After a little research I think I've found the right place to register my boat:

Registering your pleasure craft : Directgov - Travel and transport

In summary then is the following correct to use my boat in Spain?

RYA Level 2
RYA Coastal Endorsement
Insurance (already organised)
I must register my boat
National flag on stern
Life jackets for everybody on board (I do this anyway)
3 Flares
Signaling Mirror
Fog Horn
First Aid Kit
2 x Oars
Pump and Inflatable Repair Kit
Bilge Pump
2 Mooring Ropes

On another note, although with hindsight it's not very secure, but we just pull the boat up onto the Beach and leave it there overnight. Plenty of others do the same and we've spoken to the locals and they assured us that everybody does it. Fingers crossed somebody doesn't decide to pinch it this year. ;-)

If you speak to locals, they also will tell you that very few people have their boat registered, insurance, title, safety equipment...!

Consider to get a handbox to take safety equipment, don`t let it abandoned at the beach!
Most of the theft risk is the engine, but I guess a 40hp is not a joke to lift.

Me, I moor at 200 meters from the beach using a mooring block. I swim to my boat and get to the beach to ship passengers on a safe signaled area. Some people uses kayaks, which they keep chained at the beach.

Thanks for the info VV... I drew up a similar long list last year after doing the ICC, but also noted the need for this VAT paid documentation. In the end the bureaucracy beat me ... but had a nice summer's boating regardless.... carry all the safety kit etc though
