Training

Hi chaps

After a conversation with a chap in Poole earlier this week I would be greatfull for your views?

My view as allways been Training for boat drivers should be compulsory? Like france, Spain etc

The chap I spoke too, suggested if everyone had a ticket to drive a boat they would all get big headed.

Are you trained? RYA? What Level? What do you think to th RYA course. Should it be compulsory?

Well I for one missed the thread!
One part tell me that licences and the like are good.
The other part of me tell me that we should not be bound ny too many rules in life.
The RULES devil always gets a boos when I see prats with no life jackets/kill cords/radio/flares or IDEA.

The NO RULES devil gets a boost when I see the opposite.

Trouble is the prats out number the others,

I suspect when we have finished with hunting/fishing and the country side, normal sensible people will be hammerd due to the prat like behaviour of week end boaters who have no concept of the cost of a rescue and the damage a prop can do when a boat goes out of control.

I say, shout at the prats, make them look the fools they are.

the poll was headed regulation for boating and at time of posting last reply was 14/9.
the original thread started off as boat registration and quickly turned into compulsory training question.
U still in wales jahno ??- now i'm definitely going to bed!!

Yes to training.....as the IRPCS is already applicale to all vessels on the high seas and in all waters.......blah blah blah....
So when an M notice comes out telling boaters and the industry that a boat of 45' in length must have safety gear and passage plans then no suprises there but there is outrage in the industry as 'NO ONE TOLD US'...... I work 4 months on 2 1/2 months off in the merchant navy...when I get back to sea I am expected to know all the revelant legislation information relating to my job as an Officer of the Watch.....The same notices are avaiable to all on the internet at the MCA website.... We have a hard copy onboard which I read when I return to sea to look for changes...
I also hold RYA rescue boat cerificate and when I get back from this ship hope to do my instructors course...
Yes there are idiots out there...yes we have car driving licences there are still boy racers, people with deteriorating eyesight, illegal drivers with no licences joy riders....The police do not catch that many because of under staffing and lack of resources.... Policing at sea will never work.... Not for a long time....unless every boat has a registraion beacon and can be tracked....But what about those who as in fast bikes just take their plates off if they know they are going to be bad...
Training is great but will only limit not stop accidents.... I did a 4 year cadetship to learn to command a watch on a ship....
The yachty going down the main channel at 4 nots infront of me and does not know I am there....May have no training....
The jetski that cuts across my bow....training doubtful...
Enjoying themselves..U bet!!!
Does enjoyment have to come with risk and danger....I think so that is why we do it...Adrenaline junkies...who here has been out when it is a little rough when maybe they shouldn't have...but had a great time...Me for one...
I have been in the Atlantic in a force 10....that is rough the ship was like a cork....If u have confidence in the boat and your own capabilities then why not.... Going out in dense fog doing 40 knots...crazy...
People do it though...
Training?Yes..
Compulsory... Yes...
Legislation... NO....
Won't happen though... one comes with the other!!!
Safety at sea....Nice idea!!!!
