Agreed, I was just concerned that a complete novice was going to go to sea without any training and I believe that Jono has a special offer on at the moment. I didn't want to tell Grandmaster to go to Jono at the risk of pissing off the othe trainers on this site whom I like and respect. So I thought of a way around it

My outright reccomendation for a trainer would be Paul Glatzel but he's a lot further away and more expensive

Can I have some red marks please for trying to be politicaly correct.
Cheers Stuart

You will get your callsign when you register your boat or handheld vhf with www.radiolicencecentre.co.uk

Don't think anyone's mentioned a GPS before, but you should invest in one. No point calling for help if you can't give a position. Hand helds are pretty cheap now, 100 mark and you can get waterproof baggies for them.

Grandmaster - Alternatively you could support the Charity Auction! There is a PB2 course on there - from the very modest Rogue Wave not trying to sell his own courses (bit of a run down to the Solent but you could make a weekend of it) or if you just want to get a bit more time behind the wheel to start with the driving experience down in Abersoch isn't too far for you ?

Cheers

Mike

The call sign goes with boat, not yourself or the radio.

You register a radio or radios for to vessel.
You can register a hand held for use on more than one boat. In this case you will not get a call sign, you would use the call sign for the boat you were on at the time.
In practice you tend to use the boat name when calling and not the call sign, unless there is a distress situation, and even then it is not mandatory.
Registration is 12 p.a for a fixed set and you are issued with a "tax disk" to display on the boat.
I understand there is a 4000 (max) fine for having an unregistered radio.

Below are 2 articles that may be worth reading.

http://www.ribmagazine.com/articles/...stbuylater.htm

http://www.ribmagazine.com/articles/...secondhand.htm

I would definitely reccommend going to Ribex as Richard B said. You will pick up a lot of information on whats available and there will be great deals going on lifejackets, boats, electronics, etc. We bought our boat through the London Boat Show and got quite a hefty discount.

Anyway good luck buying a RIB. You've already done the best thing possible by joining the forum.
