Do you get much interest at 80 per day? I pay at least double that (... but then, I am very fussy about who I work with)

Unfortunately

That 80 quid a day is quite a common rate in the Solent also.

Well I pay 100/day for a PB2 instructor. More for those that hold higher qualifications. I don't know anybody that would work for 80 a day in the Solent.

It's good to hear that you pay more and that there are no PBI's willing to work for less.

NAVSAR were willing to publish a day rate which is unusual. My comments to SEA Skills, which I have made before in these forums, are that his rates are very nice, but not typical of the rates in areas with more schools in competition with each other.

Good news is that any PBI looking for work now has three leads and starter rates.

Out of interest what would you pay for a Commercial Power Yachtmaster, APBI for 10 years with a passion for enabling safety and improving people as boat drivers.

Slightly off topic, has anyone added up the money that the RYA courses cost to get to instructor, I reckon it will take more than a couple of seasons to get a return on your investment

From my experience, the going rate in the South West is 80-100/day for a Level 2 instructor, 100-120/day for a advanced instructor and 120-150/day for a Yachtmaster/Shorebased instructor.

You should be able to get upto level 2 instructor level for around 1000 (assuming previous boating experience), so break even point would be 10-12.5 days.
