On the plus side, the sensibly entered ones wont have inappropriate SAR teams sent should the big red button ever be pressed "in anger" (and I hope it never happens to any of you).


As the guy ruinning my VHF course said, "get it as accurate as possible - you don't want them to scream past you looking for a sinking liner with 500 people on board and think you are part of the rescue effort (more likely in a rib!), or just not notice you 'coz they're looking for something much, much bigger....."

Glad I never made mine anything extreme then.

I can't remember what I put on mine (registered it in 2007), I don't remember even being asked and it doesn't mention the vessel type on the licence itself.

However, I always assumed that the CG66 registration would be the record the coastguard would match your MMSI from any DSC distress call in order to extract your boat details?

Yep, the CG would type ypur vessel's name in and the area you cruise and it would bring up all the relevent information.

For VHF license I used Pleasure Ship and MTB Motor Boat.

Interestingly for the SSR in the guidance notes it says : Inflatable:- including rigid and non-rigid types.

Depends on gthe nature of incident and what we need to know - ITU database is usually first call for MMSIs, given the (very) large number of non-updated CG66s in the system.

To be honest, for a normal distress incident, we wouldn't usually go to CG66 at all. It's more used for overdues, prolonged searches etc rather than identifying craft to send a lifeboat to.
