Tender Coding

If I operate a coded seagoing boat which is on a swinging mooring do I need to code the tender to take out the fair paying passengers to the 'mother ship' from say the beach or a pier?

If so can anyone point me in the right direction of the MCA reg for it?

Ta.

Brilliant - I like it!!! Just imagine carrying a liferaft and all the other gear!!!

Very valid point though - bloke in Swansea takes people across to his 10m RIB in a 3m tender - 6 at a time!!!

I believe that you do need to code it.

I'm looking at doing something similar next summer - but if you look at the inland wterways coding on the MCA website, http://www.mcga.gov.uk/c4mca/mcga-gu...qs_iw_code.htm, annex 5 gives guidelines for beachcraft - which sounds like it would cover these sort of activities to get passengers out to the 'big' boat. It also seems to be quite a sensible way forward - not too OTT.

Cheers,

Dylan...

Can anyone confirm the above? I've got a charter job this weekend which we're going to need to use a tender for ideally but am still unsure on the rules and regs.

I'd speak to the MCA to confirm it.

A local fisherman wanted to use a tender (an 18 foot Cheverton workboat) to get passengers out to his boat at low tide - and he was told by the harbourmaster (backed up, I believe, by the MCA) that it had to be coded.

I think Matt took a sensible line when he used Distant Rumble for a film. There was no way a 29 foot twin petrol engined hardboat was going to get coded so they hired a coded vessel to follow her just out of shot. Seems everyone was happy with that option. Give Mark a ring at the MCA he posts on here occasionally and seems to be in the right position to make decisions. He put an IOW council back in there box recently when they started making there own rules.

Would those be decisions regarding liferafts or rather lack of them on local area coded vessels?

Think it was more to do with the two 7.4 litre inboard petrol engines.
