Ribbing to France/ Ships Register ?

If I intend to go across the channel to France I seem to recall something about needing to register the rib on a ships register ?

Is this true and if yes how do I go about it ?

What are you trying to do? Sell the fleece or frighten people?

For taking a boat any where in the Continent you need to register the boat to the small ships register in the UK and get an SSR number. The letter and the number you should display clearly on both sides of your boat together with the name of the boat.
You also need to have insurance, VAT paid certificate, all boat papers inc purchase invoice, all safety equipment that are required in the country where you are going to use the boat (very important fines are HEAVY) and your ICC.
That's the lot and you're on your way

SSR

Hi MStacey,

I went through this process earlier in the year, if you contact:

Registry of Shipping & Seaman,
MCA Cardiff
Anchor Court, Ocean Way
Cardiff
CF24 5JW
Tel: 029 20448855

They will send you the relevant forms just return with appropriate fee £20 if I remember right.

They will send out your certificate with details of boat, name of boat & registered owner & SSR number to be displayed on boat hull or tube.

Its as easy as that

Regards

Just forgot. If you have and operate a VHF you need to have a VHF Operators Licence, the VHF fee paid and the sticker displaied on your boat.
VHFs on boats are compulsory in most countries. I believe this applies to France. I will check it out for you

Daniel I am 10000000% sure.
If you happen to get near an official who wants to go by the book you can pay a hefty fine (in Greece is Euro 300). Is up to you

Yes you do.

Like your car's tax disc, you need an annual VHF license (Your personal license - properly called operator's certificate- is like your VHF driving license, the boat's VHF license - properly called ships radio license - is like your car tax disc)

Don't forget your red duster and courtesy flag!

Hi Martin,

I assume Manos means the boats license from the Radiocommunications Agency which is displayed in a clear sticker thing on your boat.

I downloaded mine from http://www.radio.gov.uk/topics/marit...time-index.htm
and I think it's another £20 fee if I remember right. Takes about 7 to 10 days to come through when you've sent the details in to them..... that's if you remember to sign it of course (d'oh) - the first app I sent them I forgot to sign at the end, so it got sent back again.... oops

-Alex

I have just read the leaflet which came with my SSR certificate. There is nothing about displaying the number on both sides of the boat.

From MCA leaflet;
Quote:
You must ensure that your vessel is marked with its registered number (including the prefix 'SSR'). This must be painted on, or fixed to the exterior of the hull, deck or superstructure where it can be readily seen.

Yes - nobody in the cold bit of Europe will bother about where/how your SSR is displayed. Bloody pedantic Greeks, LOL

The French of course have a reputation for being officious, but I've never experienced it either as a land based tourist or by sea. I was once advised I could "drink as much as you like and drive home" when on holiday in France "as they'll never bother to stop a car with GB plates" - I didn't test this, of course!

I will be quite anoyed if i do need to move my SSR sticker since it's only been there about 10 hours (made it this morning and stuck it on lunchtime!!!!!). Havent found the leaflet yet but i'm going to gamble on this one and go with DJL's advice!

So you'll be putting up the bail money Daniel!

Cheers

Ok, thanks I get the idea now and have downloaded the appropriate ships radio form and will send it off tommorrow.

Whats the protocol/ accepted practice on flying a red ensign and a courtesy flag ??

- oh no, this is one of those Qs that can make a thread go on forever! YBW.com has loads on flag protocol stuff, esp on the yottie forum...

I think you just have the red ensign as the major (highest and largest) and the courtesy flag as the minor (lower and smaller). As RIBs have fairly simple flag arrangements (if any!) most of the yottie stuff about where to fly what is sort of irrelevant. However you can elaborate as much as you like. Skipper's nationality, etc (note Charles's SA flag on his "mucking about" thread).

Of course, the most important thing is the RIBnet burgee
