6.3 Freeboard: Inflatable Boats, RIBs and Boats with a Buoyant Collar
6.3.1 The freeboard of an inflatable boat or boat fitted with a buoyant collar should be not
less than 300mm measured from the upper surface of the buoyancy tubes and not less than 250mm at
the lowest part of the transom with all its equipment, fuel, cargo, activity related equipment and the
number of persons for which it is to be certificated onboard, with the boat re-trimmed as necessary to
represent a normal operating condition, and with the drainage socks(if fitted) tied up.


Thats the Atlantics shafted then!

think you need to keep reading 6.3.2 says Boats which, at the transom do not meet the freeboard requirement of Para 6.3.1, may still be accepted by the RBCA provided it can be demonstrated that the boat is self draining (i.e. it is not possible to accumulate and retain water in the boat) and that the boat has a substantial reserve of buoyancy.

one of our club memebers swears by jet drives ,,he has also converted a couple using car engines ,,,only problems he has ever encountered was picking a plaggy bag up on the way back from sunderland airshow and the same day smashing the reverse bucket/flap off when recovering on the slip ,,anyhow he picked up the peices at low water and rewelded them up, ,,we had trial one day seeing how good it was at towing another similar size boat with a prop and there was not much difference at all ,

Agreed,

Would like hamiltons but they take up a substantial amount of your inboard area.

Castoldis, great as the bolt on the back but are best suited for extremely dry boats due to sensitive electrics....

Don't know what else to go for.
