While the responses to the original question on the whole were correct I feel I should just clarify one thing.

The ship portable radio licence is ONLY required if the Hand-held is going to be used on another boat/s. The Ship Radio Licence covers both a fixed and handheld (and a RADAR as seen on some of the larger commercial cabined RIBS) on the boat in question.

Just done this...

I applied online for the SSR No. The Small Ships Register is effectively Part 3 of the UK shipping register (which includes Part 1 and 2 referred to earlier). I then applied (online) for the Radio Licence, covering my fixed DSC Radio and my hand-held (non-DSC) - for which I think you need your SSR No.

That arrived with the MMSI number - which I then programmed into the DSC set. Do it carefully - you can only do it once, and then I think the manufacturer has to reset it.

I found that you need certain bits of information, which means that you need to do it in a certain order - but appart from that it wasn't too difficult.

Cheers,

Dylan...

Thanks for the reply, Richard. I know about, and have, an ICC. It's the SSR. I was not sure about. Is its purpose, for a foreign nation, just to confirm the country of origin of the craft?

Hi Jeff,

My research this morning leads me to believe you are correct - the SSR simply confirms the home nation of the vessel.

How's your boat building coming on? You haven't posted any pics for a while!

Thanks Louise. The boat is coming on fine. I've a few more recent pics but I'll not hijack Bruce's thread.

I'm not sure how welcome they now are on Boatmad.

I think pics of boats (even RIBs) are OK - as long as you haven't painted a gigantic fairy on the side!!

Further to Louises reply...........
it would also seem to me, with the French authorities particularly in mind, that the SSR would appear to act as "proof of ownership" to them.
I lent my boat to a mate once who took it to France. First of all they demanded the SSR (which they can also checkout!), and then, when they found out my mate wasn't the owner, they freaked out, assuming the boat to have been nicked!
Anyway for the sake of 12 or 20 or whatever it would seem well worth it. Your baby is then on an internationally checkable database which may serve you well in the future. This is all on top, of course, of the right to call upon the assistance of HM Navy in the event of "trouble".

The SSR is needed if you intend to use your boat abroad and, as far as I know, your 12 covers you for as long as you have the boat.

The CG66 is free and I can't see a reason why anyone would not fill it in.
Interested to read all the postings on this thread as I am just getting my head around the rules and regs.

We bought the boat secondhand, and it had already been registered with the Small Ships Registry and has an SSR number (which I will now get some stickers for to display on the boat). However, the 12 fee only covers for 5 years as far as I can tell, and I had to pay again, to change the ownership details to our name.

The CG66 is a voluntary safety database which is held by the Coastguard and keeps as much info as you can given them about the boat, description and size infor, safety equipment on board, shore contact numbers and you can even give them an image of the boat to aid ID in am emergency.

On the subject of jubilee clips, we've got our RIBnet burgee fixed onto the A frame with a metal jubilee clip, like are used to hold pipes together on a car engine etc, and that seems to work fine.

Assuming we can fly a [red?] ensign, which side should we put the ensign and which side the ribnet burgee? Or does it matter

Hi Janet - it looks like they may have changed the rules in 2003. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
