Cobra Ribs recommend that all prospective purchasers and existing owners alike gain the minimum qualification of RYA Power Boating Level 2 before undertaking any pleasure boating in their Rib.
These courses can be arranged either with the use of your own craft or in an approved RYA school craft.
If you intend to make use of your Rib abroad then you will be required to carry the International Certificate of Competence. Again, here at Cobra Ribs we can advise on how to achieve this through RYA approved schools.
We further recommend that existing owners and new owners seek advice on individual boat handling characteristics and are cautious to act within their personal experience and limitations. Cobra Ribs recommend that all its customers arrange to attend a Cobra test day, where they can learn to understand better the handling characteristics of their craft. This service is provided within the cost of the boat sale and can be combined with an on the water test and handover.
