I put down that my rib was a motor craft and there is a formula somewhere on the page or in the help that was something like waterline length of craft x draft, but im not exactly sure.

I did an RYA DSC short range VHF course and they went through the proceedure, i will see if i made any notes.

I applied on-line and got one the other day - but had to phone them as well, as every time I filled in the max occupancy as 7 people the form changed it to 70! - Not quite a cruise liner but considerable more capacious than my 4.7m rib!!
