Further to the above chat, you will be pleased to hear there is an update and advice in RYA Wavelength on this issue.

Further to my last post, I was pleased to read the Wavelength that arrived this morning, and find two articles of specific interest.

There is a report in there on the advice and publications they are producing for commercial operators of high speed craft, and there is also an announcement that we will shortly be seeing the publication of Wavelength Commercial.

Further to that, we are working with a well known local training centre to offer a commercial boat drivers course; it will encompass all of the relevant RYA content and tickets as well as additional training specially geared towards commercial drivers. It will also be accredited by City and Guilds. More info to follow

it's a good start

I suspect one could lose more teeth on the handrails of the rib in the first pictures than on a good night out in Peterhead!

7.3 makes no mention of fat people, there a lot of impact on an obese persons spine as the are carrying 20 kilos plus of extra weight I know this as I am indeed fat

9.5 can it really be considered acceptable safe commercial practice to take people out sitting on tubes.

Other than that these look like good guidlines to me. shame they took so long

Hi Rogue Wave,
You're a hard man to track down! I recently did RYA level 2 powerboat training at Reading Sailing Club (so I can become a more useful roadie for the children). The instructors taking that said theyíd been on some advanced RYA powerboat and they were first class. I donít know enough about the subject to know if thatís what youíre enquiring about because I spend most of my time trying to get the mast out of the mud but it makes for a very vague connection to the thread.
Weíre planning to be in Gosport over half term so would be good to see you and discuss old times (I attached a photo of what appears to be a very large banana) as well as the content of RYA training courses.
Like I say youíre a hard man to track down and this forum doesn't appear to allow personal messages but I havenít told Google I donít want to be found so drop me a line.
James

I got my Advanced commercial endorsement in 2013 and to get that endorsement I had to do the recently introduced PPR (Professional Practices and Responsibilities) exam as well. This was to a large extent an assessment of your knowledge of MGN280 much of which relates to safety.
