Hope all goes well with the prep and exam.
I can definitely confirm there is a route from OOW Unlimited. The MCA want you to do at least 3 months time on workboats. Sea time from bigger vessels doesn't count. The evidence of your sea time doesn't have to be in the form of testimonials as in Merchant Navy tickets. Instead, they just want a letter from your company confirming that you have the workboat sea time.
The application is MSF 4343 which is actually for Yacht tickets but has a section for the Master 200gt Code vessels.
Hope that helps.
