Hi and welcome to the forum.

There is no general requirement to register a boat or get a licence for yourself on the sea but most inland canals/rivers and some lakes/lochs require a registration fee (usually no “driving” licence though). Also some slipways into the sea that are managed charge a fee and ask for proof of insurance... and there are a few that ask for a certain certificate of competence but they are rare.

Where do you intend to use the boat?
