    Dear all,

    Question 1) Regarding 'Recess Size' requirement of ISO 12217-1, do you think I have to take into account quick-draining recess too for the calculation?

    If the answer is Yes, a lot of boats have to lose one or more design Category(ies).

    Question 2) Point 3.1.3 definition of 'recess'
    I think that consider a cockpit open aft to the sea as recess is a warning!
    Boats like Wally, considering the cockpit open aft as a recess, should satisfy the Recess Size'!
    Doing some calculations, Wally power wouldn't satisfy design category C!

    News about You, will be very appreciated!
