Capelli ribs for hire

We have just become the agents in the South West for Capelli ribs and we are hoping to rent out the ribs as we live in Shaldon/Teignmouth area of Devon. We are struggling to find anyone to insure the ribs for rental and we are not sure of rules re skippered charter and bareback rental???

Insurance is always the killer with this. You'll need to code the boats to do this as well. Give MECAL a ring and they'll tell you everything you need to do.

PS. You mean bareboat charter not bareback rental

Keith, Firstly I can recommend Porthcawl Insurance Brokers who I believe will be able to offer a competative cover for RIB hire/ Charter

The RIBs will need to be inspected and annual inspected for coding which is done by the surveyor first year then signed as correct to same standards for three then on fifth year re-inspected for coding (carry all safety equipment and in date). Several authorising agents then issue the annual coding ticket on behalf of the MCA, Mecals have been mentioned and also I use
http://www.ydsa.co.uk/

If you need a list of what equipment is needed take a look at http://www.adecmarine.co.uk/safetycheck.asp who will e mail a full list to you for I would guess Cat 4 coding for your area but local authorities/ harbour masters do offer some restricted coding, Also Ocean Safety do the same http://www.oceansafety.com/safety-checklist.aspx (they are in Plymouth as well as Southampton)

The next issue will be if it is for bareboat charter I would seek advice about what qualifications you need to see from the client and also what deposit your insurers will ask for along with proof of who they are. Bareboat will need a very comprehensive hand over and a signed rental agreement

If completing charters with a helm then the helm will need specific qualifications and RYA will advice on this, but it covers, helm training, first aid, sea survival, and VHF plus a medical certificate. Others on this forum like Tim Griffin and Doug at Stormforce are well qualified to give you direction of what is needed.

There is another area which I dont know/understand fully, but if you are a dealer offering a test run out then there are advice areas for this but I believe they are not so involved, but most dealers expect their helms to be trained

Hope this helps.
