  2. I wasn't particularly trying to justify going to a marina to winterise a boat. I was pointing out that the guidance you quoted was so full of flaws as to be unreliable.
  3. I read this site a lot, but, as I am based on the Broads, rarely post. But I can't let this pass without comment. It is incorrect in so many ways, being someone's loose interpretation of guidance from who knows whom. I won't list the inaccuracies, but urge members to read the regulations for themselves. They're written in plain English and are simpler to understand than some of the convoluted guidance that's doing the rounds. Just two particularly important points from the quoted guidance: 1. "Police don’t need to prove you broke the law to give you a fine - only to suspect you did so." Totally wrong - the regulations say: "21.—(1) An authorised person may issue a fixed penalty notice to anyone that the authorised person reasonably believes— (a) has committed an offence under these Regulations, and (b) is aged 18 or over." "Reasonably believes" is a far stronger requirement than "suspect". 2. The guidance totally ignores a very important (to boaters) exemption, "to visit a public outdoor place for the purposes of open air recreation". A public waterway is considered to be "a public outdoor place", and all forms of boating, from paddleboarding to motor boating, are considered to be "recreation".
