It is not as simple as that. The STCW Manila Amendment contains the rule that an administration may require foreign flagged vessels that operate out of a foreign port must comply with both, the flag state rules and the rules of the port state.

Several European Countries make excessive use of this rule.

Working in France

To update everyone
Our cabin RIB was coded SCV2 Cat 3 by Mecal
It has twin petrol engines.
We applied to MCA Ships register Part 1 and this went through.
OK there were a few answers to find but this was our first attempt

The RIB is currently flying a red ensign, working in France without issue.

Be encouraged

Outboard petrol engine boat no problem. Inboard petrol would need special approval From MCA.
I went alongside the carrier, I survived and didnt even get shot at!!!

Lots of classic Ribnet half truths in this thread.

The problem is the MCA dont like petrol boats for Cat 2 and above, ie when passengers will be sleeping on board.

No problem with inboard or outboard for lower catogories
