I was always was against licences for years I did my level 2 years ago now and at least it gives you some safety tips on a basic level ,most things are covered for day boating hurts to say totally with you on this one
And the cost of a course is few hundred pounds,which you would get back on your insurance in no time.
A level 2 is better than nothing and now should be a legal requirement
