Pacific 22 commercial coding

Hi
I am trying to get a Pacific 22 coded and hope someone out there might have the stability data and swamp test data. It is a Victoria built boat so I don't know if they were any different from the halmatic ones.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Work going on! why 'o' why were brass screws used to hold down the ply covers?? When they all shear off when trying to take them out. Will one large hatch across the back work??

Leg ready for priming - eventually

Which organisation are you using as the coding authority? When I coded my P22 in 2003 I used YDSA so if you use them they should have the documentation on file under the boat name of "Old Spice".

Howver, it wasn't a drama to do the stability test in accordance with the yellow book (MGN 280) and use live bodies to sit and move around the boat with the tubes inflated and deflated etc.

This gives more information as does the MCA website (MGN 280).

Use a piece of Ali chequer plate across the stern with a hatch in it, much easier and change the exhaust hose before you seal it down.

A bit late now but it's much easier to just crowbar the deck off then use a bolt extractor mounted in a cordless drill to remove the screws left behind

Thanks for that - I'll see how I go on with the YBDSA.
I think I'm going to make an ali hatch that cover all three compartments at the back, so access to the whole back end is easier. Ric

I surveyed Old Spice for Pete for MCA coding and took the view that with the very low original transom the boat didn't swamp.

No problems for coding stability wise.

Thanks for that -
Unfortunately someone started the coding process and the transom has been raised. It seems most surveyors go by the book and require the correct height of transom above the waterline, unable to make a measured decision based on the history of the boat. I feel it has made the boat less safe, as she will hold a huge amount of water, all of which now has to drain out of the drains rather than over the transom. Ho hum.

It seems sensible to to the full on the water tests as the whole seating and helm positions have been changed from the original.

Hi Ric,

If the boat is different from "standard" or pete7s "Old Spice", then yes - you need to carry out the swamp test.

I would suggest you call some of the surveyors in your area and find one who has experience of carrying out swamp tests. It needn't be as traumatic as it sounds.

Hi
I had mine coded by Mecal and there was a bit of an issue with the free board, that was until the suveyor contacted His boss and they then measured from the top of the engine box, i was told it was because the engine box is classed as sealed

Pacific 22 commercial coding

Thanks for that Ian - Mecal started the coding process and it was their surveyor that required a transom extension that has brought it up to the height of the engine compartment. Plus new tube drains had to be made rather than the originals, these reduced the drain area by 2/3rds. So I've now removed them and am fitting gasketed hinged flaps to open them up to a better size.

Out of interest, how many were/are you coded for and did it take long to get on the plane. Plus how did you get round the emergency steering bit. I plan to fit a by-pass on the pipes and somehow fit a tiller to the top of the leg!
