Hi Salty

The best would be to contact the NSRI in Durban and speak to Mr Dave Sivright

he is one of the skippers exameners in Natal

Hey Salty,

 

The list of requirements is lengthy. Why not join a club. I belong to Bobbies(opposite grunter gulley). The fees are 450 for the first year thereafter 250 a year. You have 24Hr access. Right for starters.....
  1. you allowed one person per meter square on deck
  2. if you buoyancy, you need to get a buoyancy certificate.
  3. life jackets, capsize bottle, extinguisher, first aid kit, horn, metal bailing bucket, oars, you light must be 1,8m above deck, the list goes on and on.
Your best bet is to be affiliated to a club. they will help you.

 

Good Luck

You have to be a member of a club to fish in Durban Bay,They are closing down the public slip .If you go on to http://www.safeboating.co.za you will get a list of safety equipment .The club you join will also give you the safety requirements and will have a safety officer to inspect.You will have to do a COC to fish the bay and Alan Postumus does the course for R40 and 3 nites at Fynnlands.

Be aware the cops are full up and checking boats all the time.They are getting 3 more boats for Durban

Harry

I`m also a member of Bobbies,you dont catch many fish (ha ha)coz I`m comp master and I haven`t wieghed any of your fish this year.

Hey Brett,

True you haven't been weighing any of my fish. Work and studies have me very occupied bro. But i have been getting great fish in the bay, unfortunately cannot fish most competitions because of busy schedule.

Well Salty there you have it. Bobbies is the place to be......

 

Thight Lines Hunters..................Until next we meet Brett, the comp is on bro.......

Please excuse my ignorance gents but i would appreciate some advice...

I've got my skippers, do i still require a COC to fish in the bay? Are there any other requirements i should be aware of?

What are the requirements if i wish to fish at night?

Thanks

Again I must reiterate that the calculation is Form_F11 is inconsistent with SAMSA's requirements contained in the following document (as posted by another sealiner quite recently. The content is basically in-line, but the actual calculation does not amount to either the 30% or 60% rule.

I also find that some boatbuilders / boatshops are not 100% ontop of the SAMSA requirements. I fell prey that that situation myself....specifically that for Cat R, the weight of the crew is NOT included.

Just for the record :

On Tuesday, 4th January, 2011, the Memorial Service for the late NSRI Durban Regional Manager Dave Sievwright will be held at Frere Road Presbyterian Church, 339 Esther Roberts Road, Durban, at 11h00.

Dave passed away from a heart attack on boxing day playing golf at Shelly Beach while on holiday.

The scattering of Dave’s ashes will take place the same day from aboard NSRI Durban’s Rescue Craft Eikos Rescuer II.
