We operate Daughtercraft and FRC.s from Motherships 150nmiles offshore the drivers of the FRC's have PB2 with comm endorsements I checked and double checked the validity of this out with the RYA certification department prior to creating the risk assesment and they said it was fine. I even sent em the details of our motherhip and the platforms co-ordinates

The 1st intervention company I worked for consulted officially with the MCA by inviting them to a HIRA meeting for an upcoming BP job and the MCA stated that motherships were to regarded as the NDP. The FRC's should be driven by holders of a powerboat two certificate and the DSV by a minimum of Advanced Ticket Holders all tickets were to be commercially endorsed and the distance retrictions applied from the Mothership

Am I to take it the RYA/MCA were in error

Stu, are your frc's coded as SCV, if not the rules doug/ribochet refer to are not relevant and presumably the manning is defined elsewhere.? out of interest do you have a "good weather and daylight" restriction on them?

no coding on some of the FRC but they do come with all relevant lifting gear serts . any tesring required by the Marine department of the OIL Company. Daughtercraft are coded and have load line exemption tickets but they don't get driven by PB2 only holders

Dawn till dusk restriction anf up to 2 metre seas and viz must be over 500m.

My point being is that you can still work more tha 3 miles away from land on a commerciall endorsed PB2

I;m no expert on the Subject I just do it for a living and can think of about 40 people running on PB2 and about 8 companies that employ em

For the purpose of the cat 6 code we were talking about then a mothership 150NM offshore CAN NOT be a NDP.

If your operating 150 Nm offshore, even from a mothership, what medical certs are held, ML5 or ENG1?

Doug

I wasn't talking about any form od Coding I was telling the lad what work he could get with the ticket he wants, but if your saying it CAN NOT happen then I guess it DON'T


Alan
neither UKOG medicals formerly OPITO, the OIL industry doesn't recognise MCA medicals or survival tickets due to the extra requirement of Helicopter travels and Audiograms.

Post 9, You quoted Ribochet's paparagrph about Cat 6 Coding and asked if a mothership could be a NDP.

I replied and told you it could not if it is offshore as Cat 6 is restricetd to 3 miles offhsore. Sorry I did not realise that half way through your post you stopped talking about the cat 6 code, I must try harder to read your mind in future

Well maybe but the ML5 lasts 5 yrs instead of 2 so if you don't plan to be working more then 60 NM offshore, on large vessel or overseas on non UK flagged craft then the ML5 maybe better
