    Not that I would condone this, but has any boater been prosecuted for declaring and paying the commercial rate for red diesel when they aren't a legitimate commercial business?

    What I don't get is why the Irish, and their green marked fuel, haven't come under the same scrutiny.
    If found in the Brexit forum, please return to the real world.

    I thought that they were also being forced to fall in line.

    How will this affect the RNLI as they are a charity so not commercial nor leisure?

    As a very very cash rich charity, they will be able to shoulder the burden & with fewer boaters about = fewer "shouts"

    Considering the price one pays for electricity due to the cost of windfarms i would have thought that argument somewhat defeated

    I suppose that an enterprising owner of a small tanker lorry could arrange to visit marinas at agreed times & fill MOBOS straight from the lorry. I have seen this done in Ostend years ago when a number of boats wanted large quantities of fuel straight from the dockside.
    Perhaps a marina operator would allow this for a small percentage.

    40 years ago farmer MoBo owners, did much the same> i assume this was declared as private use to HMRC in the Farm Accounts
