Daft Question...

...but I can't find the answer anywhere else (I did look!!)

If I get my PB Level 2 commercially endorsed, what could I actually do with it?

I believe that it means 3 miles from the shore in daylight and good weather. What would that mean on a river, tidal or otherwise?

Cheers.

It actually states '3 miles from a Nominated Departure Point' (NDP), not 3 miles offshore, unless you go in a straight line out and back from the NDP.

Take a look at:

NDPs

Thanks for that Ian. Shame the RYA site isn't easier to navigate to get that info!!

Where can I find out who defines NDPs? Some documents seem to indicate that it is the Local Certifying Authority, others the MCA, but most just refer to them as if I already knew what they were!!

The Power Boat route seems to be...

RYA PB1
RYA PB2
RYA Intermediate (but not all centres seems to offer this)
RYA Advanced (for which you should have VHF + 1st Aid)

and then, I'm not sure, but I suppose RYA Ocean Master?

courses

Could do the motor cruising Coastal Skipper but you need some days on a motor cruiser to qualify just to do the course/exam I think.
As far as Powerboating goes, your Instructors ticket is a natural progression.

It's useful to do Dayskipper as, under the 'old' Advanced PB syllabus, you were recommended to have nav knowledge to Dayskipper level to be able to do the Advanced PB. Not sure if that's still the case - it may be that the Intermediate course gives you that now - can any PB Instructors advise?
