RCD - wot's that? Er...and tanks.

Well, thank you for explaining that RCDirective. The sort of Euro rule like that which specifies common dimensions for cucumbers and bans Windward Islands bananas for being too short. Useful. No doubt.

JF - even with it's very limited experience, to my eye your tank layout looks excellent. Better than mine.

RCD

CH

Sorry if it's already covered on here somewhere....

Is the Irish Sea considered offshore or coastal...I remember from a conversation with my insurance broker that my ribs covered as far south as a line drawn from Lands End to somewhere in Ireland...but not thinking I'd get that far, I didn't really look at where in Ireland!

Any ideas?

JW

Earth Calling Crazyhorse

Crazyhorse exactly which planet are you on?

On the 19th you said "fit out regs" Exactly what are these regs then, I am sure we would like to know as several of us are currently fitting out ribs at this moment and perhaps we should read them.

As for "RCD World" precisely what stops you going down to Lymington and buying 50k of Scorpion, then driving off to sea ? I am starting to think you are in favour of a United States of Europe, with lots of rules to govern us by and those with non RCD boats ? well they must not be allowed out of a harbour incase a F2 wave sinks them.

We are lucky to live with so few rules although reading some of Wavelengths recent posts perhaps there should be regulations, however we have discussed this before so I won't go there.

JW was quite right when he said you do go on about the RCD a bit. However my main concern is that new members to this forum may think you speak from years of rib experience and take you at your word. Please, please, if you are going to say something that looks like factual information make sure its correct.

Pete

I wouldn't worry about RCD too much. In a world where everyone agrees that you can't legislate that a boat carries lifejackets or is insured. I don't see how the RCD directive can affect us ribbers who already own boats.

Neither can I see the RCD regulations being retroactive, you can't make 99 % of boats illegal. I can't see it molesting insurance too much. The brokers can't walk away from 99% of their market can they! I suspect they will put on a surcharge but most of us could begrudgingly afford it. It will be cheaper than buying a new boat.

If I was involved in boat manufacturing then I'd guess i'd start looking at them.


Right then I am off too find a bunch off Straight Bananas.

It ws bumpy out there again today I wish the waves were regulated, ah but then it wouldn't be so much fun, would it

To get back on the original subject of the thread how often are you thinking of going to these far away places
