Perhaps fairer to say cannot be confirmed for 2006 Suspect that the matter is likely to be overtaken by the insurers who are showing distinct signs that they are not prepared to wait and will require a BSS if you want them to stay on risk.

I heard a similar assertion recently, Steve but can't confim whether it's true or not. I might ask the Boulters guys when I'm next down.

The BSS safety regs are more or less in place now apparently but I do know that there is talk of more environmental issues being addressed in the BSS in the future. Things like having to fit 'grey water' tanks...for waste washing water, shower water etc rather than it being released directly in to the rivers. Now there's a money-spinner eh?

Also, filters on bilge pump outlets to prevent diesel or oil contaminants entering the rivers. There was also serious talk of a ban on the pumping of raw sewage into the system by some of the sailing boats. Not a bad thing IMHO.  Some tighter degree of boat exhaust noise reduction will probably come into force too...also not a bad thing. Unfortunately, our twin Pentas can growl a bit sometimes so we'll be caught by that one! Can see the pound signs dancing again!

Guess there's gonna be loads of environmental tighten ups before too long. Fair enough, we all want the system to be protected...as long as we aren't been taken for a ride by money-making schemes to recoup the revenue being lost on reduced hire bookings.

For people for whom fitting a tray under the engine is a near impossiblity and fitting of filters to the bilge discharge is an acceptable alternative as long as the capacity of the filter is large enough. The only problem is that this could still mean you have smelly slops under floor boards so you might want to sub divide the bilge and have two pumps with the filter on the one in the engine compartment

Would you care to name the Insurance companies "who are showing distinct signs that they are not prepared to wait" ?
What are these signs? Surely they would be advising their Policy Holders.
By the way, are you a BSS examiner, Bill? You seem particularly well informed.

When I want your advice, my wife'll give it to you!

Finally got our BSC last month. As with many others, It was the insurers who pushed us in that direction.

A little off topic, but it might help some. We have a BMC 1.5 and a Velvet Drive on the boat. Our drip tray cost less than a fiver, from B&Q. It's their largest seed tray and it fits perfectly.

Unfortunately, the engine had to be lifted to get it under, which cost a bit more than a fiver!

That's the crunch isn't it...getting the things in place!

Reminds me of head gasket replacement...£5 worth of part and £500 to get to it to replace it!

So if you fit a drip tray unter the engine AND theengine has to be lifted, hoe do you get the tray out when it is full?????

Seems a bit strange to me unless I,m missing something??

Paul,

You use the same device you suck your used engine oil out with.

The idea is to have something to stop any leaked oil or fuel finding its way into the main bilge and getting pumped straight out into the river by the bilge pump. My brother has a horizon and this will need a drip tray. Luckily my aston has the engine bilge sealed more or less so any leaks or spills are contained. Providing it leaks no more than about 5 gallons Frown  otherwise it will overflow into the main bilge.

Regards

Paul H
