I recently had a visit from the coastguard agency and an inspection. This was our first ever impromtu inspection and he issued an inspection sheet for each boat with a pass on each boat which i was rather delighted about.
I was chatting to him about boats that don't go to sea and he was saying that there is a new scheme under way for cat A B and C waters.
It is a fit for purpose scheme has anyone heard anything about it?
They are looking the current categories and reviewing the seaward/catergory limits. As I understand they are also looking at some form of "coding" for small vessels that only operate in catergorised waters to try and improve the standard of the vessels, as at the moment there is really none.
