Looking for help to brush up mooring skills

I own a 6m day boat which I keep in East Cowes Marina.

I've had it 6 years and did the Powerboat Level 2 course without a hitch 6 years ago, but as I've hardly used the boat since, I could be much better at mooring up, leaving and close quarter manoeuvres. Curse those with bow-thrusters!

So I am looking to hire a PB2 instructor, (even someone who is retired) for several 30-60min sessions (4,5?), either crammed into a couple of weeks or once week, I don't mind. Whatever is most convenient for you and how the weather pans out. I work from home in Cowes so am very flexible with time of day and day of the week.

Is there anyone out there who can help/is interested?

Regards,

Rob

I would do it, but my schedule of when I am working in the Solent would almost certainly not match up with yours

Tim Griffin is based in East Cowes and he is a brilliant instructor, he would be my second choice

Thanks for replying Obsidian. I work from home so am very flexible. Up to you. Let me know when your are in the Solent and we take it from there? What would you charge per hour?

If you're based in Cowes, I'd recommend Hugo @ Salty Sailing. He's based in Shephards Marina. He's really good - both a good bloke and a good instructor. I did my coastal skipper with him a few weeks back - he does PB2 and RIB stuff too. Happy to put you in touch if you'd like.
