(you cannot buy area's of the sea) so therefore is open to all, and therefore everyone is at risk.
AFAIK the Road traffic act only applies on roads connected directly to the public road system and regarded as such. This is little Public land that would be affected, particularly up here.

This discussion is really going nowhere as there are two opposing views and neither will meet.

The only consolation is that even if regulation comes in that it will not affect me or many folk up here.
I already have way more than would be realistically be required by any legislation, there is absolutely no way of enforcing it in any of the cruising grounds I use and basically I would ignore it anyway like most of my compatriots.

If it cannot be enforced then it is of no value nor does it require being worried about

Personally I don't think anything is likely to happen anyway, particularly in Scotland as outside some small areas we just don't have the numpties running about without a clue, they wouldn't tend to last long in most of the coastal waters around the coast here....
