UK ham radio guidance resource

The RSGB Guidance Resource page provides links to useful amateur radio licence guidance 

Foundation licence holders can operate from sailing vessels (with optional /M suffix) but only on Internal Waters such as The Solent or Bristol Channel. 
The RSGB provides a link to the UK Territorial Sea map which shows these Internal Waters.

However, Ofcom’s July 2017 Guidance on the licence says, at para 2.14:
“Holders of a Foundation or Intermediate Licence may use their Radio Equipment beyond the baseline but are limited to the extent of UK territorial seas......”
Presumably, as they cannot operate Maritime Mobile, this means they can operate from offshore installations, or a bit of driftwood, as long as it’s not a Vessel at Sea.    
One does wonder if Ofcom actually proof read their guidance.
