Replying to:Survey Requirements
Our RL 28 was born somewhere mid 1980 and has been maintained to 4E NSW Survey requirements since new. The Side Safety wires appear to be the same as every other RL28 that I have seen and are place so that the vertical Gap is 300mm from deck and 300mm between the top and middle wires. At this survey time (last week) the Waterways surveyor gave me a serve about the Vertical Gap being greater than 250mm as per requirements brought in in 1987. I might add that about 7 surveys have been done by inspectors since this time and nothing has ever been said. My question is twofold: 1 Does anyone have a decisive argument that I can use to get them to back down as to replace staunchions and wires will be quite expensive. 2 Does anyone have a cost effective suggestion that will meet the requirements. I have thought about drilling into the Staunchions but this will weaken them considerably. I will place netting across the Pulpit and Pushpit which is easily fixed. All comments welcome Cheers
