Power boating

Power boating uses exciting, awesome power machines that require skill and knowledge to master, but give the opportunity for anyone to try. Different types of power boat include wet bikes, rigid inflatables (RIBs) and power cruisers. Power boats can also be used as work boats or rescue boats, but all of them, from the solid, dependable diesel open boats to rubber dinghies with outboards, require skill and knowledge and can be great fun.

How to run/provide power boating

There are 3 ways of running Power boating in Scouting. These are:

  1. Scout-led activity - running power boating yourself or using someone else in Scouting

  2. Externally-led activity - running power boating using an external provider

  3. Activity for adult groups - running power boating for a group entirely of adults
