Delta

Manos,

Delta's website : www.deltapower.co.uk however they made a decision a couple of years ago to concentrate on the commercial market and do not therefore get CE approval of their boats so can't sell you one. Leastways not as a private customer.

Buy it through a company and I imagine thats a different story.

Cheers,
Alan

That is a great boat Manos if you want any info in getting it through rcd catergories email me.

You will have to conform to a lot of criteria,but I feel it will be mostly in compliance.If it has jets in it then its all down to what you want to use the boat for.IE application.I have to say I do like it.

RCD

Crazyhorse,

would you happen to know what the formula is for max hp on ribs.

It's something like: length in metres x beam in metres x ? - ? = max power in KW, any ideas.

Good point Dirk,

I do know I had a problem with my insurance who would not cover a rib with a 6.5 mtr with 200hp engine on the back.

Its a good question and before one buys a rib check out weathere you can get 1st offshore insurance cover 2nd that its ok for the insurance mans hp ratings.

Not sure on smaller boats what the rcd or mac requirments are.?

There is a formula and if you wing it then so be it.The insurance man just will not pay out.

Max HP

Just spoke to a mate of mine who builds boats, the formula for Max hp on a rib is as follows:

Length in metres X Width in metres X 10 - 33 = Max power in KW

For Sportsboats it is:

Length in metres X Width in metres X 16 - 67 = Max power in KW

These means that you can have more power in a sportsboat than a rib of similar size, even allowing for the narrower beam of a sportsboat.

-33

It's just part of the formula. Don't forget this all originated from Brussels, and what the hell do they know. I suspect it's jobs for the boys.

As for the Scorpion and similar boats, who knows.

If the formula is correct, and I've no reason to suspect otherwise, then boats like the 9.5 metre Scorpion with twin 300hp outboards are grossly overpowered.

I wouldn't like to try to make an insurance claim on that one.

In english What im saying is that recomendations for products that we have also own should be thought about very carfully,as sometimes our enthusiasm can dull our focus and some may feel a loyalty to supporting there palls views when it could cost you and him a lot of money and others, as being the bearer of bad new is not always percieved with the right intent.

Sometimes.
