Just reading through this whilst applying for the SSR and insurance etc. Couple of questions - is there a correct/minimum size etc for the red ensign? How do I fly this on my inflatable? - Can I just tie it onto the side? Also Pikey Dave - I notice you mentioned something about the 5 mile limit - I definitely won't be going outside this limit - but was wondering what it meant? Many Thanks

The French have different rules for various categories of French boats. Basically a small boat without a cabin is restricted to around 5 miles from shelter. Roughly speaking this means that most ribs & all Sibs are limited to going no further than 5 miles off shore. This doesn't apply to non-French vessels as long as you can prove that you're not French I.e British registered. Re-red ensign, a 3/4 yard seems to do the trick.

Zodiac do a really neat flag pole useful for SIBs where there is a pad glued to the tube that you then screw the flag pole into when you need it and tighten with a nut.

With an engine > 6,1hp you need "ICC Inland & Coastal waters" in France.

This does not apply for boats that are less then 5m AND do less than 20km/h.

Edit: the rules of the country of origin apply. I'm Dutch and I need ICC II (coastal waters) at sea. I don't know what the rules in the UK are.

You have to be a member of the RYA to access their information on France now.

From reading this thread do I take it for a RIB of less than 5 metres doing less than 20km/h I don't need an ICC. I don't need anything other than insurance? I can just put the boat in the water and enjoy myself

For France, you don't need an ICC at all.

You need an ICC on coastal waters for a RIB with an engine over 4.5KW (or 6,1hp).

The 5m/< 20kmh rule is for inland waters.
