I have been in contact with safewater and I dont need a permit as my engine is only 4hp (anything under 6 hp is permit free). Strange now that I know I dont need a permit I am thinking of doing the course anyway just to improve my knowledge and if i do get a bigger boat in the future I will be ready to go.

Just waiting for the weather to improve now and I will be out and about, cant wait.

Personally it seems wrong that the Council are requiring qualifications given that the RYA don't require the PB2 as a licence to operate, but encourage it instead.

What happens if you say you've got a PB2, do they check it? How?

I can understand insurance requirements but what happens if I have an alternative qualification like Waterski, diver ones? Are these ignored?
