it Tim

The Commercial exam

Sorry but I STILL think someone who has been doing this sort of thing for 20 years is going to be a lot wiser than someone newly qualified.

Still I suppose it does make a good starting point.

I suppose I will also have to take some form of test/exam when I wish to take up diving again - no bits of paper but have spent about 15 years diving in the Red Sea and other such areas - obviously counts for nothing though!!!

I am NOT trying to belittle training as such - just the heavy reliance made upon it these days as the answer to all problems.

That's completely different!

If someone takes some film of some jetskiers in action and then sells it and gives them some cash are they breaking the law as well???

So, are you now saying that it's only you and the boat that are going to be filmed rather than you having filming personnel on board?

Mr Codprawn

to be a good commericially endorsed skipper you need both Courses and Time, so for you to take out a film crew is simply not a good idea, which i think you have decided. Most people resoponded to you due to the "red tape " comment.

Whilst i have been a sailer for years i decided to get into the Motor side about 5 years ago

i have done
Powerboat 1+2
Advanced
Powerboat instructor
Advanced powerboat instructor
Day skipper
Coastal skipper +exam for commercial use
VHF
First aid
Sea survival
soem work with the RNLI
Radar
Engine
Dayskipper classroom
Yatchmaster classromm

Yatchmaster +exam for commercial use

Yatchmaster instructor

8000 mile s


You will find that many other people have done the same before they "charter" - i only consider myself an average skipper, so its the full package.

I said some MATES would be on board - not the film crew - and they won't be paid either!!!

My boat SHOULD be arriving end of June - builders were causing loads of delays but not all their fault - now the delays are my end due to work pressures etc!!!

Got a few - keep meaning to work out how to post piccies here - not too good considering I am seriously into photography AND an IT consultant!!!

Once I start won't be able to stop!!! You have been warned!!!

And yes the boat has taken far longer than expected but due to changes in my circumstances haven't been pushing them much - until now!!!
