Displaying ships radio license on a RIB

This must be a common problem.. I've been thinking about how to display the ships radio license on my RIB. There is no screen or windowed bulkhead that I can mount the thing on. I could laminate it to stop it getting wet and just stick it to the console but there must be some other clever ideas out there. Has anyone found a waterproof holder that is through bolted so the license can't be removed for example?

(only a week before the free online license application system becomes live I believe!)

Hi Licence is now FREE and when existing ones are renewed no requirement to display a disc only have licence available for inspection. So just laminate the document.

Hope this helps

Mine always came with a free plastic holder like a tax disk holder. It was pretty waterproof but not totally on my SR4. I had it fixed on the left of the consol.
If you haven't got the plastic holder ask them for one.

Yes that definately helps thanks - can just laminate and store in the locker. I applied for new boat license in October and it was free (postal) but it's an annual one and still says it has to be displayed. I need to change some details anyway so I'll wait till after 1st Dec and do an online change request to get lifetime license.

Thanks!
Al.

When I got my new Licence recently, a letter accompanying it stated that I only needed to have a photocopy of the licence on board at all times - and that it did not necessarily need to be prominently displayed.

Have always used a motorbike tax disk holder to good effect - got one of those posh ones with 8 allen screws to hold it together and bolted to the A frame.

No link as it came from Ebay I think. It's similar to ones in Halfords that go for about £15 and made from some form of alloy,

What about something like this - ebay item 260056901483. Not cheap but should do the job (stainless).
