On inland waterways, canals etc. is a radio of any use? Does anyone monitor a channel and co-ordinate emergencies like MCA do at sea?

If the course is run right , it's basically an Electronic Sea Safety Course since all of your Electronics that transmit must be added to your ships licence...

Exactly. You'll learn a lot more on the course than you think.

Do the course dude.

Scottish Canals use it for locks, and all inland waterway instructors need the VHF certificate of competence and authority to operate...if this answers your question partially...Loch Lomond you can talk to clyde opps belfast coastguard.

It's important to consider those very real responsibilities you have as skipper when you step onto your boat and invest in yourself.

When I have just paid out 1000 for car insurance I'm waiting for the cheapest price haha.

But to put peoples mind at risk I always carry inside my dry bag
Vhf
Mobile
Flares
Tools
Repair kit

My boat is also equipped with my main engine,spare engine,oars,anchor with plenty of line

I also check tide times,weather and keep in touch with people who know where I am.

But yes I will do it sometime this year.

There was a guy... who if he could get a few people together would do the course for about 50 quid all in at Holyhead coast guard station. I see that you live in N Wales it might be worth you trying to find out.

Just found his details from my kayak forum "North Wales Kayak Fishing", its from 3 years ago but he might still be around...


Contact Dave Brewer. He is a coast guard at Holyhead. He also runs VHF courses, and at a good price. .
