shouldn't really affect coding as RCD is not required for commercial use.

Thats OK if I see any more twaddle I'll let you know ... I would check with an insurer but as its my job to arrange this sort of cover for commercial clients (local Mercury dealer etc and boat builders etc ) I wont bother ...

So an example - you are out cruiseing and the weather turns bad - in order to get to a safe haven you have no choice but to carry on ..... does your insurance 'become invalid' - no I think not ..... enough said . I'm going boating now....

To Polwart: Yes, no insurer will cover you if you cruise on a boat not suitable for a particular sea condition. For your information, even if something happens to one of your crews, the skipper of the boat must be able to prove (to the court) that he has taken all necessary measures to prevent it. The key thing is to prove that the vessel was capable of that particular sea condition!

A class C is not supposed to go far from the shore as it is classed as Inshore.

If you don't believe me, check with your insurer!! simple!

So what about boats built before the RCD came into place.
You really are talking bollocks, if your insured to go 20 miles offshore and its flat calm but you have an RCD C craft does that mean your not covered because your not inshore.....

the choice of category is purely down to the builders how low they put it. The lower the category the less onerous the inspection regime is. RCD is intended purely for the free movement of goods within the EC. Just like toys, electrical equipment, machinery etc etc etc. However no doubt some insurers will latch onto it when they think they can use it to their advantage
