Stern Drive RYA Training Rib

If the craft is a jet drive/leg/, the Level 2 may is endorsed for that propulsion system,it is still a planing craft qualification though....the ideal would be training on both props/stern drive types to achieve the full spectrum of familiarity and be examined accordingly. This may be desirable if the ticket is to be commercially endorsed.

The L2 is not usually endorsed for particular propulsion systems.

L2 training does not normally culminate in an exam

So if you was looking to run a level 2 qualification , would you be able to run this on a jet drive ?

Hi Doug the "exam"is by continuous assessment not a formal type...is it not,the endorsements, as I have been informed can be added if requested,the only firm entry re. boat types is planing/semi planing/displacement,the value of recording power units is only mentioned for the Personal Powerboating Log purposes.....

Powerboat level 2 courses can be run on any craft and power system as long as it meets the requirements of the RYA recognition guidelines. ie it has suitable seating, equipment and is suitable for use in the training area operating from. The same applies for own boat tuition.

Jet drives, stern drives etc are all suitable but are usually used by specialist training centres who specialise in those craft. The majorityof training centres for PBL2 use boats with out board for a number of reasons. Namely, they are cheaper to purchase and maintain, the boats they use for training often aren't big enough for inboard engines and also the majority of their clients are going to go away and drive boats with outboards so want to learn on boats with outboards.

Certificates should only be endorsed for planning/non planning and tidal/inland. The students log book is for recording the type of craft they have experience driving.
