[/ QUOTE ]Yes I believe so - you should stick the SSR numbers on though. Remember that the German authorities might have a different idea - as I said I had to de-register in France and so avoid all the rules and regulations which apply to French registered boats. I haven't a clue what happens if a boat is registered in two countries.

my understanding is that the ssr part 3 was established by the RYA as a simpler way of proving nationality when outside the UK-simpler than full part 1. So if you dont venture outside UK waters, I dont think you need it legally, at all.

Last year I bought a boat in Germany and brought her home with no registration docs. I just waved the sales contract and Bill of Sale at anyone who might be interested.

Our only brush with the authorites was the water police at the Kiel Canal, who came on board and copied everything down in longhand! What caught there eye was the RORC ensign with Schleswig as hailing port on the transom.

They wanted to be sure we hadn't stolen the boat!
