Hi,

Would somebody be able to explain MMSI's for me? Or better yet if anyone has some documentation I could have a read of for MMSI's / DSC / VHF course in general that would be great!

Thanks for the advise so far!

Sounds great that does Tony, really appreciate that mate! If you could bring it back and I could borrow it would be super!

I take the Rib down to Devon, or should say I will take it down there as i've only just ordered it! Ive been taking the previous boat down there for years though!

Try the eGMDSS website. It's a free online course, covers the same as the RYA course and a bit more. It even has a DSC VHF simulator, bit crap compared to using a real radio but good enough to give you an idea. No "official" exam at the end though so you wont get a licence out of it.

Cheers,

Stuart

Thanks! I quite often try and avoid getting people to help as they are usually more of a hindrance - I'm sure you were of great help though!

I know what you mean, I think help is probably a bit OTT, I was an Official rope catcher! lol.
