Hello all!
A friend of mine has been busy for some time to refresh his Prindle 16. For registration purposes all he needs now is a certificate or declaration of conformity. He has some trouble finding one. Does anyone know where or how he can obtain one (in any language). Or is anybody willing, possessing such certificate, to provide me with a copy so I can transmit?
Thanks for the help!

It's a document or a type approval issued by the builder stating the seaworthiness of the boat. I'm not sure whether this document is needed all over the world but you need in France in order to register the boat on your name.
In this case the document would state that the catamaran is a class D: seaworthy for coastal sailing up to 2 miles with winds up to 6Bf and swell up to 2 metres.
Don't know if the correct English term is 'certificate of conformity' but hope that above gives a better idea of what I'm looking for. Thanks for the help (and your question).

I think you mean the so called: declaration of conformity.
In which the manufacturer conforms to the directives and standards as specified. (like the E.E.C. in Europe)

But I don't think that this paper exists for the Prindle cats. Prindle as a trademark doesn't exist anymore and in the past this conformity papers were not yet necessary.

There is a small chance that you can ask for that declaration at the office of NACRA sailing International (who, I think, inherited Prindle). They are located in Scheveningen (Den Hague, my country Holland). You find them on internet. You can always mention my name and this forum as an entry, ask for Bas).

Bon chance.

That's indeed the problem and that's why I'm wondering whether I'll be able to find it...
Already contacted Bas at Nacra, he's going to have a look but was doubtful concerning the existence...

Bedankt! wink

You're screwed if you are in France. You can't register an old boat without papers anymore. That's part of the reason I sold mine…

As a last resort, maybe you could get some type of Prindle Association in another country (USA?) to fill out the document based on an example document you would provide to them? Then you could submit it and hope you get a bureaucrat that will decide it is acceptable. -Why another country? It is more likely to be considered an expert opinion, and if something about the document is considered fishy, what can the French government do about it?
