YES to some form of maintenance training. Just basic stuff like trailer. Filters. Plugs. Steering. Greasing. Etc.
I shouldn't say this really as its my job. Who wants to do a course!
if your in Scotland or abouts - RYA Scotland are running a basic engine session at Big Weekend in Largs.

The boat safty scheme is compulsary on the inland waterways it has to be passed every four years to enable you to get a licence and insurance.i build new narrowboats for a living and they have to pass this test from day one.no three years grace like you car mot.the test is mostly concerned with gas insterlation and venterlation.o and warning lables its mostly aload of crap, a 200 piece of paper from someone who is not liable for anything once he leaves the boat.more jobs for the boys.it dosnt matter what you do you'll always get some idiot trying to kill themselves.
