To the OP - if you are moored in Leeds Dock or Clarence Dock (whatever its name is this week) have you checked out the terms of your mooring agreement with CRT. They normally don't allow sub letting so you might want to check this out with them too (I haven't checked the whole thread to see if this has been covered - sorry if it has)

I will look into it thanks.

Look he is going to do it regardless

Not really as I have a main c&rt office on my doorstep but I do have a market already not using AIRBNB with Irish leeds fans.

Well one reason would be that your insurance will be null & void if anything unfortunate happens whilst rented out, unless you inform them of what you are doing, and you won't be able to get the proper insurance without having a business license and you won't be approved a business license without having a part 10 BSC and filling out the CRT application for a business license.
Have you thought about who will be filling your water tank and emptying the contents of your loo containers whether it be cassette or pump out?  Also, the boat will need to be thoroughly cleaned between each rental & and how will your guests gain access to the boat & and who will be on hand to show them how things work?
It's not impossible to do it above board & legit, but there is a little more to it than registering with airbnb

My boat is simple and have water and leccy on tap but I would come and show them how stuff works.

Tbh with the location of my mooring it would be short stay people.

My boat is in leeds city centre with free water taxis from the railway station to the dock.

It's has everything in here.

I don't know why I don't use it TBH

Even I could make sure someone could not start my engine

I would take the bolt out of the prop for 1 then put air in my fuel system and drain the flue started battery is dead anyway so you start my boat with a winder.

My boat is nice on the inside but looks a dog on the outside so nobody would steal it anyway as it's not like a new paint job would change the look of the boat.
