Do pro sport make underground filling station tanks?

Make sure pro sport give you a ISO10088 certificate for your fuel tank

Pot the black calling the kettle

If I remember rightly you had or stiill have a Shakespeare which you were partly responcible for the build. You know the one Jono, where you have to put the full fuel cans of Petrol up in the locker up front to get the boat to plane, the one with the A-frame looked as if it had been made from scaffold poles bent over the edge of your work bench (now thats what you call a right angle), seat pods made of blocks of foam covered in black plastic with no supports and the finish of it ouch need I go on.

Funny enough we just had a survey done on one of the last boats we built, (twin Volvo D3 160s, 46 knots and turns like its on rails with full hydraulic steering to) and when we were half way through the float test the surveyor was very impressed. Passed that with flying colours.

So coding a Pro sport is fine and if yours passed then Vince has nowt to worry about.

Dom,

T'other Jono is a little less diplomatic than me, but there's no need to "go on one". All you needed to do was confirm that Prosport now use the correctly marked fuel pipe for supply, fill and vent and that the correct resin/construction is used in the tanks. This would suffice. The boats supplied to the "North Wales" crew had to have their pipes changed as they wouldn't meet code and the in built fuel tank had a problem. These boats were supplied about two years ago and no doubt you/Jason have put things right by now.

As for seats made of foam blocks... I'm not sure which boat you mean, but the ones I saw had Shakespeare's own seat units and "A" frame with upholstery by Mastertrim.......

Jono

Hes correct on this one on the Yellow boat for a while there was foam block on the seats when we were testing different closed cell foams as certain manufactuers dont use close cell foam and seats fill with water.

I thinks ive got some pics somwhere of the different foams, still i have lots of pics on my PC, i would have to look through them all and dig them out.

If reading though all the commercial coding stuff on Ribnet is daunting then I am not sure you are really committed to this, which you need to be. Rules are strick and quite rightly so. You will have to burn the midnight oil, delving into lots of regulations in the various publications which are available through HMSO.

Can I suggest you review your business plan and look at all the costs, not just the boat but also getting yourself trained up to the required standard and setting up as a business.

You should then be able to forecast when you will break even and see if its financially worth doing and subjecting your pride and joy to all the additional wear and tear.

Pete

What sort of equipment is a RIB supposed to have built in for coding?

What I mean is stuff like twin batteries - bilge pumps etc rather than loose equipment like liferafts.
Codders - there's a link to the code on this page of my website:
