MSN 1827 Categorisation of Waters will tell you whether the bit of water you're thinking of working on is A,B,C or D.

Sorry Rachel. The key word here is "working". This is a bit of a weird one, because commercial work isn't defined. Leisure use is defined, and commercial work is simply anything that isn't leisure. In this case, it is clearly work and therefore needs a commercial endorsement.

I suspect you may be confusing the requirements for the boat with the requirements for the skipper. The boat will not need to be commercially coded to work in Categorised waters, but I'm afraid the skipper will need to be

Ian - not according to the link Rachel referred to (Boatmasters' Licences) - Section 4, second last line of table says:

RYA/MCA Powerboat Level 2 without commercial endorsement and 12 month relevant experience ............... A and B only [my emphasis]

Don't know if that is right - but its what it says!

The MSCC will / do inspect your boat / Rib and do have specific requirements, not quiet as strict as coding, but that is a good guideline.
