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

Perhaps you could use me as a prop in your Voodoo extravaganza ?
