I would think if the ce marking gives a maximum hp then that's all you can legally do!

Sent from my GT-S5830 using Rib.net

The rib.net lawyers are out!

Nothing illegal in the UK about using a rib beyond its CE mark. The CE mark tells you what is 'safe'.

Now your insurance might have an opinion.

Any warranty is likely to be void.

If you kill someone expect the inquiry to ask a lot of questions.

You may reduce your resale value.

As you aren't in the UK I can't say if it has any legal implications? Are Ribs registered in Malta?

Perhaps obvious to you but in the UK we have no registration for pleasure boats under some very large size that dont leave UK waters.

In which case you'd probably want to check with the registration authority.

Can some one tell me if there is anything that I can do to convince my outority that I can install the motor and not observe the CE certification. Any ideas because here in Malta is like I will be the only one that is not observing the ce certification. In malta we have ribs and boats starting from 16ft with 200hp and 18ft with 300hp. And my survior reportet me as I have instaled the yamaha F100 on my 16ft rib as it have ce certification for 60hp. I am more than sure that my rib will hold the yamaha F100. Any ideas I have tride contacting CE my boat but they can't help me

100 hp on a 60 hp rated 16ft RIB sounds a bit aggressive to me...

Who's telling you you "can't" put a bigger engine on? Besides mayb common sense...

I would suggest that you try and get a letter from the RIB manufacturer stating that they're happy with you sticking a 100hp motor on the back. That's what an insurance company asked me to obtain when I was thinking about fitting a 175 on the back of a rib rated for 150.
