Tim,

Firstly, thanks for posting that it has just reminded me how fortunate I am not to be anywhere near the busy south coast!

Secondly, I don't think anyone has actually answered the question fully. As I understand it you only need MCA coded if you are operating commercially outside categorised waters. Most of the solent is Cat C waters - so you can operate there unless you are hiring the boat out or carrying passengers in which case local authority licensing would apply. Of course there are probably some other sort of licenses required for selling ice cream to the public?

However, why is noone else already doing it in your target area? I'm guessing that it would only be viable on the warmest/sunniest/busiest days - is that not when your 'RIB trips' are busiest too? i.e. will it get in the way rather than compliment your existing activities?

Hi Tim,

Local Authority Licence for the Solent. Eastleigh Borough Council department that issues the licences also deals with Environmental Health - should be able to sort out your food hygiene certs as well!

Will need a nice big alternator and a 12 volt fridge as no petrol inboard engines allowed on coded boats.

Duncan

As per the Blue, Yellow, Brown and NDP codes and MGN280 - unless an inboard petrol engined boat was operating before those codes came into practice.

Local Authority code (SASHMA) in the Solent is based on the Inland Code which is in turn based on the MGN280.

Petrol vapours from carbs etc etc.

umm, not sure about no petrol on board, you couldn't run a wing engine without it, in a fixed tank maybe?, they change the rules every week by the sounds of it.
thinking about it there has got to be more to it than that otherwise you couldn't code an outboard boat
