You can now get CE marking done in the us - about 1/4 the price of certian "companies" in the UK who charge 2000...

Err no, you don't....... If that was the case you wouldn't be able to import it into the country.

It's all very confusing, and at times seems utter bo***x.Quite a few companies now offer an RCD package in the States, for not alot of money, although companies like CE Proof in the UK aren't that expensive. I've just been quoted 1400 by them to "CE" a 28 foot yankee sportscruiser. I can't really understand how they go about it though.

How for example, could a boat be post build certificated by a 3rd party without the relevant build log, batch no's etc. If your a builder your supposed to take temp and humidity reading twice a day in the w/shop, yet you can for example have a totally unknown 10 year old boat built overseas Ce'd for a couple of grand! Also, if you do a home build, it's exempt, although you can't sell it for 7 years (that may be less now, haven't been to a recent seminar)
