See that C&RT have a new toy. They were flying one over our moorings this morning on the G&S hovering over each boat?.

Probably checking that licences are properly displayed and recoding how long each boat has been moored. Next step will be video evidence against overstayers. :P

It would make a change to shooting clay pigeons.

The guy who was flying it had a CRT logo on his jumper and hi-viz vest.

They are probably testing the device to issue the £150 "OVERSTAY CHARGES" they are threatening if you moor on a LTM for 5 minutes.

I wonder if they had CAA permission, otherwise they were breaking the law? (article 95 2(c))

You do get very boring with your hate of drones Nick.

The 50 meter rule includes vertical so as long as it's over 50 meter above the vessel or building it's legal.

But they need to have permissions if they make any commercial gain out of it.That includes any form of surveying, licence checking etc.

Not even the CRT would be daft enough to fly without permissions.

Brave person to fly over water, I hate flying over water it plays havoc with the sensors and sometimes lulls the craft into thinking its at the wrong height. Tats why i doable all downward sensors while overt the water.

I don’t hate drones. I nearly bought one. But then I discovered how difficult it was to use one and stay within the law, so I decided not to bother.

True, but 164’ is quite high. For example, the pontcycllte is only 121’ above the Dee.

Luckily for the CRT bloke the Pontywhatsit is still in Wales, not at Saul Junction then.

Very true. However both 164’ and 121’ are the same in Saul Junction as they are in Wales.

since when was identifying charge evaders and contract breakers associated with 'commercial gain'?  ......   or are you one of the non-compliers who believe that avoiding financial loss caused by fraudsters and cheats is the same thing as obtaining commercial gain?

from where did you get your second italicised sentence?

I find it hard to understand how flying a drone over a boat helps prevent or even identify licence evasion.

Shiver me timbers - because the camera can spot pirates by their outrageous attire!
