We are doing our Sea Survival on the 29th April hopefully.
We have been told that you just need navigation skills to Day Skipper Theory standard, but we intend to do our Powerboat Advanced and our Day Skipper Theory this year.
The other thing is, with our current qualifications plus the Sea Survival course, we can operate commercially from our home port on a coded vessel up to 3 miles from our home port.
I hope this helps a little!
Can you get a cat 2 if you are colour blind?Same to you mate! It is a dream job for me.
I really want a career at sea and have done for a long time now.
Got rejected when I applied to go into the Merchant Navy as I am colour blind. Going to try to pass my lantern test, but really I am putting off the inevitable.
thanks alot ,cheersML5 medical form
explanations as to what is acceptable for various conditions on there
cheers for thatThe heart bit may be a problem and it is worth exploring that first. I had stents put in in 2000 and was told there was no way I could have a certificate. After I appealed the doctor then relented and gave me an examination and granted me a restricted certificate with annual review but on the second review he lifted all the restrictions.
The restrictions he initially imposed would not have affected me running a charter boat as they related to distance from port and length of vessel.
For the sake of a phone call I would give an approved doctor a ring first!
