Thames info

Can some one tell me if I have to license or register my sib to take on the Thames.
It's a sea search 3.9 with 20 hp outboard.
Thank you

Hi there,
You do need to get a licence if you are using it on the non tidal Thames, but not if you are using it on the tidal section.
Where are you thinking of going?

Downstream of Teddington you don't need any licence. Launching from River Lane at Petersham is good for SIBs.

We've launched sizeable RIBs from River Lane, but you need 4WD at lowish water.

Same sort of areas i’m Interested in except Putney instead of Teddington 😊
Do you trailer it and so need a slipway or does it go in the back of the car?
Let me know if you need any info on Marlow and surrounding area as I know a geat slip if you need it.

What’s parking with a trailer like at River lane? On google maps it looks like there’s no yellow lines / restrictions?

Get there early & there's a fair amount of parking on the lane. Beware if it's a high tide though, it can flood for a few metres up the lane.
