SSR Registration + RYA Power Boat Level 2 Course + ICC

I have finally got my SSR Registration Number for my Elling kb350

Does anyone know where I can get the number made and put on the boat like signs that they put on cars.
Also there is no room on the transom with the launching wheels and engine attached, should I put it on the tube at the back.

On Monday I am booked to have the RYA Power Boat Level 2 Course as this is my first boat and to give confidence all gos well should have that plus the ICC Document so other than the insurance will have all the paper work needed except the insurance.

Any recommendation what insurance company to go for

Next week I will be posting updates with photos of the progress so far, the new bunks that I have made and will be putting the boat on the trailer.

The reason for getting all the paper work needed and in order is that I am taking my sib to Tui in Galicia Spain where I have a holiday home, it is by the river Minho which borders between Galicia & Portugal which is the largest river in Galicia and a lovely river, I can cruise down to the Estuary or up river so looking forward to getting it there and have many happy hours.

Get water proof vinyl with correct adhesive for the tubes and decent sign writer should be able to run off a set of numbers also put a set on the inside ( just incase) an engraved plastic plate would work well

Don’t have to be huge either
“Each digit of the number should be a minimum of 30mm in height and 20mm in width, except for the number 1, which should be 5mm in width and have a thickness of 5mm with a space of 5mm between each digit.”

I used these guys https://www.funkymonkeyboatnames.co.uk/ssr-numbers

Although they have fewer font options than wilboatnames, they have an offer for SSR labels; £9.99 for two inc. delivery

Thanks for letting me know I have ordered the SSR Number from funkymonkey for £9.99 for two.
How difficult are they to stick on the boat tubes

Follow the destructions - clean the area / warm up the area / apply using the squegee.

I think the SSR numbers are intended to be applied to a hard surface, rather than tubes.

Here is the link to the tube lettering:

I can put the SSR numbers on the inside of the transom as there is room but should you have them on the outside.

Do you need to have the British flag on well if you are using it in another EU country

The £500 is what a well known tube/RIB dealer quoted for 2xSSR number hypalon patches & 2x name patches. So 4 patches in total.
And the boat isnít called supercalifragilisticexpialidocious......

Uchaf means upper seems someone added that to make it even longer perhaps after a place in New Zealand had a longer name? There have been a few additions over the years......

Can you have the SSR number on the inside of the transom, as I have no room on the outside.

Same here, mines going on the inside under the engine mounting pad.

Hi Fellow Ribers & Sibers

Great new I took my RYA Power Boat Level 2 Monday and Passed

The weather was very good on Monday with the sun out all day it was one of the best days this winter how luck I was, the course was quit intense with a lot theory and practice on a rib boat, the instructor was very good and made it very clear explaining thing, it was good because he could spend more time with me being on a one to one basis.
I have just to get the ICC registration and all my document will be in order with no problems taking it to Spain.

Can you confirm that there is no problem putting the SSR number on the inside of the transom under the engine mount

The rules are quite vague about the placement of the number. It says that the number must be on an external part of the ship where it can be ďreadily seenĒ
