When i did my coding, you will find that local or MCA is clear. Local is easy as there is usually a simple list to follow , Most local coding comes the MCA document, The MCA document is not that long but you must remember it caters for different CATs.
If you print it out and read it over a couple of nights and hightlight what you need to check /install it then becomes a case of getting and fitting the bits.
My liferaft is fitted near the bow seat with a hydrostatic fuse (what the other guys have mentioned).
Alot of the bits you would fit anyway being a sensible ribber
i dont run my boat as a business, just the odd charter for companies (friends who are sea schools) that have wanted help
Boatless - better get down the pub and drown my sorrows
