Boarding the Yacht :
If you are boarding a yacht, whatever the size and type, your captain will need to make a request for Monitoring Time to be on board the Vessel and have some checks completed about the vessel to be approved. These checks include ensuring you have a thermometer on board. Monitoring does mean you can move around the islands however you should keep your contacts to a minimum.
