Yes they will have, I did not however need them for local authority coding. If the organisation you use to code the boat have already coded an off the shelf Ribeye 785 you probably will not need stability paperwork.
If you need stuff like that talk to John at Ribeye Dartmouth, he is keen to get more of the 785s into charter.
Insurance wise I donít do bareboat on the Ribs so cant recommend, my yachts are on bareboat through Heath Lambert.
Stating names at inception of policy does seem to contradict with how bareboat charter would operate, try dealing with Porthcrwal directly, I am not with them but found them helpful when I was last shopping around, a few of my customers are with them.
If you are only going to be dealing with a couple of drivers a year then just add them as you go, I have never heard of a policy that you can not make interim amendments to as required, although there may be a small charge each time you do. I add and remove boats from my insurance almost monthly, some times I pay; sometimes they are fine with it. A friendly competitor of mine has to send her insurers the CV of every skipper that works on her boats. They have a couple of time said no or asked for more details. When I filled in for her for a corporate day once as a favour last minute (literally 15 minutes notice) due to another skipper cancelling last minute there was a right fuss to get my CV to the insurer and get an OK from them before I could slip the dock.
