Coding requirements

No doubt asked before but there is so much to wade through.....

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.

Are you going for local codeing or MCA coding. If you look there is a tread that give the MCA doc number, just need to read it. Most things alot of people would put on a decent sized rib anyway, e.g twin batteries. Liferafts is the expensive part.

The difference betwen local and MCA coding i found was little

..apart from just plain laughing..like t'other Jono.. the first thing you might want to look at is your fuel delivery system.. are the pipes the right spec. etc... before you go too much further with the build.... We(Jono, Ian and myself) have seen Prosports without "proper" fuel pipe... Jason should have sorted this by now though... but as your boat was laid down such a long time ago.. you might want to have a good before you go to far.. what's the tank made of?

Well he has built a few coded boats now!!!

They are fibreglass tanks - 2 of them. Boat was laid down ages ago but finishing work etc done recently.

What exactly is the score with this freeboard thing??? I bet it varies considerably in the way the surveyors interprate it - some boats don't even have transoms do they???

Splendid... so all the pipes are marked as the right grade, including the vent/fill pipes and they're all routed properly. That's a good start then.

Hopefully not - with a bit of luck they will be made in the same way as underground filling station tanks - many of which are now fibreglass!!!
