Registration- who regulates?

Hi folks - new to this scene - recently purchased a 3m hondawave with 5hp. Ive just noticed that from April this year Anglesey council requires registration for all powered watercraft. Who regulates this? ie - If I just turn up at a beach - inflate the boat and cruise around for a while- who's to know if i'm registered or not? I support registering if the money is for environmental reasons, but would that be the case?

Views appreciated
thanks

FWP

Hi fwp, use this link to the Angelsey Maritime Agency and they can give you all the registration stuff you may need, hope this helps. Where have you got to so far with the new stead?

Thanks Vince- havent touched water yet- was planning on tomorrow but have hit the inevitable red tape!!
Its 20 quid to register on the day at any of the launches - question was- what is the registration fee actually for? Is it just another money making scheme by the local authoriries?

I suppose all areas are different but in Swansea the limit from the local slip is above 15hp. As my boat is looked upon as "just a dinghy" - no trailer etc I can get around it- great!!!

who cares instead of going of topic why dont you answer his question

IMOHO I think the reason for reg. is to try and insure everyone that launchs a watercraft has insurance at the very least as this is part of the reg. requirement
