I need to find out the % Buoyancy for the Bayliner Rendezvous when manufactured. I know they use balsa wood when building the Rendezvous which gives it a certain percentage buoyancy.
I want to sell the boat but with new South African Safety regulations I need to have a buoyancy certificate.
I cannot find a dealer in South Africa. Please advise if you know anyone who can help.

I doubt you will find any such number unless you are able to track down one of the original engineers for the boat.

And Balsa wood would be a first on that size boat. I would double check your source for that.

Balsa wood deck, Matt. After all the Rendezvous was a DECK boat.

Hopes this helps in it is said or even meant for calculation.
So if I understand it's back to our friend Archimedes?

Couldn't read much as I am going for Birthday drinks at friends who live opposite our home! :D
