Third party insurance is mandatory on all waters controlled by British Waterways, who will not issue a licence until they have received proof of insurance.

On coastal waters and other stretches of water not controlled by British Waterways there is no such restriction, however most harbour authorities and the like will not allow you to use their facilities if you do not have liability cover.

In my opinion, you would be well advised to obtain a minimum of �2,000,000 worth of liability cover before using your boat. Its not worth the risk, if an accident should occur. Why not visit for further advice and to obtain a quote for your insurance.

The problem is not the fine but the resulting suspension and mandatory insurance rate increase. In North Carolina a speed of 15+ over the limit is an automatic suspension.
