Here's another option for you:

Boat Hire, Outboard Hire and Marine Equipment Hire :: Boats2Go

It isn't especially cheap, but would let you experiment with SIBs...

About 100 a day for a 3.8 with the 25hp delivered to Edinburgh, not bad really. Might pick one up for a couple of days.
I could see that on Dragon's Den.... so you're going to post speedboats to people on the internet.... ah'm oot!

Well I got a half-day on the Med on a Cap Camarat 555 90hp, not a RIB (oh the shame)

http://www.darkpelican.com/en/bateau-moyen.php

Had a blast around Nice and Monaco, sunbathed, swam, saw Le Grand Bleu at close quarters at Cap Ferrat. It was hell I tell you!

Have since found bareboat RIB charter available out of Largs, so will be looking into that very soon

Moreover, it specifies "Coastal" specifically also ("Inland" is not checked).

When I've completed the form for the ICC, it likewise reflects both of the items above.

Perhaps the 24m guidance mentioned earlier was from a while back (in terms of years) and it's been changed recently?

Best,

Gary.

Gary PB2 is not a licence which is where the first "issue" begins. It doesn't permit you to do anything. I'd be interested to know the exact wording on your certificate because it almost certainly doesn't say that you can only use boats up to 10m in length, although you may be reading it as such!

On my ICC license it states,

For Use on the Following Pleasure Craft:

Power up to 10m Yes

Power 10m and over No

On my P.B. 2 certificate there is no mention of craft size.

But to obtain a ICC license a P.B.2 cert is the minimum requirement. I think.

Indeed but I think a commercially endorsed PB2 can actually skipper upto 24m (within the range limits imposed for the craft etc).
