b) the driver of the tow vehicle is a member of the boat crew - i.e. the driver's main activity is not the actual driving.
This is under the derogation from the EU driver's hours rules previously cited in this thread.
We may however fall under the domestic driver's rules but only if we are driving for more than 4 hours in a day (unlikey if we're limited to 50km).
Crikey-they took their time with that!
Useful letter to have though.
