No its for all commercial upto 24m, see MSN 1808. The RYA have a similar exemption where there training centres do not need to be coded, instead they get to use catogrised waters A,B,C and D and 3 NM to sea, great for Solent schools.

You can operate in categorised waters from The Hamble with a Pb2 and commercial endorsement, but you still would need first aid, medcal, and sea survival and VHF, a lot of local operators run just that under local authority licensing not MCA coding. I believe those authorities are now slowly getting up to MCA levels but certainly Hamble under Eastleigh Council still operate this way with local inspections. As stated the Solent would be your restricted area . I think is still correct but am sure others locally can help

not to bothered for my self as my ribs going for cat2, i would go for a boatmans licence if i was staying in the solent but i'm not, just going through all the kit you need, and i was thinking that if you put all this kit and crew on a 6 mt boat most boats would fail the survey with insufficent freeboard

You would have the First Aid and Medical anyway in order to get any cert commercailly endorsed, however I dont think you would need the VHF.

Thats a pretty big code for a RIB, I guess you have a cabin? The number of people you are coded for, for cat 2 is normally proportainal to the number of berths you have.

No, you don't need the certificate yourself. The rules say that there has to be someone with a radio operators licence on board a coded boat, but they don't stipulate that it has to be the skipper
