Fuel would be the the 'logistic' that would be very high on my list, otherwise you might not make as far as Mr. 'over zealous'. Petrol is becoming a rare commodity on the waterfront these days.

A 70ltr capacity tank would to tight enough on a 50Nm trip should the sea kick up and transfering from cans whilst being chucked about is no fun.

If fuel capacity of the main tank is a concern and you suspect you'll be refuelling at sea, then think about rigging a changeover valve into the fuel line (before the primer bulb), with a second feed from a portable fuel tank(s), rather than spilling petrol from a jerry can all over your foot/crew.

OBVIOUSLY!! fuel IS a very high priority,which haveing been 'PRETTY ESSENCIAL' in my 30yrs pluss on the water,I would OBVIOUSLY make adiquate provision for.As I said -not too worried about the LOGISTICS,more interested in paperwork needed[which you so helpfully pointed out would need to be in order,but did'nt seem to have any knollege concerning]
Also I would very much like any tips on suitable campsites,ameinities,ect, on the French side.
Now, if you have any experiance or opinions on THESE I would be most gratefull to hear them.

If you have spent 30 yrs on the water, how come your 'knollege' is so limited? Do you have memory issues? Perhaps this would explain why you have the spelling skills of a 9yo.

'Jardons' come and go on this site, you have certainly grabbed the mantle with both hands.

Sounds like you need to get the boat out!and do some 'bobbing about' Chris!Commendible takeing on the completely voluntary,and obviously time consumeing post of Chief Of Spelling police though.
Maybe you missed your vocation.

Anyway to bring this one back on course ...

Small Ships Register is here https://mcanet.mcga.gov.uk/ssr/ssr/default.asp
Costs about 25 to register your craft

ICC (International Certificate of Competence) application form is here however you need to have completed as a minimum a Level 2 course (Tidal) http://www.rya.org.uk/assets/cruisin...ICC%20Form.pdf

Can anyone provide a definitive list of required 'paperwork' for the trip and any other bits you wouldn't think of on your home patch.

Should this include

-proof of ownership
-proof of sale/purchase
-proof of VAT paid
-insurance details
-Builders Cert/CE Plate
-VHF Cert
-ICC Cert
-SSR clearly marked
-Boat name and home port clearly marked
-Ensign
-Passport
etc, etc

Ssr

Just done SSR online. Part 3 is a piece of cake! Great to see a system working well.

Can anyone point us to somewhere to get a 'list of required paperwork' for visiting French France?

Biboa and the Flat Earth Society

I noticed that a RhIB club called Biboa are organising a 'Canter' to Cherbourg in May.
Does anyone know anything about this group?
Does anyone know if this is the best place to contact for a cross channel in company and can they provide a list of required 'paperwork'?

Maybe............ too many people think that they will fall off this flat earth at the Needles or Bembridge!

They are a group of boat owners that are massive fans of the Rocky movies. The main organiser, 'Sly' often posts on this site.
