Dont you just love the red tape
i have phoned round today about a bss.
but have been told dont bother cos th B A has changed its mind on things.
a lot of owners last year spent their money on things that the Powers that be have decided were not needed.
so compensation claims maybe in the offing.
poor old boat yards where following the rules but now the rules have changed.
WHO IS TO BLAME>
please can some one shed some light on this
cos do i need one to pay my licence or not

Hi Roya,

Welcome to the world of boat ownership.

The BA is having trouble at the moment in bringing the BSS and this is leading to all the confusion.

In your situation, assuming that the boat already has a current toll license valid for this year, then you do not need to worry until next year, as the toll license is for the boat, not the person and is non refundable or transferrable.

The only place you may discover problems is with your insurance company insisting that you have the BSS, although there are many out there that do not.

For your own peace of mind, and bearing in mind that it will become a requirement eventually, I would get a BSS done, but in your own time, as there is no real need to do it immediately.

In the meantime, just get out on the water and enjoy your new purchase.

Keith

Latest circular from Jonathan Richardson says
'quote'

At this stage we estimate that the authority will gain the necessary powers in 2006 and possible (sic) start to implement the scheme from 2007, though the exact date and introductory schedule has yet to be developed. (dated 1st July 2005).

Whether any insurer will wait that long is debateable. The scheme itself is fixed so that's not a problem. Really doubt that there are any grounds for 'compensation' examinations conducted to laid down criteria and passed or not as found and remain current for four years. If in the light of experience subsquent checks are more modest is anyone really saying you still have to stick with outdated requirements, I hope not!

Well you said, "Aim for the green post!" Bill...

Roya,

Now that you have owned Josh for a few weeks, how are you settling in to being a boat owner?

By the way, you really should have sorted out that bilge by now Smile

I think Captain Joshie should be ashamed with the state he left those bilges in.

Glad you are settling in, I hope Joshua is being a good boy, always behaved well for us.

Now I'm getting a bad reputation over these bilges people are starting to think I left them in a terabble state, but honest folks they were full of beer (Wherry) last time I looked  Playful Wink . and clean enough to drink out of  Evil Grin  Cheers

Now about Blue Skies waterheater, made in Wales and full of leaks  Blush


Kind regards, John.

If I had the choice I think I'd rather sort Joshies bilges than Roya's!

Still haven't told you how jealous I am Roy, I thought you had a bit of a spring in your step at Acle in June. I can see you now at next years meet, firmly moored alongside the "owners". If I ever get it back from the ex-missus I'll be there with me tent!
