Its not a dumb question at all, here is my take on it.
It depends where you are thinking of launching/ landing ie; Loch Lomond requires registration £5.00 for the year and you have to display reg. no. included in the fee.
Places like North Wales/ Angelsey you have to register to be able to use council run slips, and to be able to land on some council controlled beeches, again you have to display their registration no.
But if not using their slips/beeches then no need to be registered.
It would be a damn sight easier if you could have a national registration that covers all of UK.
Someone else will have more info.
