Hi,

I've recently completed this for my RIB. So yes, RIBs do belong in the motorboat category. If you use the online application then it gives you the following equation for tonnage ;

Gross tonnage refers to the total enclosed space or internal capacity of the vessel. If you do not know the exact tonnage, please estimate the approximate volume using: (length(m) x width(m) x height(m)) 4 or (length(ft) x width(ft) x height(ft)) 100

For height I used 1m as it seemed a bit of a guess on a RIB. Using the distance from the keel to the top of the a-frame seemed wrong.

Hope this helps.

PS - this has worked ok for my last two boats so hopefully it's right. Or I suppose they just don't check.
