Yea - yea - yea...

I've heard bad things about that Jono bloke. All he likes doing is collecting fast expensive toys, cruising around the bay in 50k plus "hard shells" waving at us lesser mortals as we take the spray over the sponsons !

Good idea, I would like to do a course. Lets talk and get us booked in. If I bring a few others do I get mine FOC ? Seriously....I'll catch you this weekend an get some dates from you. G..

On my course I was required to supply a passport sized photo (of me!) which then got attached to my license. (or was it 2 photos??)

Hi All,
You require by Law two Licences! One for the boat or handheld to allow it to be carried on board 20.00 & 15.00 per year and one to operate it Currently 20.00 for life. You need to do a SRC course which is one day. We are running such a course on 22 Nov Try [URL=http://www.ashbypower.fsnet.co.uk ] for more details.

Don't be caught!! it can prove V expensive.

Have fun boating.

Be Safe

Brian

???

Only 1 passport photo needed, i did my restricted license when i was 13 had to keep that picture with me til last year when i did my dsc update.


MeMe, Going back to that Jono bloke, he tells me he is up for doing Winter Specials , aparently needs to keep the money coming in through the winter to put the fuel in the toys.

He also says it makes a great picture looking down on your rib from a gyn palace, in fact when he passed you at the weekend his customer/student commented what a great little tender you have got.

This is how it works

Hi ALL - THIS IS HOW IT WORKS

1/ You need a Operator license. Simply get your self on a Short Range Certificate (VHF Radio) course.

2/ You then need -

a/ ShipsRadio Licence - Call Sign would be the boats name and you would also have another call sign ed gh1234 in case of two boats in the same area with the same name involved in the same situation (unlikely i know), if you have a DSC you would also have a MMSI number.

or

b/ Portable Ships Radio License - Call Sign would then be whatever boats name you are on and you would also have another call sign ed gh1234 for the same reason as above.

You may have a ships radio license for your boat but only have a handheld on board, which is fine if you only use it on that boat.

Hope this helps!
