Technically, no
Only the registered vessel is supposed to be on the berth. But the powers that be can allow other boats if prior (couple of days) permission is sought which kind of rules out just popping on there for a few hours in waiting for the tide. Personally I have no problem with people using it if they check with me first but at your own risk, they could charge you the daily rate, 19 per day or part thereof for Archangel if I'm right?

Yes, that's right: 19. I wonder how far my boat would get on 19 worth of unleaded? About half way to Guernsey by my reckoning.

WOW!... never expected that load of replies! LOL!

You're a lively bunch in here aren't you (though I expect there's not a lot of you out on the water on a cold Monday night!)

OK first question!: Having bought an airdeck, how would I go about fixing in a seat at some point?

Secondly, I plan to ship my kit out to Mallorca this summer, has anyone any advice on best way to ship to Spain (I'm thinking about packing/care needed for the Suzuki)?

Gracias!

Sorry, don't often look in the Sibs section so didn't see your post. Used to get 12kts fairly easy by sitting at the front and reaching back to the tiller to keep the weight balance good. I got it an auction with the motor and really only bought it for the engine to use as an aux on my last rib.

Reckon we'll be heading in that direction more often as of next year.
I have heard "from within" the Big House, duty free fuel is about to run dry and it's a done deal already

Ferryden: Don't worry about the thread hijacks, you'll get used to it!

If you're "Shipping" it then you're looking at palletised which will cost you around 200+ (Speedshift)
Will you need a license to use an engine of that size out there?

Hi from Spain. I'm afraid it's mandatory. I do not know whether an UK license can be used (I believe skipper certificates are cheaper and easier to get in UK), plus taxes for the boat and maybe more papers. Huge business round that in here.
I bet 90% moored (by my cove) boats that size do not have a single paper - though nautic fines have 3 zeros in here...
There is a projected law (expected 2011-2012) to make easier and cheaper boat licensing, just because of those behaviours. Once the law is approved, I am almost sure fines will be more usual.

Many thanks guys.

We'll be mainly firing round the bay of Pollensa in Mallorca where the rules are you don't need a license for less than 13 kW of power, so could get away with it...but I'm going to get myself on an ICC compliant powerboating course (and do the small ship registration to I think) just in case. Really exciting!

Thanks again guys!
