Highway Code for the.......

..sea. Does one exist. I'm after a handy booklet that can be kept aboard and referred to when needed. I've done my 1&2 along with my Intermediate and of course have my notes and memories from those however, is there anything else the budding RIBster can use as a guide ?

If you haven't got it already, I'd recommend the new rya G13 powerboat handbook:


Lots of stuff in there about regulations and the such like. More than enough for the light coastal user as a starting point.

I would have thought the International Regulations for the Prevention of collisions at Sea would be the document.

Graeme, a couple of publications we find useful are 'The Seaway Code' and 'The RNLI Handbook', available from their online shop. HTH

P.S. We've got the books recommended by Boatbuoy and Jelly too - they're all good!

Thanks guys........

.......With that advice I've just come off the phone from GBSailing having placed my order for the Seaway Guide at 4.99. If this doesn't do the trick I'll try the RNLI one. Cheers.

If you have done the level 1,2 and intermediate you should be familiar with the col regs. However you can buy cokpit companions cheaply which are very useful. Also if you need to refresh yourslef on them then have a look at the sea saftey section on the RNLI website as a very good program on their you can play with.

Who on earth did you do your level 1&2 with that did not point you in the right direction of the rules?
Surely this is fundamental stuff - ie how not to crash into someone?

I would ask yo uto kindly.......

......read my post in more detail or perhaps with a little less venom in your blood rather than jumping to the conclussion that I am a complete tosser (I think this word is allowed).

I have been driving a car for - god, feckin years - and like all men, I'm feckin brilliant at it, however I don't profess to know or for that matter recall every single feckin detail regarding the highway code - do you Searider ?

Therefore, because my memory aint as good as yours obviously is, I thought is a damn good idea to have the "highway code" avalible for reference when the need for clarity arises.

Some people obviously think they know it all mate

No, not at all and a very valid query. Having a little book covering pilotage and bouyage may just prevent someone from going East past the Brambles cardinal at 30 knots on a low water spring tide.
