CG66 - is this for leisure craft only?

Just wondering whether small workboats or commercial operators are able to use this scheme. The MCA site seems to imply that this is primarily for leisure users, so would a working boat or commercial craft be accepted on this?

Over to Rib net...

cheers,
t

Thanks Paul.

I thought that this may be the case, but when I went to the MCA site it only really mentioned leisure users. I'll register our boat asap.

cheers,

Registering the Boat

The boat seems to need to be registered before you can CG66 it and the small ships register will only accept registration by a person (according to their webste) so how would you deal with a club dive boat which belongs to the club?

I dont find this the case, I have registered boats on CG66 and not on the SSR.

As an ex-coastguard, what they would say is almost certainly thus:-

"Please please please register on CG 66."

Its the main database that is immediately available to the likes of Solent, Dover, Portland CG etc. Plus it lets you include a photograph of your boat, and the safety equipment carried. Hence if you are in trouble - within a couple of seconds they can have a good understanding of your boat and its safety equipment".

Didn't think it mattered what type of user you were. My understanding was that CG66 was a way of the coastguard having details of your boat in case of incident (so they know what they're dealing with).

SSR Not Needed

Thanks for your helpful comments, after following up I now find that the SSR is optional when registering CG66.

However, an individual name must be given to access the CG66 system, so the "account" will be under that name rather than the club which owns the boat.

No of persons on board

Hi
For the cg66 they ask for the number of persons on board. Do you put the maximum number rated under the mca coding for your boat ie 8 person, even if generally you are say 4? Either way you could mislead - and it does'nt seem the sort of thing you would update for each journey/weekend trip.

Hi Paul,
I would, and have done, gone for the maximum number carried stated by either the licence or by the normal maximum that you would carry. AFAIK the number of persons is used as a guide as to the maximum number that the CG could be looking for if something were to happen.
Under your coding requirements (and good practise) someone ashore should be informed of the numbers carried on each trip-we usually call the CG with this info prior to departure as part of the Passage Plan.

You could give your local CG sector office a call as I have always found ours to be very helpful in such queiries.
Cheers,
Andy
