My husband is thinking of buying a small fishing boat/speedboat, and using it on the lake near to us over here in France. The thing is he has never had a boat before and doesn't really know the in's and out's about the rules and regulations of boat ownership over here in France. For example do you need a licence? do you need insurance and how much would this be? How mush would it cost to keep the boat at the lake? If you could shed any light on the above questions I would be extremely appreciative. It makes it even harder over here that we are not all that fluent with the language either so it not even an option that we just go along to the lake and ask someone. Please help if you can. Thank you.
