Boat Scrutinising

All boats used on any of our lakes must be scrutinised every year prior to being used or put on any part of the water. Boat Scrutinising takes place on 6 days across the year between 10am and 1pm.

Scrutinising at any other time is strictly by appointment only. Appointments should be arranged by contacting one of the club’s scrutineers, listed below. Privately arranged appointments will be subject to a £10 fee.
