Hi Guys

i have got a silly question regarding the seaworthy of a vessel.

My jetski is currently rated for Cat e (1 Nm). All the safety gear in place.

It is time for new flares If I should get a cat C flare set and have a VHF radio installed it would Pass to get rated as Cat D (5Nm)

Now here is the question. For cat C you do not need pencil flares. For Cat E you must have pencil flares. So should i Get a Cat C flare kit without a VHF radio. will my jetski pass its COF with default to Cat E?

Reason for asking is at a later stage I will get my Radio and willing to have the cof done again when that time comes. Not willing to pay R900 now for extra pencil flare set(mine will expire end of this month). but willing to pay R 1000 for full cat C flare kit. and it will save me from buying a new flare kit in future.
