That's where all the rallies fall short - too much emphasis on the boat and not enough on the crew.
Wow, really? The fact that a boat like Hawk, which is to me almost the definition of a properly designed and outfitted expedition vessel, does not meet ISAF req's but that abomination that Jon showed a picture of in this thread does, tells me a lot about ISAF requirements.

I would still say they might be good guidelines, but to require them to be followed to enter a rally, should on so desire, seems rather silly to me.
