Workboat regulations (passengers)

Company "A" has a workboat which they use in the course of their daily business. Company "B" has a need to move staff by sea for their work, and asks "A" to assist. What would "A" need to do to comply with the relevant regulations if the assistance is granted for some kind of reward?

Is the boat used "at sea" or in categorised waters?

Is Company 'A's vessel already coded for the 'daily business' it's engaged in presently?

The boat is used at sea; boat is coded as a workboat - no provision for passenger seating, no extra lifejackets etc.

Workboat

The workboat code and its predecessor, the brown code both allow a work boat to carry up to 12 passengers plus their crew as well as cargo.

You will need to check the existing coding certificate to check both the maximum number of people allowed on board and the maximum number of passengers.

If the number of passengers is to few or none they you will need to get a surveyor to re inspect the vessel having topped up with the relevant LSA, safety notices etc.

Best bet is to talk to the surveyor who actually coded the boat.

Also

They would be required to deliver a "pre-departure" safety briefing for the passengers and their risk assessment/operating procedures would have to be updated.
