found a boat.

ok, I live in the east of England, I have barely ever been on a boat. yet im 5 minutes away from the Norfolk broads... its just one of them things....

a guy who was renting a unit off of me done a runner a couple of years back, I finally got around to clearing it and found a boat... I inflated it and it has a couple of leaks but looks otherwise in good shape...

I want to take it on the river with my mates but I don't know what I need to do?

does it need a license?
an MOT??
insurance?

is this going from a drunk afternoon in the pub great idea to
you need another mortgage?

any help would be appreciated!
thanks in advance,
noob.

LOL - don't worry - we ALL call 'em that sometimes - it's just a policy thing for the forum. Welcome to RIBnet. Interesting Zodiac - might be useful enough.
