Medical for Commercial Endorsement

Does anyone know whether an ENG1 can be used instead of the ML5 - or do you have to do the ML5 for the RYA to endorse your ticket?

Ta.

I would give the RYA a ring for clarification given the cost of a medical and the risk of having to start again if the RYA say no. If you already have a ENG1 the commerical endorsement which is a separate licence / certificate will only be valid for 5 years from the medical date so if its a couple of years old might be worth biting the bullet and starting again with an ML5.

Just had mine commercially endorsed by the RYA and used the ML5 form. It wasn't cheap everyone seems to want a pound of flesh

The ML5 medical is acceptable as an alternative to the ENG1 for skippers of small commercial vessels (up to 24m and max 12 passengers) in sea areas Cat 2,3,4,5 & 6. i.e. no further than 60 miles from a safe haven.
For other vessels i.e over 60miles from a safe haven and also vessels with 13 or more paying passengers than the ENG1 is required.
The RYA charge 15.00 to commercially endorse your L2, ADV PB, Coastal Skipper or YM. For this you need the Sea Survival and Medical (ENG1 or ML5). You will only get endorsement on your RYA certificate for up to 24m and max 12 passengers.
What you GP charges is basically up to him/her. But the ENG1 needs to be done at a MCA recognised GP.
As an alternative the following are/will be allowed under the new coding regs:
HSE Diving medical
CAA Commercial Pilots licence
DVLA Group 2 drivers licence.

I have just received the above info from my surveyors regarding manning. If anyone wants a copy of the Annex 3, Manning of small commercial Vessels please e mail or PM me.

I hope the above helps

ENG1s are only valid for 2 years now, better check if this affects the period of validity? Am I right in thinking that ML5's are still for 5 years?
