help

hi
i am very new to this past time, i have fished alot with friends in north wales.
recently i bought an inflatable, with an outboard motor, what i am looking for is a little help, not really sure if this is the right forum to ask.

firstly i know i need to insure it. do you recomend any good ones

also i drove to the wirral to check out the slip ways, were i found you need a permit. and you need to go on a 2 day course cost £280, and £120 for the yearly permit is this the case in north wales could any body advise me.

thanks for taking time to read MIke

Thats real bad. Someone must know of a cheaper way to get on the water in your area. Best of luck

There are quite a few around. Try a search here and you'll get plenty of recommendations

Sound like they're insisting on an RYA level 2 course. It's a useful thing to do but I haven't heard of anywhere making it compulsory.

Try www.boatlaunch.co.uk for more launching options, and bear in mind that if you have a small inflatable you may not need a slipway at all.

If you're launching off the beach then you're unlikely to need to pay, although there are some exceptions. In practise you'll probably find that you don't get charged to use most slipways as you're "only launching a dinghy"!

Reminds me that I must get some launch wheels . . .

I doubt you will get away with it at new brighton on the wirral -L2 and launch fee has been mandatory there for quite a while. Launching there is off the beach but you will be charged to access the beach via the slipway.
That is also a mighty swift and very busy bit of water for a little boat esp if you have little experience. Loadsa shipping esp now with extra windfarm traffic and BIG BIG tides! I would suggest you look somewhere a tad quieter to gain some experience.
