Lifted off a boating forum

Get your boat registered warns Environment Agency

The Environment Agency is warning boat owners on the River Thames to get their boats registered, or risk being fined.

New laws mean that from 1 January, 2011, all boats kept or used on Environment Agency waterways must be registered, even if the boat is not being used. The annual registration charge applies to boats on every part of the River Thames, including backwaters and marinas.

All boats with an engine must also have valid third party insurance, including those visiting from other waterways or launching at slipways. Owners of most powered boats must also show they have a Boat Safety Scheme Certificate (BSSC), in order to register.

Angela Quayle, Thames Waterway Manager from the Environment Agency said: “We’ve discussed these new laws thoroughly with our customer representatives and we all agree this approach treats everyone fairly and equally. The laws are clear and consistent and make it harder for people who try to avoid paying the charges. Put simply, everyone with a boat on the river must register it with us.”

The Environment Agency is currently offering a grace period until 1 April, 2011, to give boat owners extra time to register their boats. An enforcement campaign will be carried out after 1 April, and owners of any boats found unregistered will risk being fined or having their boat removed.

Andrew Graham, South East Area Waterways Manager said: “We are gathering information about boats which are not registered to help target our enforcement work. If people wish to let us know about unregistered boats in their area, they can email us at:
waterwaysse@environment-agency.gov.uk.”

The Environment Agency estimates there may have been as many as 1,600 unregistered boats on the River Thames last year (although many of these may not have required registration until the change in law).

All money received from boat registration fees is ploughed back into the maintenance of the non-tidal River Thames and providing services for boaters, such as moorings, locks and staff to assist customers.

Note they are inviting reports of boats that are/you believe to be unregistered ......Steve.

How does one tell is a boat is registered or not?
Should there be a tax disc on the windscreen? What does it look like?
What about boats without a windscreen?
Come to that, I wouldn't even know how to tell if a boat was illegally moored or not! Wink
