Hi, it was a while ago but I don't remember anything the MCA Boatmaster - it was all RYA qualifications. I will dig out my book and check.

Tim M - thanks that was what I was after.

I passed my MCA Boatman's licence in 1983. I had to get a boat owner to want me to drive his boat and then, an MCA surveyer had a chat in an office with me and off I went.
Now with navigation not nessasary( chart plotters) Boats easy to drive( twin screw and bow thrust)
Collision avoidance easy ( radar and AIS). Weather forecast reliable and engines reliable, the whole thing is easy and yet getting a ticket to drive a boat for money is harder.. It's stupid!
Just a comment!!
