Spoke to them today, stand by for a video interview with them in the next week, direct from the MSV Boss on my new Youtube Channel.

Just waiting on an official reply from the Water Police as well for a video interview after the unofficial chat with them on the weekend.
Well past the edge, almost at the point of no return.

You're really getting into this, good stuff.

It's about time MSV/Water Police etc got serious because there's that many twits on the water without a clue that it's a matter of time before something bad happens and the coroner's report will recommend licences or some S#!^.

Of cause that would also need to cover surf boards Stand up paddle boards. And push bikes. Or should we have walking licences to cross the road.

I think it would be a hard call to licence human powered craft of any kind. Including a pair of shoes

Now l have both PLB and EPIRB im quite happy to carry both but when they are up for renewal if the law changes l will re assess my situation. Although l see having the EPIRB on a kayak is not really ideal it's still another safety device that could save your life :up:

The regulations are being reviewed in 2022, MSV are happy to review PLB's v's EPIRB's on yaks. Just need to sort a suitable way to attach them to a PFD (I am working on this). Also working on a plan with MSV about a PLB offer, but no date or promises just yet. :evilgrin:
