  1. Harbour craft plying within the Port to be licensed.-No person shall, whether as owner or as servant, use any harbour craft to carry goods or passengers to or from any ship or vessel at the Port or from place to place within the limits of the Port unless such person holds a licence in the form in Appendix A granted by the Registering Officer and unless the harbnour craft so used has been registered. For purposes of registration the owner of a harbour craft shall cause it to be brought to such place as the Registering Officer may appoint.

Nothing in this rule shall apply (i) to boats forming part of the equipment of a ship or steamer, or (ii) to harbour craft maintained solely fro purposes of pleasure :

Provided that the Registering Officer may, if he thinks fit, withdraw this exemption from any such harbour craft.

  1. Minor or female owners.-If the owner of a harbour craft is a minor, the licence may be obtained by the guardian of the minor. If the owner is a woman, who, according to the custom of the country, does not appear in public, the licence may be obtained on her behalf by her duly authorized agent. In such cases the guardian or the agent shall be deemed to be the owner for the purposes of these rules.
  2. Licence to be produced on demand.-The owner of every registered harbour craft shall keep its licence in the possession of the tindal who shall produce the licence whenever called upon to do so by the Registering Officer or by any person duly authorized by him in that behalf.

A printed copy of these rules and any written directions issued by the Registering Officer for carrying the same into effect shall also be furnished by the owner to the tindal who shall, on demand, show it to any consignor or passenger by such harbour craft. The owner shall be responsible for securing that the tindal understands the said rules and directions, shall obtain a declaration from him to that effect and shall produce such declaration, whenever required by the Registering Officer.

  1. Distinctive numbering of harbour craft.-Every owner of a registered harbour craft, other than a catamaran used exclusively for fishing, shall paint or cause to be painted upon a black ground in white English figures, not less than 6 inches in length on a conspicuous part of the bow of such harbour craft on one side and of the quarter on the other, the number and tonnage of the harbour craft as mentioned in the licence. No person shall paint or cause to be painted upon any harbour craft not duly registered any such number as aforesaid or any other mark likely to induce the belief that such harbour craft has been registered.
