Jason,

See if you read it the same as me but seems your craft will be 226/yr unless you leave the engine off. Mad price!

In addition, if you go on the Norfolk Broads there is this toll:

For the Thames you might like to consider:

And then there is the rest

Been looking over the links (thanks peasemold) as we'd been thinking of filling in between sea trips with more river use in 2010. Seems near Peterborough we are in the most expensive area to register a 3.2m inflatable with a 10hp.

However for your use Jason it looks like a licence with no outboard is just 21-53 and an aux outboard of under 4hp is a nil cost extra.

That would save 200 a year over the charge I see with a 10hp... enough to get something just for the river like the mint 3.5hp Suzuki I sold earlier this year for around 150.

Hmm... perhaps I should have kept it... but there is always the Seagull in the shed!

We went the 'explorer license' route, which was about 80 quid for 30 'day passes'....

Wow!

If any of you guys are visiting the Central-West Canada, look me up. I'm sure we'll be able to find a lake or river to go boating on. I'll look after all of the water access fees, you cover the gas.
