Unlicensed boats a double edged sword

CONCERNING the survey finding more unlicensed boats than reported, writes Bill Ridgeway.

Reporting information on unlicensed boats is a bit of a double-edged sword for CaRT.

Not taking seriously

On the one hand CaRT is trying to demonstrate that boaters are not taking seriously the need to licence their boat whilst, at the same time, revealing that it is not taking seriously the need to make sure boats are licensed.

It is, therefore, in the interest of CaRT to under-report.
