Who has to have an RST?

According to the Dept of Transport the following stipulations define those that are required to have an RST.
A person must have a RST if:

He or she is the person in charge of an RST vessel.

The vessel is being operated in the water.

An RST vessel is any boat that is:

Registered with the Department of Transport, or required to be registered.

Used for recreational purposes.

Powered by an engine with more than 6hp (4.5 KW).

Only the person-in-charge of the boat (the ‘skipper’) needs to have an RST, but he or she must have it with them the entire time the boat is in operation. The skipper is responsible for what happens on the boat during the voyage, but this doesn’t mean that he or she must be at the wheel the whole time.
