If you are caught in Gibraltar waters with a 6 mtr + rib or a powerboat with more then 200HP the local Police have the right to confiscate these and one has not a chance of any appeal.
Visitors have to apply in advance and permission may be granted.
This is because of the drug running operators.
when this law was implemented some few years ago all powerboats boats and ribs in the marinas were confiscated and never returned to their owners.
I believe you will be towing so this does not apply to you and also your rib is 5.7 and has a 150 HP so I should not have brought this up but at least now you know.
I know of this "from the horse's mouth"
