RIB Charter Exclusion for Northern Ireland
With no new boat yet, I am hiring a RIB on West Coast of Scotland for 1 week in the summer.
On receiveing the hire contract I was amazed to find the following within the Permitted Cruising Area section.
'Inland coastal waters of UK Excluding Northern Ireland in accordance with MCA coding parameters'.
With NI one of the nicest crusing areas and within sensible distance what is the problem? Perhaps this exclusion is wholly out of date now - given the now peacefull situation.
Is it the MCA excluding this or the hirer?
Should I negotiate this section out with the charter company?
I would be interested what the Northern Ireland Tourest Board would make of this.
