Just noticed an oppetunity somewhere.
And thought we might look into it.
In which case you may have other local rules to comply with.
If you search for MGN280 it will tell you what would be required to operate a boat commercially "at sea" (which means outside categorised waters - which if you search you will find defined on the MCGA site). Its not necessarily a difficult process but its considerably more complex than just pitching up with a PB2 certificate and a boat which would "pass" an RNLI "Boat Safety Inspection". Most Sea Safari boats in the UK will be operating Cat 4 (or Cat 3 restricted daylight hours) boats with a Commercially Endorsed RYA Advanced Powerboat Skipper.
I think if you search the forums you'll also find some previous discussion - its not a road to riches.
