Unless I missed it where abouts are you actually based? There are a range of independent lifeboats, lifeguard clubs and lifesaving teams that would welcome some one with your range of skills.

They all provide safety and or rescue to open water areas, events or shows.

Just run this "spare time" thing past me again. You could always buy a RIB & spend your "off duty" time having a blast, instead of sitting around waiting for the phone to ring

IMO, you should stick with the RNLI and buy yourself a boat for fun days. You can't turn a pound doing safety or rescue without going Coded, so why bother if you're already doing it in top class free boats???

As you have lots of experience why not try tapping up a couple of RYA trainers? I know one who does a lot of safety boat work (escort for round britain and cross irish sea trips etc) They always need crew and you could swap time spent as crew/assistant for some training and probably work your way up to being an instructor. They have all the gear but often struggle for bodies especially when they do the Power boat instructor course as they need "dummy pupils" advantage is they have the gear the boat and the insurance....

Hi, I don't know if anyone is interested but I have a RIB available which was used by the merchant navy as their rescue boat. It's a 6m Novamarine with Yamaha V4 100. 2 Stroke.
Great rescue boat
