The big changes for RCD happened in October 2002 re stability criteria.Some builders brought craft out into the market real quick so they could get them passed with a B CE mark so that they can used Offshore withought having to pass these new rules and standardes.

I did not want this as we wanted the best stability criteria we coud get, so we are judged against the new rules of iso 12217 standardes.Im happy as i believe in putting everything you can in your favour.but it just costs you a fortune.

If your boat is Old B ce mark eg pre Oct 2002 then I am of the opinion that when the surveyors meet up with it in the future then the problems with restrictions may be placed on the craft and this could affect its resale value.

Who knows you have to jump in at some time.

Crazyhorse,
I see, what material is it being built in? is it fully welded, part weld/rivett, and who is the designer?

Crazyhorse,
Don't be so defensive! I'm only interested, I've had some experience with ally race boats, so the construction is something I can relate to, and of course the designer may be someone i've never heard of, but you never know! obviously it's a planing hull, but that's all we all know at this stage, what type of planing hull would you describe it as?

Im not being defensive,

Im just that Im interested in your experiances of ali

The designers live over 7000 miles away so your unlikley to know them personaly.

You mentioned your friend builds boats and they jointly got the rcd ce markes together,Which company is that and what are there boats

They dont specialise in mass produced boats.

its a deep V 26 degrees aprox.

Crazyhorse,
My word, that really is deep!, is that the deadrise at the transom?
does it have a constant deadrise or does it have any warp in it? lots of forefoot or only a little?
so is the designer well known?

The designers are not well known in the U.K or Europe but are highly respected in there own country.

Its warped and the figures are aprox give or take a few degrees?

Thats at the transom I think?

Its a specialist market.

I dont want to upset you Jon but this raceing and speed thing puts me to sleep.

I am looking at cruising real slow and enjoying the scenary.

Thats what Im all about not buzzing about for half a day and then paying over a big lump of money at the end of it.

I like my comfort and enjoy cruising and different places.Not bothered how long it takes within reason.
