Our Ribcraft came with handbooks for the boat, electronics, trailer, engine...all wrapped up in a RC logo-ed briefcase. Nice

Sorry, couldn't resist.

I have a 1998 Ocean 6.5 that had been abused so badly I had to strip it back to a bare hull and tubes when I brought it 7 years ago and start from scratch.

If it ever had a CE plate, which I doubt back then, it's long gone.
All I have is a serial number moulded in to the transom which a kind previous owner decided to drill a hole in the middle of

Windsor Brothers answer to every question I've ever asked starts with "er, about......" and so many different people have built their tubes over the years they will not commit to a serious answer, hence trying to work it out for myself.

Oh, and the only paperwork that came from the dealer with the boat, engine and non-working electrics was a receipt and a promise to 'bugger off' rapidly if they saw me coming back

A Boat is a hole in the water, surrounded by fibreglass, into which you throw money...
