Coding a Pacific 22 - easy?

I know there are lots of coded Pac22s about, but is this because they lend themselves to it or because people like their workhorse characteristics?

I always thought it was because they're cheap for what you get on the use market

I am going through coding an Artic 28 with Inboard diesel at the moment, although built for the military, they have there own rules and not everything you need but a good boat to start from. surveyors all have different opinions on interprting the rules, have a chat with them before you comit to using them or get a recommendation from someone in your area who has done similar.

how many are you planning to carry

Both I think. Halmatic have already done lots of work for an owner towards coding which you only tend to realise when you start getting deep into the regulations which saves a load of agro. They are also comparatively cheap, how many other 6.5m diesel ribs can you buy for 10k ?

Final throught, they have a concave hull shape which is akin to a semi displacement hull. This makes them good at rest if you are working and comfortable when it's really rough and you are down to a crawl speed. The reason they are able to plane is there is a huge planning wedge under the keel generating lift.
