I have learnt lots from all the courses & the more courses you do the more you find you need to know.

Just done the Day Skipper Theory (4 days in a classroom) & thought it was a great course - if you like that sort of thing.

The PB Advanced was just as fun & was 2 days driving a rib.

I liked them all.

best course/courses

thanks to all who replied
its encouraging to know that the RYA'S ethos of education not legislation is fimly in place with those who replied,
most if not all are advanced powerboaters with dayskipper theory
some very well qualified safe powerboaters are out there.
with regard to the theory for the dayskipper, yes it is biased towards sailing how ever the theory is the same for both,better to do the course through a powerboat/motor cruising school as they will throw in the extras for powerboaters eg 6 min rule for high speed
boat navigation.
