ALL boat and vessel owners who have yet to register their boats need not travel too far as the Maritime and Safety Authority of Fiji will conduct nation-wide registration and surveying trips for small crafts beginning this month on Kadavu.

A small craft is a boat measuring less than 15 metres which may be used for inland-river, inter-island transportation and for fishing or diving.

Authority CEO Neale Slack said they would begin on Kadavu covering Vunisea, Daviqele, Nabukelevu ira, Dravuwalu, Matava, Kavala Bay then on to Naqara in Ono.

"We will be sending out notices on areas the teams will be visiting and on which days," Mr Slack said.

"From Kadavu we move to the Tailevu zone from Nausori, Nasali, Bau, Korovou, Natovi, Dawasamu before moving on to Navua and Beqa, Yanuca and Vatulele."

A separate team will also be on Vanua Levu and the Lomaiviti group at the same time.

Mr Slack said it was important that all boat owners were at these points to have their vessels surveyed and registered.

"If your vessel has not been certified then you should not risk the lives of others on your boat."

The team will also conduct awareness of the gazetted Maritime Transport Decree 2013 and the Ship Registration Decree 2013.
