.
Suspect thats not exactly the most relevant field. Anyway VGT doesn't refer to the mass of the boat. It really refers to carrying capacity... Not the CE marked quantity but how many tonnes of cargo could the hull transport. Wouldn't worry about what you fill in here.

so how do you obtain one ?
Guess you didn't tick the DSC VHF button. You should be able to modify the licence on-line on their website and it should give you a PDF version there and then AFAIK.

Mmm, I will just put 1.5 then.
8 (m) * 2.5 (m) * 0.75 (m) [draft] / 4 = 3.75...

those numbers are obviously guesses but I doubt any one of them is massively out...

Ah, that makes sense now. Why didnt they just say the "carrying capacity" then, instead of gross tonnage.

Anyway - Ive got the number now, so Im a happy boater.

Your ships licence is kept "on line" in the ether. You can modify it at will & add or remove equipment. Your radar, PLB, VHF, AIS transponder, Active radar reflector (SART) should all be listed on your licence. You can print it out as you need to or when you modify it. I have mine printed, laminated & kept onboard.

Recently I added a DSC handheld to my transportable licence. The newly created mmsi was on the licence when I downloaded the PDF licence.
