Ice-cream boat question

This is a serious question (I am sober). Would an ice-cream boat need to be coded (if operating in the Solent)?

Tim, one already runs out of Hamble Point and I guess you would also need to consider a food licence? Also what about the "ice cream van/boat" tune- Captain Pugwash??

I used to own and run a little ice-cream business which I set up when I was at school, in Norfolk. Quite like the idea of an ice-cream boat in Portsmouth Harbour
PS. The photo is of me before the surgery

Going more serious back to coding- here are some of the regs which would support coding as receiving money if I read it correctly

- “small commercial vessel” means a small vessel which is not a pleasure vessel;

- In these Regulations, “pleasure vessel” means—

(a) a vessel which—
(i) is owned by an individual, and
(ii) at the time it is being used —
(aa) is used only for the sport or pleasure of the owner or the immediate family or friends of the owner, and
(bb) is on a free voyage or excursion;

(b) a vessel which—
(i) is owned by a body corporate, and
(ii) at the time it is being used—
(aa) is used only for the sport or pleasure of the employees or officers of the body corporate, or their immediate family or friends, and
(bb) is on a free voyage or excursion;

(c) a vessel —
(i) which is owned by or on behalf of the members of a members’ club,
(ii) which, at the time it is being used, is used only for the sport or pleasure of a member of that club, his immediate family or his guest, and
(iii) for the use of which no payment is made other than a payment into the funds of the members club which funds are applied for the general use of the members club.

(2) In this regulation, “free voyage or excursion” means a voyage or excursion in respect of which—
(a) no money is paid and no goods or services are provided to any person other than the owner of the vessel engaged in the voyage or excursion; and
(b) the owner of a vessel engaged in the voyage or excursion does not receive–
(i) money for, or in connection with, the operation of the vessel or the carrying of any person in the vessel other than as a contribution to the direct expenses of the operation of the vessel incurred during the voyage or excursion, or
(ii) goods or services other than goods or services which are used or provided on the vessel during the voyage or excursion.

Have these on the river at Christchurch - great when on the mooring in the summer or at anchor. Also out during the Bournemouth airshow........

No way either are coded ! No sign of any safety gear etc with a small Honda genny running a freezer ......... but great for a corneto however.........
