Spain sounds like fun right now but jeesh for not liking vessel titles and registrations you all sure do like your paperwork.

In this state we only just recently have begun phasing in operator education requirements. But we've always had to title and register powerboats with greater the 9.9hp or bigger the 16ft. So thieves steal small outboards but rarely steal whole boats as they are not too hard to track. Lots of idiots driving ever which way despite the education requirements.

Thanks for the pointers, it's appreciated.

After reading your posts and researching further I think I need to get my ICC. To get this I need the RYA 2 Powerboating course (less than 10m) and the RYA 2 Coastal course. Once I've completed and passed the courses I can apply for my ICC.

Just need to find somewhere near Manchester now that I can do them.

Thanks again. :-)

Check out the following link as it describes how to obtain an ICC

How to apply for an ICC | The ICC and Proof of Competence Abroad | Boating Abroad | Information & Advice | RYA

You will see that if you have not passed an RYA practical course then if you are an experienced Skipper you can also qualify for the ICC by successfully completing an assessment of your competence through a RYA Recognised Training Centre or an affiliated club authorised to carry out the assessment, rather than having to attend a full RYA training course.

Thanks Ribochet, that's wonderful.

It's probably been 10 years since I took any kind of course and that was on Winderemere in a 17 foot Bayliner. Although that's the only course I've taken I've got 5 or 6 years experience taking the Bayliner to France a couple of times a year plus going to Conway and Windermere. Over the past couple of years we've had a 4.7m SIB which we've taken to France and Spain. Hopefully that will be enough experience (with a bit of swotting up) to get the ICC.

Cheers. :-)

No probs

Another alternative given your experience may be to do your RYA Powerboat Level 2 by Direct Assessment and use it to get your ICC - talk to the Principal/Chief Powerboat Instuctor of the centre you choose.

The following link will help you find a centre close to you

Find A Training Centre | Learning | Courses & Training | RYA

Good luck

Hi from Spain.

A brief for inflatables:

No title needed below 15hp (less than 11.03 kW) and less than 4 meters.
Beyond that, authorization needed.
Because of cortesy on international laws, non-official (I mean, nonmandatory in Britain) RYA title should be enough.

Always: insurance, boat registered.

Security equipment:
National flag on stern.
PFD 100 newtons CE certified (1 per person, specially beware with children; if boat is certified for 7 people, you should take 7 PFD...but I guess 1 per passenger is OK).
3 flares (beware with expiration date), signaling mirror, fog horn, medicine box, torch.
Anchor and line.
2 rowing pads.
pump and inflatable repair kit.
bilge pump (can be hand operated)
boathook, 2 mooring ropes.
If more than 3 miles from coast: VHF (and you should have a title for VHF). If more than 5 miles...well neither SIBs nor common RIBS are safe boats.

It may look too many things but I keep all of that inside a net tied at the bow.

Bow cover, cargo net, fuel tank in bow and ladder

Have a nice time, you are welcome!

I got my Level 2 and ICC for a 3.4m Quicksilver I keep in a garage out of season in Mallorca, then use during summer.

Like many the boat was bought off e-Bay, so I'm not sure where I's start re proof of VAT (given it's second hand no VAT payable - only worth a few hundred anyhow).

Does a boat this small need registering?

Is insurance mandatory? (conflicting advice above)

Thanks in advance.,..

I was going to ask the same thing regarding registering the boat. We previously had a Bayliner which we registered on Windermere but since we've had this boat we haven't done it. Is this something we need to do, and a really stupid question, how do I go about registering it?

I'm really showing my ignorance now.
