So Crazyhorse,
Looks like what you were saying to me a few weeks ago about my boat isn't strictly true! maybe I'm the only guy on here who actually knows his boat isn't CE marked, and everybody else just thinks there's are, but they're actually not! I don't think much of that

Well john I do hate being the bearer of the bad news but there are some who think it will be no problem but I believe it will be for them.

If they dont want to know then so be it.it isnt my problem.

ce conforming

Isn't there some exemption if the boat is a self build, and it's not put up for sale for a number of years after completion. 7 years ring a bell, but why it should be ok after then is a mystery.

Crazyhorse,
It's not really news of any sort for me, good, bad or indifferent, my boat was built for me by phantom and delivered as a "bare boat" the onus was allways on me with this one with regards to rcd, to be honest, the more I look at it, and all the boats at the show's that clearly wouldn't pass the most basic parts of the tests(and that includes a lot of the big names) I think it's all bo****ks! time will tell I geuss

Exactly who sets this limit? Or is this just another of your little wind ups?

As far as I am aware, it is up to each individual manufacturer to asses the limits of their boats. So long as the power is within the manufacturer's recommended range then there should be no insurance implications.

I agree that some of it is nonesence and that some boats up for sale in my opinion are realy lacking.

But as far as stability criteria go Im all for it as In my opinion the Trade needs a good kick up the back side as they could sell you any old dog of a boat with engines on it.

Some were unsafe in my opinion Iso 12217 gives you a real definable guide line to whats realistick from your boat Stability capabilities.If you note not many builders are offering a copy of the GZ curves out in the literature.

As we know its then down to us as owners to be realistick about our experiance and conditions we encounter.
