I'd be more worried by the kid sitting on the bow tube.

Well there is a thread on here somewhere discussing just that. As I recall there were mixed views, but it appears that those operating in the Solent (at least) are not typically coded - there are several people doing this.

Have you noticed that it looks like mostly the same group and helm in the Scorpion and Ribcraft?

I wonder these are test drives from a sales / brokerage outlet?

If so, that raises to me a wider range of issues re risk assessment and liability. Also if that's the case, what a shocking example to show to people buying a boat.

But maybe it's more important to look cool... Like the stud muffin in the Humber :o) http://www.boatphotos.co.uk/120726-h...wt7a9671#photo
