Hi Rich

You need to be bit more specific regarding your inspection. What are they inspecting, is it the boat, are you looking at coding and what sort of coding etc. Good place to ask though as there are many people on this forum who can help you.

Hi Iceman
Useful tip is to go onto RYA website & download Inspectors Report Form.
I`m not sure if that`s strictly advised however it`s a cast iron way to pass your inspection!

Iceman should already have this form and made sure that the first two pages are fully completed prior to the arrival of the RYA Centre Inspector

It is most certainly advised

If only it were that simple

The only cast iron way to pass is to meet all the requirements of the RYA Recognition Guidance Notes

If only there was an inspector who was a member here!

My experience is if the boat is obviously msintained and properly equipped and intrisicly seaworthy the boat will get through



IM IN TRANSIT and I am not getting on with tthis app at all well

so Ill post the rest tomorrow when I am on a pc



one tip is to get the Stickers out of the RNLI Sea safety booklet and use the on the boat to indicate where you have Stowed first aid flares etc

Other than that you procedures need to be correct

Don't be surprised if you are asked to do remedial work, even established centres seem to be asked each year from what I have seen

RYA Inspection

Ribochet

Do not assume that RYA inspection procedures are the same everywhere as they are clearly not, and it very definitely" is that simple" to pass your inspection if you comply with all sections of the inspection report form otherwise what would be the point in having the form.

there are a few of us as Stu knows
Without getting involved in any particular inspection I would fully agree with Ribochet - as usual
Filling in the inspection form ready for your inspector visit is a real help on inspections and a pain in the butt when the excuse "we didn't get one this year" comes up -AGAIN!! How many times is that trotted out. Try and download one if you've lost it! But please don't tell fibs! It doesn't help anyone. The inspector may well have a spare form but using that means the whole process takes so much longer.
Filling in the form then means that you have found the instructor certs and first aid certs that you haven't seen since last year and had time to update them if they have expired. Instead of the all too often paper chase for the certs which just indicates lack of care & organisation in running the place.
Then go through the inspection points and ensure that you can answer them all and have the paperwork available to back it up where required. You know the guy is coming to see you so what can the excuse be for not being ready!
The boats-well if the boats aren't suitable/properly equipped/well maintained you have only yourself to blame. Our training boats were/are our absolute pride and joy, if they were not we wouldn't be doing it !
