Starting a rescue/safety boat

I agree that 100 a day for a small SIB would be taking the piss.

Okay as I said I'd offer the services for free. But would a donation link on the website for the services be acceptable?

No its reward. If they do it with no prompting whatsoever then you might get away with it but its a very dangerous line your walking.

It wouldn't be for reward it would go towards fuel and to maintain the boat and vehicle. Also to keep equipment in good nick like a defibrillator and fit aid stretcher ect.

You can charge for fair wear and tear and fuel, also any costs involved and transporting the boat to the event. Just keep receipts to support your claims if needed.
You will also need to ensure that you have a suitable insurance policy and get it written into the policy that you will use the boat for voluntary support and safety.

So for sailing club events its common to get your tank filled up for you. So you don't need to claim for fuel. They may put more in than you came with... But no money changes hands...

Some may pay travel costs or fuel although most are parents who were coming anyway...

Setting up your own charity... ...lot of hassle. Who will donate? The event organiser? What's the advantage of them donating rather than covering costs? Why will general public donate ? Why would someone rescued donate they assume you are covered by event entry...

How sure are you you want to do this? It can be very boring. Lots of waiting around. Working to other peoples timetables and instructions.

On a minging day you'll wish you were at home. On a perfect rib day you'll wish you aren't sat at tick over...

If you present yourself as a charity doing rescue and an event 'employs' you do they some you are taking responsibility for safety more than if 'bobby with the rib' is doing it... So when something goes wrong will they point the finder at charity...

Do you have RYA safety boat cert? First aid (in date)? VHF.
Do you have crew?
