Yes, thanks chaps....
I was aware that life was easier with an outboard but even with my old boat, (twin o/b) there may have been a problem since the batteries and fuel intakes were in a 'cabin' Well a console anyway!
However, I'm sure outboard users will have no trouble but as you rightly said Richard, I have an inboard....
BUT.... as I said, they tell me that no boat needs a BSS cert if it is just visiting. You can get a Visitor Licence for a maximum of one month in any calendar year, or up to six 'one day tickets' per year. You just have to sign your life away and tell them it conforms to the scheme! The only problem is they expect these 'visitors' to enter by other waterways as a rule.... so it confuses them a bit when you launch by trailer!
Anyway, it'll do for my end of season de-salt later this year!
I am hoping for another couple of goes on the sea before then but people keep asking me to work! Can someone keep the weather good till I get a chance to enjoy it please
