Certification

Hi Marios

Conforming to category B of the RCD is pretty tough, i have the documents for what is required ..... drop tests etc. We have built a few sets of tubes for Vessels that fall in to Cat. B.
There is a company in Poole, Dorset called Sorceror which i believe can build you an appropriate vessel. if yu are interested i'll see if i can find you a contact

Could you give us an indication of waht is needed. I am quite interested as some boats get the coding and some don't. What is the criteria and how much does the stability upsidedown effect it.

Thanks

David

Sure, i'll have to be careful as this document is copyrighted and costs a bit to order. I've got it at home at the mo (light reading on the bog) , i'll bring it in tomorrow or try and post something later

Here we go

Marios there is no ribs with a cat A ce mark at the moment.

Can you let us now which ribs are advertised as cat B that turn out to be cat C?

Codeing is for work boats and not for leisure craft.The two things are very different beasts.

Drop tests are to justifie a vessel strength,also used where builder cant prove the strength of the structure but can with a drop test results.

Work boat criteria is changing more inline with RCD stability iso 12217 stability tests.

See work boat link,

http://www.mcga.gov.uk/consultation/...ssel/index.htm

And a RCD link http://europa.eu.int/comm/enterprise...lines_2002.pdf

Enjoy

It is the case though that on an advanced powerboat ticket you are only allowed to carry a max of 12. I think. Please correct if this is wrong.
