One strange (or maybe practical) fitting was the fridge fitted into the kitchen wall so that the bulk of the fridge went thru and into the bathroom, coming out under the sink.
There was a very slim wardrobe on the 'outside' of the bathroom, - I removed the 'back of the wardrobe' which enlarged the bathroom and allowed us to have a bath.
Only problem was - cruiser stern with steps down the RH side into the cabin. Leaves, fluff and whatever collected at the bottom of the steps blocking the drain holes into the bilge - we could never get the bildge dry - and if you left the boat more than a few days in the rain the water would flood into the cabin. Only solved by the addition of the 'pram-hood' - which not only solved the problem but gave us an extra room as well.
The requirement to show that the boat is “used bona fide for navigation” throughout the term of the licence only applies to 17(3)( c )(ii) not (i).
Finally, under contract law you have NOT agreed to be bound by the T&C’s, given that no choice in the matter has been allowed [I posted relevant law previously]. As mayalld has likewise said earlier, the issue of a licence is not a contractual matter.
1) I realise that, and as I was answering SABCAT, whom I believe to be a CCer and was relevant, particularly as he stated that :-
If C&RT can't provide categoric data to prove that a boat has not moved then that should be their problem,
2) Good point - so the C&RT's T&C's (that are not enshrined in law) are worthless - has that actually been tested in court ?
I wouldn't be happy with GPS on my boat. I'm also not happy with the concept of proving where I've been - who's business is it but mine? If C&RT can't provide categoric data to prove that a boat has not moved then that should be their problem, not the poor sap who they're pursuing because they've logged them in the same place weeks apart.
Much as you may not be 'happy' when you signed your licence application form you agreed to be bound by the T&Cs, one of which states :-
The law requires the boater to satisfy the Trust that the bona fide navigation requirement is and will be met.
It is not for the Trust to prove that the requirement has not been met.
