Think it's 6 to register,55 for annual slipway charges,you will also need backing boards for reg no.i think single launch and retrieve is 15.

Think your 20 will include slipping at Duncan Mills. You need to register "on and off" the Loch as well. It's probably easier just to launch there where you can tie alongside a jetty to get familiar with the boat rather than drifting about off the beach. (I'm also not sure if you are allowed to launch a powered boat from anywhere other than the three official sites. ...Sorry if this sounds onerous, really it's not and the Rangers will keep you right....nice people.

Hi Dubrus, Not sure I fully understand you.
How do you put the numbers on the boat without putting the stickers on the boat? I don't understand
How do you stick them to a SIB?

Thanks

From what I understand. You stock the numbers on a backing board and then tie that to your boat

you can launch where you like at loch lomond so long as you are registered to use the loch.

the decals/backing boards were circa 20 quid last time i got them (only need them once) and that included the reg fee....the launch is on top of that if you choose to do so. since no trailer is involved here they may let you use the slipway FOC so long as you don't block the slip for others, you would need to ask the rangers.

as a newbie, i wouldn't go near the ranger station to launch a SIB, it is a very busy place and akin to a macdonalds drive through on busy days.

cheers

BTW I had a great time but it got a little choppy as the afternoon went on. Nearly bounced out the boat a couple of times lol.
