Welcome aboard none im aware of coastal . I think river licenses vary from watr authority but you can get self cert 30 day season tix i think. Vhf requires a licence but the general consensus is dont worry about sending a mayday.. Id recommend 15 hp on a 3.2m as a min for the coast and iwont berate you on killcord use. Most of all enjoy

Alsib,
No compulsory licensing / training / insurance for UK coastal waters although some local authorities will demand you register with them and provide proof of insurance before using their slipways. Insurers will look on you more favourably if you've had some form of recognised training.

Can't comment on inland waterways

THAT SAID.......
  • Please get at least 3rd party insurance before going afloat. Many would consider anyone going afloat without to be irresponsible.
  • Please consider doing your RYA Level 1 or 2 powerboat course. It will cost a fraction of what you'll spend on your boat, will increase your knowledge and enjoyment no-end and might stop you becoming a 'statisic'
  • Please carry a VHF radio and flares and know how to use them (as previous post strictly speaking a license is needed for a VHF but you're not going to get nicked for sending a mayday without a license)
  • Lifejackets & kill-cords go without saying

Welcome to Ribnet and enjoy your boating!!

What damage would one do in a 3 meter sib that would require insurance to pay for it?

You would be wise to at least take out third party liability insurance, props can do serious damage... especially to people.

Nothing that can be healed by sending a few 100 quid to some random administrative office in some random city (probably Milton Keynes or similar depressing place). I don't know how it is where the OP is from but down in Cork you'd be a long time on the water looking for someone to mince with a prop

Accidents happen. They happen to bystanders. They happen to crew. They happen to skippers...

They even happen to supremely overself-confident Corkonians.
