Hi Daniel
Yes open ribs hence night restrictions, used to have to carry a bow canopy as temp enclosure on 3R but that has been removed

Not correct, there are lots of hard boats which are category 3, but do not have the 24 hour operational limit. The 24 hour limit is added when a boat does not provide sufficient accommodation for the crew such as running water, a cooker, bunks with lee cloths and a toilet (because of course people can hold on for upto 24 hours without needing to go!!)

OAN678 from the MCA refers to Cat 3 restricted.

The matrix at the end shows what you need to have. It, thankfully, removes the "discretion" that we were encouraged to apply by Owners and is now very clear as to what is required.

When we coded 250kts RIB this matrix didn't exist, so we applied what we considered sensible conditions and then had to get individual approval from MCA - which will be why his wording may be a ;little different to standard.

"Celtic Wanderer" is coded to 3R, 20 miles daylight and 10 at night and is an open boat. To comply we have to have all persons on board wearing survival suits / dry suits with thermal protection and auto life jackets with lights, spray hoods etc. we also had to carry a secondary means of propulsion, we used aux outboard but was told by cert authority engineer that paddles would be sufficient!!!

We've just received our Cat 3 (R) 10nm certificate for "Bennan"; fairly straightforward procedure if somewhat painful on the wallet... But it does now mean that we can trundle folk around* if they miss the last ferry!




* For a small consideration...
