    CE Certification

    Fishingaz,
    Your reference is to the Certificate of Conformity (Recreational Craft Directive) that the boatbuilder must supply with all new boats.
    As the CE regulations are mainly self certificated by each boat builder then he will state the parts of the RCD that apply to his boats in '6632 0048 A 09 RCD'. Hope this helps.

    Cheers

    mate I stand to be corrected, but for class c,d, there are no stabilty tests, only b and and your boat si too short to get either b or a
    in nz, for charter they would do and incline test, I used to load with sand bags and the man from the ministry would come and check that looks like mooloolaba lauries marina?

    Clearly, the hull is designed for shallow water work, meaning it may not be as well suited to deep water efforts as others, particularly those geared toward this task. Contact the designer.
