I had a hell of a job with a contract hire vehicle some time ago. Don't know if it's relevant but it's a problem for loads of people.
Off topic I know but:-

It makes me wonder if there should be a different style/colour for a trailer plate e.g. half white half yellow so cameras etc can still see them. Then you could just walk in and buy any number plate you required. Make it illegal to place on a car.

Who responsible for that Dept of Transport?

Now I know more than I did - not especially sure if the world is a better place though Thx for help.

Wot size red ensign looks cool on a 6.5M rib? And where do you put it? And do you 'furl' it - getting with the jargon here! If so, how?

Our red ensign is about 2' x 1.5'. It's attached by plastic 'jubilee clip' type things - can't remember proper name - which secure the cords to the A-frame. I think a proper little flag pole looks better though! We just wrap ours round the A-frame tube and tie cord around it - probably not the proper way but that's what we do.

I may be wrong but I believe Louise is referring to cable ties!

Tie wraps. (or as Nick correctly guessed, "cable ties")

JW - If, say, a South coast based UK RIB was to cruise over to the French coast, then a UK SSR registration, an ICC and insurance certificate are the basic documents needed to comply with French regulations. Given that an ICC is quite straigtforward to obtain in the UK, this seems preferable to going through the French certification method, which is compulsory for our European neighbours.

if going foreign , you must display a courtesy flag of the country you are visiting. red duster flown between sunrise and sunset indicates the ships master is on board thats all i can remember re the flags from navy college
oh and dipping the flag as you pass a British war ship realy pees them off

Especially submarines (on the surface). They always seem to be looking the other way when you do.
We got them once. Very funny to see a hatch open and some poor s*d running down the hull to respond.
