“PB Level 2 Course”

Written on: 16/03/2013

As an experienced sailor (YM, ICC) with own boat, looking to purchase a RIB, decided to take the PB2 course last weekend.
As I searched the web Solent Boat training caught my eye as it was well organised and one left well informed about what they did.
Booked it on line, Matt& Sean followed it up with email & phone - great communication.
1. The training RIB (Ribcraft 5.8m) had all the safety features you would expect from a RYA training boat, eg. Liferaft, Grab bag etc. It featured a nice strong A frame with Nav lights and comms + GPS. Metal cleat for anchoring at the bow, Extra protection for the tubes at relevant points. Nice smooth 140 HP, 3 cyl Suzuki engine (only one comment: the throttle needs adjusting - engagement is not smooth in either direction). Stable jockey seats all round. Non slip deck coating providing additional safety.
2. The course content (both theory & practical) was delivered very well, Sean has a nice, gentle way of involving the student in a constructive discussion as he is instructing. This made the weekend a real pleasure, despite real fresh conditions on the second day (NE'lies that preceeded the sleet & snow).
3. I will be dealing with Sean & Matt again, bare boat chartering their RIBS and possibly doing an Advanced course later in the season.
