I will pick up a leaflet from the cg station tomorrow and let you know what it states, but basically it is saying that all pleasure vessels who go to sea should do passage plans, have certain safety requirements such as radar reflector. Pleasure Vessels over 45ft must now have items such as Solas I or II cards distress signal cards, liferafts, life bouys etc. This list is basically what I had to do to get my 7.2m RIB MCA coded to cat 3. yellow code.
I will try and find a web site link as well for you.

David thanks,

MCA cat 3 yellow code how many miles offshore?,is it from a safe haven and do all work boats need codeing for diferent areas and tasks?

I also agree questions will only be asked when something goes wrong like car insurance companys do when you make a claim.

Yes. I am 20 Miles from safe haven night or day in "favorable" weather conditions whatever they are!!!!!!

I am uk wide, but there is a less strict code (red book) for a nominated departure point (NDP)
