    No...
    The parity with private leisure aircraft should be maintained.

    After all, the government does not pay for the sea.. why should we the leisure boat owner pay for using it?

    You seem to believe wrongly:
    http://www.wycombeairpark.co.uk/wyco...acilities/fuel

    AVGAS and UL91 includes VAT at 20%
    Jet A1 includes VAT at 5%

    AVGAS 100LL £1.79/litre
    Jet A1 £0.75/litre

    That whooshing sound is the noise the point made as it passed over your head.

    Interesting idea..

    Deep water navigation buoyage is funded by light dues to Trinity House don't ya know?
    Harbour navigation is funded by your conservancy dues ..

    In your sunlit uplands governed by EU diktats.. perhaps the SAR services should only come out for VAT paying boaters .. The fact that by far the majority of CG rescues are for idiot beach walkers who fall of cliffs and get trapped by rising tides will simply mean that the population is denuded of Darwin candidates in a hurry?

    Or idiot beach walkers can start paying for their rescue?

    Just register and licence your boat for fishing. With your low kW power, and the lowest cost licence possible, which also requires no upkeep in terms of making landings, you should be quids in.....and you can land fish for profit if you catch any, use the pontoons in Newlyn at will, pick up 80% grants for safety and other gear etc etc.

    What not to like?

    Yes aware of that, but 'we' do not contribute to their cost do we, it is only commercial shipping
