Commercial use on Inland waterways

Hi guys

I've been asked to supply a RIB for use at an RYA sail training session on an inland waterway this weekend. My understanding is that the boat will not need to be coded.

Can anybody confirm either way?

Chris

Correct, but the principal of the RYA school will need to satisfy himself that the boat is up to RYA standards

Just thinking but is the same true if it is not an RYA operation as well?

Surely they don't have a remit that covers inland lakes???

Would that not be something which the local authority deal with?

I mean the one I have been asked to do the work on is a man made reservoir owned by the local water authority.

The Inland Waters Small Passenger Boat Code is a best practice guide for vessels carrying no more than 12 passengers which do not go to sea. This includes trip boats, hotel boats and water taxis operating in harbour areas and estuaries (which are categorised waters), as well as lakes, rivers and canals.
From the MCA website.http://www.mcga.gov.uk/c4mca/mcga-gu...htm?printout=1
If you are under the RYA flag then as i said it is up to the principal to confirm all boats at his/her school are up to standard.
If you are working, see above, not at sea then go to the MCA.

Regards
SM

inland waterways small passenger boat code.

the above code was launched in 2004 it states clearly that it is not intended to cover vessels operating as part of rya recognised training establishments.

it is theoretically voluntary but if any operator decided to skip part of the code reccomendations and then there was a failure/accident it is likley they would need to defend the non compliance.

the mca Will have authority in this area 2006 summer. when this code ceases to be voluntary
at present it is aimed at workboats and passenger boats.

You need to satisfy the RYA centre.

inland waterways done by the mca.

at present the position is that the mca wrote the code after consultation with all relevant authorities. They do not inforce it but can give you loads of info. simply ask for the inland waterways team. Julie carlton is the top lady I think but there are laods of staff to help.
At the moment they state clearly that they RECCOMEND compliance with the code which is basically common sense.

I've just had a look at this and it pretty well written for once!

All common sense and does not really have any surprises. As ever there is the silly requirement of a liferaft on a RIB! One day I will find somewhere to put it thats not in the way!!!
