Depends where you launch.

Most don't require anything.

No. There is no requirement for PB2 in the UK, though it's a good idea to do it. Insurance isn't required to use public slips, though I stand to be corrected, but private slips can insist on whatever they like. Again, good idea to have insurance for third party at least.

As a rule, no. But slipways & harbours are generally privately run here in the UK & the owners can demand what they like. Is it somewhere specific that you were looking at?

Some "public" slips that are controlled by councils or harbour authorities might apply requirements around insurance (3rd party at least in case any damage is done to other vessels), and potentially proof of ability to drive a boat (commonly RYA PB2). Private/club slips may also have similar requirements. But I don't think there's any hard and fast rule - it's a case of read the rules of each site you go to!

I've used a variety of slips over the years and never yet been asked for any proof of this kind of thing at all, but I think some on here have.

It seems like you've started 2 identical threads, might be worth dropping the mods a line & ask them if they could amalgamate them to save duplication.

+1

Never been asked to produce proof.
I suspect the ones that state the requirement are just covering their own asses.

Loch Lomond requires insurance...never been asked for proof. They require you have CE or USCG approved life jackets, you just get asked if you have them.
I'm not for one minute advocating you don't insure your boat, go out without life jackets or adequate training but, you break the rules "on your own head be it". I doubt anyone will actually try to stop you.

the public slips around Nth Wales and Merseyside are run by the various local councils, they all require proof of insurance and pbl2, but that's assuming there is someone from the council at the slip when you're launching!

nothing in the bylaws about it IIRC - although I do think they ask the question (but since I have it I have no idea what happens if you say no).
