LPG On Board - Gas Checks
Keeping your boat Gas Safe is a life dependant responsibility for you and neighbouring vessels, whether you are out at sea, inland river boating or mooring. A correct installation and regular checks of your boat's gas system are vital for safety.
Seasons can carry out the necessary Safety Checks and provide Gas Safe Certification. Certification that your boat is Gas Safe needs to be carried out by a registered Gas Safe Engineer. A Gas Safe Certificate is a requirement for insurance purposes, particularly on purchase, so they know they’re insuring a safe boat.
If you use your boat for charter, the MCA’s coding requirements mean you’ll need a certificate before the boat is passed as fit for use. This is much the same if you live aboard or keep the boat on inland waterways.
Considering gas is the most dangerous substance likely to be on board, installation and maintenance is certainly an area we would recommend is undertaken by a professional. This is a legal requirement for all boats used for anything but, private use.
