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.

I don't mind reading through rules when they are specific and to the point - the problem is - like almost every other rule or law they are badly written and open to interpretation.

Obviously most of the basics are the same but it seems to me different surveyors have different ideas!!!

I used the Yellow code book from the HMSO to do mine (pre merged codes). I thought most of it was quite clear. Didn't agree with some of it, like the need for a barometer, but never the less quite specific.

So how long does it take your business plan to forecast a break even point after spending 2k on bringing the boat up to a coded specification?

Mr Cod

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

I must admit that I've always found it easier to have a SCV2 form and check/cross reference it with the code. It means that you can read and apply what is relevent for your boat.
