 I found Carl quite good at Skippers Ticket Training WA. Loated at hillarys, firm but fair and offers additional assistance after you purchase a boat.

You need to read the book, he then delivers a training nsession, followed by an exam followed by a practicle assessment.

Avoid Perth Boat School, the owner is an arrogant cocksmoker.

I used My Deckie in Hillarys and Paul was great.

Whitfords sea rescue don't do it anymore

Wed, 2018-11-07 11:24

 We don't do them anymore.

Suggest when you do enquire you ask if they actually leave the marina and take you out to the open ocean.

When on duty we watch the various boat schools and they don't even leave the Hillarys Marina. They do a couple of man overboard test, get you to bring the boat along side a jetty and that's it.

Very poor in my opinion.

 No agreed, or your tickets

 No agreed, or your tickets would be a grand each and people may even fail .

Always been about basic colregs, operating skills, some etiquite and thats about it.
Ive never done it though I must admit.

Heading outside the harbour is great, but how long for and what are you going to learn on a glassy day that doesnt involve a week of tearing around.

"people may even fail"

Spot on there Rob and the ticket is likely more to do with govt regulation rather than safety but in saying that some basic safety does have to be learnt as part of the ticket not that you'd know on the Swan River on a public holiday 

I was personally left wanting after the ticket and thought that the ticket should at least cover launching and retrieving, basic trim operation (hard to do in a harbour and you do learn this one quick), flare operation and EBIRP testing.

Everytime I read a case of a fatality or a missing at sea event it seems to predominantly involve a skipper/crew over the age of 50.

No doubt Hezzy, just a cheeky response to walloped but he is onto something re boat owners in the 'olden days'.

I'd take a stab that prior to the last 20 years a lot of boat owners would have grown up around boats and gained experience before purchasing their own boat and in recent times there's been an influx of boat owners completely new to boating so a basic level of competency was introduced.
