ha, ha

I was sure that it is wiser to rent a boat not owns it if you use it a few days per year. So I was sure that it is popular in UK. I know where Nottingham is almost in the center of UK. So maybe we visited them and spend some time talking, drinking and helping in garden :boring (her husband is real Englishman and he really tooks care about garden).

And I will plan another trip by cheap airplane near London and go to Southampton.
The problem is very similar to some Top Gear part when they compared buying cheap old cars to use a train between 2 cities in UK ...

Many thanks for all info. I will think about them. It be nice to see some people in real. I think that the last possible solution is to tow my RIB to UK (only if I go for more than 1 week). In such case will I be able to use it ? If is it registered in Poland ? I bought it from UK ... But it was hull only. All setup and rigging has been done in Poland (where I have bought engine also)

Or it is possible to hire a SIB delivered to an address. Didn't seem that cheap when I looked.

Mat, you can use your own boat here no problems, some slipways will require proof of insurance to launch - other than that I am willing to bet you never get asked for anything, but obviously wise to bring your paperwork anyway.

I have full insurance in Pantaenius.

So I have below mentioned insurances:
a) Hull Casco
b) Third Party Liability
c) Personal Accident

It has automatically renewal feature.
b) is require in Croatia and Greece.

Do I need to inform nearest marina/coast guard that I will use my boat ?
I have always copies of all documents for such purpose.
I have also 2xMMSI and 2 radios (SH: portable HX851 and fixed GX2200E)

I did it in Greece (visit coast guards) but sometimes they looked at me that I bother them without reason. Maybe it is standard in UK

Matt we (the UK) are probably the least regulated country in Europe. You can just about pitch up anywhere on the coast & launch. You will generally find that the authorities are more interested in paperwork with the Queens head on it, rather than qualifications 😏

Some marinas or slipways will ask about third party insurance that is all.

You don't need to tell the CG or other authorities you are going out.

You can (and it may well be sensible to) radio them with your plans, but they don't routinely check up on you to make sure you are back at the planned time.

If you are using it near a major port you may be required to call VTS by VHF to advise them (or even seek permission) to cross certain areas.

If yes it is proof that (thanks to read RIB.net) I have been started to understand more of British humor and sarcasm (hope you will not charge me for that lessons)

If not ...
