Just a couple of thoughts on this one. When I visit the Peak District I visit the Peak District, not the Peak District National Park, so why the Broads National park? The same can be said of the other National Parks.

Secondly, since the Bill is probably dead in the water, where does that leave the Boat Safety Scheme? One way and another numerous folk have invested quite serious money in this scheme, yet the scheme needs the Bill to go through. So where does this leave us boaters? I'm certainly not going to the expense of BSS certification until we have a Bill that looks likely to succeed. The hurdles to be overcome are growing higher by the day!

Is there any way that the BA (or anyone else ) could require 3rd party insurance without having the Bill ? maybe as a requirement to get a toll sticker?

Forgetting the Bill for a moment,.... Not to have at LEAST third party insurance is just plain stupid and  asking for trouble.
Back to the Bill,
Some people I know  Wink  Wink  are very confident of its success, if not this year, certainly next. Indifferent

It will go through, Andy, indeed it must go through, but not the Bill as we know it! To be honest I can not see it making it this year. Unless there are some big changes it is effectively dead in the water. Was Green the architect behind it? There is some very clumsy and naive thinking behind the proposed Bill as worded. Perhaps you should come along to the meeting on Thursday. 2.00, County Hall, see you there? You could stand in for Adrian, I'm sure that he'd happily do that.

I think that when Packers joined the BA he made a fatal mistake, or so it seems. He neither listened nor asked. Now he must, and if he does, it will go through, eventually.

Ive only just read this thread properly this evening Blush , and noticed this line from one of Poppy`s rants....How many Rangers would have the ability to handle a 30ft gaff rigged yacht in a blow........Answer... All of them.... the rigg would be dropped and the vessel taken in tow.
How difficult is that. Confused

Andy,

Well, I`ve logged in as I was tempted to make comment here, but have since thought better of it. You`ll probably guess which way I was going with it, but must be careful what I say!! Gasp  Playful

I feel that I`ve shown considerable restraint!!

Pete

Well, first of all, you need to know which bit of string does what!
If you don't know whether to pass under the bows or behind a racing yacht, part of a fleet in restricted water, I suggest that would be very difficult indeed.
But perhaps the Doctor will put you all through a course (funded out of the Nav. Account, of course).

If a Ranger is unable to demonstrate competence in such matters, I am sure that the Insurers would have a very easy time in the event of damage or injury

Poppy,

Andy,

Total thread drift here, were you on duty at the end of The New Cut on Thurs lunchtime? I was coming out from Reedham and thinking whether to take the long route back to my mooring, but the flood tide was putting me off, or whether to take the short cut done the New Cut. The dredging work taking place ultimately made the decision for me Smile
