New Rib - contracts and registration

Probably been answered before and please point me to the relevant threads, but:

What documenation in terms of a buliders contract could / should I expect from my RIB builder?

With what agencies does it have to be registered? Anything like the DVLC.

1. I assume the SSR

https://mcanet.mcga.gov.uk/ssr/ssr/

2. But what about the strangly named CG66

http://www.mcga.gov.uk/c4mca/mcga-hm...-hmcg-cg66.htm

3. And with who else?

4. Should the RNLI do a Sea Safety check. Who do you contact for that?

And anything else I have missed?

Thanks

Bruce

You don't have to register with the SSR but I think it's good practice.

The RNLI are a good mob to contact about an RNLI safety check (couldn't help myself sorry!) and I really would advise you take one. If you hit the RNLI website you can book one

SSR ang CG66

Bruce, these registrations have subtly different purposes.

The SSR is a registration which is advisable (essential, really!) if visiting foreign countries, but completely optional (almost pointless!) for UK coastal cruising.

The CG66 is a safety identification scheme, so that if the Coastguard hears a "mayday" call from vessel "rib-one" he can look up "rib-one" on his database and confirm the size, colour and other attributes of "rib-one" to assist identification. Also makes any mayday/pan-pan more credible.

Also useful to have registered the CG66 so that you can call in to the CG and register details of a long passage. Keep CG numbers for your cruising area in your mobile 'phone (they are in the Reeds Almanac that I assume you've purchased!).

Richard , being a ribnetter has become rather boring for me since I started to agree with you......bummer! I'll get the cg 66 sorted out as it seems very sensible.

.....Unless you wish to register your title to the boat in joint names, which was the point of the original question unless I have missed something..

No, at this stage, unless I can find a timeshare partner, it will be in my wife and my name

I registered my boat with an SSR number, CG66 and got a boat radio license.
I know lots of people here do all this but lots more don't. I reckon having the boat easily identifiable and numbered makes it safer if it ever goes pear shaped.
Plus probably a bit of my job rubbing off on my hobbies....
