Does the hull have a Hull Identification Number HIN on it, probably on the transom?

If so it may be possible to get year of manufacture. The year could be useful to determine if it predates the CE mark rules.

I think a BWM Deepsea 18 will have been built before CE marking was required for boats - 18 June 1998.

Yes but I have no document which allows to register the boat (size, length, builder(manufacturer), persons on board, maximum power) here is or is my problem, in France and in Belgium they are more annoying that at your home(with you), if a piece of information is missing it restores you your file(case) and your revener later!

Vincent,

I have searched some old threads out for you to look at.

I used to own a Deepsea 17 (which was 18' long). Great starter RIB, but has limitations in rougher conditions. I never felt unsafe in mine and had water inside up to the tube tops, always felt stable! Mine had a few cracks in the gel coat, but these IMO were age related and never seemed to get any worse.

Good luck in your quest to find any sort of documentation. There isn't any that I know of.

BWM story!

Sea Trial???
