Coding - 60 Miles Offshore

How can these guys get a 60 mile code on a open rib?

Good question Jono. Without some sort of covered cabin for passengers, I don't see how the boat can be 60nm coded.

It does make me wonder though - people have crossed the Atlantic in an open Ocean Dynamics RIB but you can't use it 60 miles offshore!!!

With the major improvements in foulies these days maybe they should look at things again. After all most yachtsmen steer from outside!!!
