If it was more important to speak than to listen you would have two mouths and one ear.

Welcome to the Forum.

I'm no expert, but I'll give it a go until someone tells me that I'm talking out of my arm.

You can't get the boat licensed until you have a Boat Safety Cert (or CofC).

Therefore it should be no problem to move the boat to where the work can be done & then get the licence.

I would think that you will need the 1m third party insurance.

Best of luck.

If you are taking on an unlicensed boat, taking it to dock, getting it into a condition that will pass the BSC, then licensing it, BW will be happy for you to move it and, often, be helpful.

It is in their interests for you to get the boat legal and it won't happen with it sat on its mooring.

Do let them know what you're up to, though, or their attitude may be less amenable.
