I'm a sport-diver, finally living close enough to the sea to make buying a boat worthwhile. A RIB looks like my best option, but never having owned a boat of any sort I have no idea what the rules are (although I have fallen off several)....
Can anyone fill me in on licencing rules for Sweden? I guess I'll be spending most of my time fairly close to shore at first. With short days approaching all too rapidly it won't be long before I'm out after dark - either accidentally or deliberately.
Also, before I commit myself to spending serious money I'd like to take a boat handling course whether or not there is a legal requirement. Any recommendations? I'll be on holiday in the North-East of England next week (arriving 04-Sep-00, departing 11-Sep-00). Sorry about the short notice. Thereafter I'm back in Karlskrona.
Any help/advice greatly appreciated.
