(price dependent of course!).

Just something to think about - if you rent it to me in the summer and I do something stupid (say trash a gearbox on a rock) the week before either you are about to rent it to someone else or before you are due to resume work on commercial projects can you get an alternative boat.

No. That is one of the things that might put me off the idea of renting it out. Skippering might be the "safer" option but it would put the price up and could reduce the interest. The holiday thing is an idea but I really don't have the funding to have "spare" boats so it might not be realistic.

It may be possible to insure against that risk - I don't know? Are there other boats around that you could charter in, if the need arose? Could you charter a UK boat if disaster struck?

Insurance would cover the damage but i'm not sure the following client would be happy with the idea.

Charter a UK boat why not but it would have to be MCA coded I would imagine and i'm not sure sub chartering would be allowed.

Anyway. I'm a long way from getting there for the moment. The course that would suit me most starts in March 'til end of June 2010.

One thing i'd forgot to tell. I would have a status where if I didn't have any income I wouldn't have to pay any taxes. In France that is quite new and very welcome .

Oh well - should have dug out the paper work and checked the term I suppose.

There is no blue light license in existence, at all, whatsoever. Not even for vehicles - each vehicle has to be able to demonstrate suitability of purpose to claim the right to use, which has recently been the downfall of a lot of the "vanity" private ambulance companies.

And before the OP starts claiming any different, perhaps he would like to discuss this with me on the hard shoulder during my working hours
Strange as Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue issue a license as approved by the DOT. At last thats what they tell us when they hand it over after the 8 days course. This allows us to drive both front line fire engines and the EMT vans - as we provide a medical team on call to Western Ambulance Service.

Perhaps if you're down this way we'll discuss it as we put you back together
