ISO 12215-6:2008 concerns structural details and structural components not explicitly included in ISO 12215-5, ISO 12215-7, ISO 12215-8 and ISO 12215-9. It applies to monohull and multihull small craft constructed from fibre reinforced plastics (FRP), aluminium or steel alloys, wood or other suitable boat building material, with a hull length, in accordance with ISO 8666, of up to 24 m.
ISO 12215-6:2008 fulfils two functions. Firstly, it supports ISO 12215-5 by providing further explanations and calculation procedures and formulae. Secondly, it gives a number of examples of arrangements and structural details which illustrate principles of good practice. These principles provide a standard against which alternative arrangements and structural details can be benchmarked, using the equivalence criteria specified in ISO 12215-6:2008.
