Surely ANY paperwork has to be a start?

Your boats must be insured in your club's name and you must have a club membership form/card/receipt. I'd have thought that both of those together with a polite explanation of your activities that day should suffice.

I got pulled once towing my old RIB through Antrim. The rozzer spotted* that she was a Redbay and then spent the next coupla minutes explaining precisely why he liked them so much...

A caution is not a criminal conviction, but it could be used as evidence of bad character if you go to court for another crime.

I only mention it because Poly is usually dead on with the details, and the little pedantic devil in me made me do it sorry!

As I am a boat spotter..if i can I always get the passenger in my car to take pics of any boat (especially ribs ) I see being towed about..

I also watch the stolen boat site for anything happening in my area or one I've been to.

One day surely I'll run across a stolen boat being towed...

Yes I'm a nerd.. :-)..

You are absolutely right, only a court can convict, but the difference between a police caution and an admonishment from the court is largely one of nomenclature. Although I am now wondering whether you don't have admonition as an option down there? But I accept and applaud your pedantry.

Sorry for delay. Quick swing from nights to lates!

Stop checked a bloke down Penmarlam tonight just leaving with a SIB in tow. Thought I was game on. He was legit and really grateful to be checked out. I was a little disappointed to be honest. Would have been the money shot if he had been stealing it.

There's any number of things you could do that might assist. Have the club officials telephone numbers on your phone and offer one of them up for verification. Got a club website? Put a picture of the boats on it. Officers at the roadside could get their control room to check the website. Have a laminated card made which gives details of the boat and your authority to be in possession of it. Just a few ideas off the top of my head for starters.

But basically put yourself in the shoes of the Officer. What would satisfy you? Probably be no different for them.

As I say don't get too concerned by it. It's the thieves we want to be concerned not those lawfully going about their business. Most of us with any common-sense know a wrongun when we see it just like anyone else.

UKBA Cutter Searcher was in Looe Bay this evening. They took a run up the river in their RIB. Then saw them alongside in Fowey later on and I blogged a look on board and at their RIB. Very nice set up. I want one,
