Probably along the same lines that if I were to buy a new engine for mine I would need to adhere to the recreational craft directive (or whatever it's official name is) WRT engine emmissions, as it's a recreational boat, whereas commercials (e.g fishermen etc) have a far wider choice of power plants. (e.g. "oldschool" 2- strokes) that I could only dream of.

YES. The CE plate only confirms conformity with the Recreational Craft Directive (RCD). Non-recreational craft, i.e. commercial vessels, are not required to conform.

no they are two different standards for two different purposes. The RCD is essentially for pleasure boats and is a "type approval" saying that all vessels of a particular design are OK (in theory at least!). Coding is specific to a particular vessel, and as you know a lot more detailed about equipment that must be carried. And of course the RCD/CE plate is stuck on once as it leaves the factory and confirms conformity at that time. Coding is supposed to be an ongoing/renewable process.

No, you still have to demonstrate stability etc. If the boat IS RCD certificated then some of that data may already exist and you MAY be able to use that data yourself to cut down on your own efforts.

I guess its not wasted money as if you come to sell it at the end of its commercial life then it would need RCD approved unless you wanted to restrict your market to other commercial use. I'm not sure how people are getting round this (or perhaps just turning a blind eye) for commercial Pacifics, Arctics, Deltas etc which are decommisioned and sold for private use?

Isn't if the boat has been in use for 5 years then you don't need a CE plate. I know similar rules apply for home builds.

Jono bring the debate out into the open at the clubs AGM .as a point of interest i think that safety boats for ARA rowing events (now British Rowing ) can be helmed by kids if they have a PB2 and an adult on board (not necessarily qualified adult ) .hence the two kids should definitly be paid they did the job and deserve their reward , it is morons like the person from the sailing club who put kids off of sport and work .

The club welshed on the deal!

Let the kids loose in the clubhouse!!

Or get a big chain and chain the club gates for a few hours on a Saturday morning.

Some direct action needed here.

Surely the sum only covers wear and tear and costs, therefore there was no reward. I'd take them to small claims court.

I speak from personal experience when I say that you don't need a written contract. It's about the balance of evidence.
