Gaining RIB driving experience

Hi,

I recently completed the RYA level 2 powerboat certificate with coastal endorsement. As I don't own a RIB can anyone suggest how I get driving experience other than taking bespoke training? Are there any groups or organisations I can join on a voluntary basis with my limited experience?

Thanks

Volunteer for a boating club with the requirement that you would be able to be a Safety Boat Driver in the future - they may require you to get a qualification for this.
