Every type of boat must have a skipper.
A skipper is legally responsible for:
the safety of the boat
all the people who are on board
Stow your gear – loose fishing gear can be dangerous.
Keep your decks clean – a clean deck and transom area will prevent your bilge pumps and drain holes from blocking up. A build-up of water on the deck can cause you to capsize.
Keep clear of cable protection zones – anchoring and fishing is not permitted in these zones. Heavy fines can be imposed if you are found anchoring or fishing in these areas
