OSR Compliance
« on: March 22, 2007, 07:51:56 AM »
Just reading thru the English Guide Mini and seen this
OSR 2006 says
3.02.2 Centreboard and daggerboard trunks and the like shall not open into the interior of a hull except via a watertight inspection/maintenance hatch of which the opening shall be entirely above the waterline of the yacht floating level in normal trim.
3.02.3 A canting keel pivot shall be completely contained within a watertight enclosure which shall comply with OSR 3.02.2. Access points in the watertight enclosure for control and actuation systems or any other purpose shall comply with OSR 3.02.1.

I'm a bit confused - does this mean the keel box does or doesn't need a waterproof cover?

Does need a cover...
The same as all offshore keelboats.. some of which secure a 'boot' round the box and upper part of keel..

OSR really wants a box cover, minis stil can use plastic/rubber cover. Thank god.
