Jono,
I agree that they are normally inland waters and the definations are as to do with the wave height, ie wave ht above 1.2M and 2m. But i am trying to find out is the Solent Categorised water?

I think it is and as such do not go to Sea, so i do not need, at present, to be coded.

You are right that there will be a new inland waterways vessel standards, but this is not out yet, (Apr 04?).

Please do not get me wrong with regard to this as i have all the equipment that is required for codeing less the liferaft and i think it is a good thing. But having spoken to the RYA and the MCA on this, where does it say i have to code my boat?

Regards
Stuart

Searider hi,

Think you coded my Pacific 22 last July.

The "RCD Drivel" was reference to Crazyhorse and the way he managed to confuse and bore everyone to death for over a year on the RCD. Sadly on one post he mixed coding and RCD which really made a nightmare of it.

SCM, oooh good question! if you read the Forward to the code paragraph 1.4 there might be a loop hole. However it says "Exempted by the Merchant Shipping (Loadlines) (Exemption) Order 1968).

Bet that wil be swept up in the new rules.

If your going to charter her why not just go for the Coding?

Pete

Liferafts can be hired instead of purchased and the hire price includes a service. Basically after a year you get a different raft ready serviced. I have just had mine delivered from www.liferafts.com who also provide other safety equipment and their service is excellent.
Hire price calculates to about 1/5 the purchase price but this does include the annual service.

Pete: This is a thread i haven't seen for a while. As you mention it was first posted in Sept 2001 so anyone reading it please beware it is rather dated and interpretations/rules change - as Searider points out

Seb: I believe David Hickman may have a number for Jon, else call Chris at the school he bought from Jon (Salcombe Powerboat School) as i recollect David said he freelances down that way

SCM/Stuart: My understanding regarding the Solent is that is that you can 'locally code' under some local authority arrangement which isn't as onerous as full coding. That said everyone I know coded there codes fully as they feel it is better/safer. H20Events & Wavehumper will know far more than i do. Then all you need to do is beat the other 200 coded RIBs to get the charter work!

Paul

rib hire

I looked into hiring a rib when I fancied a day on the water. I have been quoted 400 to 700 a day, so I dont do it.
Nick.
