Was that on Sat 31st ?

If it was I remember seeing you come round from Exmouth way.
You went right in under Hopes Nose for the afternoon.

We were on the beach under the big house that looks over the Nose
One of the best days this year I think

Well cooked when we got home

Dave - I think I saw your boat down at St Mary when I was over there working on "On a clear day" with Mike Keegan - we had Hog Tails, Mikes boat and a couple of others from there including the newly windscreened boat belonging to George! Not forgetting Deano's dive boat which we wrecked the gearbox of on the last day!

Hogtails filming the jellyfish scene (you had to be there!)

Mike Keegans RIB

some of the 7 boat fleet (Deano is towing the camera boat - the T.U.)

Filming using the crane and stabilised remote camera head

TQBoater , indeed that would have been us on the 31st. We had come from Ladram Bay, a few miles further along the coast from Exmouth


Dave B, lifejackets, often an emotive subject. I welcome and respect your views and hope you will mine.

All on board were adults.
There were fully automatic life jackets available on board for all POB.

There are times on a boat when I wear a lifejacket and times when I don't. When on somebody eles's boat I'll respect there views/wishes.

An acomplished solo round the world sailor once told me they did not wear a lifejacket for they would rather die quickly than slowly if they fall into the cold waters miles from anywhere!

I'm not planning on falling in miles from anywhere, though do recognize that accidents happen. The day may come when I regret not having been wearing a life jacket rather than simply having one available to me, then so may the day I wish I never boarded the plane or crossed the road.


BatFalcon ... to be boating in Greece in the warm weather and flatish seas would be lovely. I lived not in Greece but Cyprus many years ago and still have happy memories of boating in the warmer climate,

Life Jackets

Tested Mine Last Weekend,whislt Attempting To Tie Off My Bow Line To Another Rib In Mylor Marina Fell Headfirst Overboard Over The Bow Of The Adjacent Rib.my Wife Was Tieing Off The Stern And Didnot Realise That I Was Missing!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Caught My Arm Briefly On A Rope As I Fell ,as I Surfaced The Life Jacket Went Off And I Was Bobbing About Red Faced Between The Rib And The Pontoon!!!!!!!!!!
A Couple Aged In The Mid Sixties Came To My Rescue ,i Warned Them Off, Stating That I Was Rather Heavy - On The Count Of Three I Was Out And Dripping.

On A Serious Note ,i Had Decided To Abandon My Trip Back To Plymouth From Falmouth Due To The Terrible Weather Conditions,i Had Decided To Berth My Boat At Mylor Marina Where The Boat Was Safe For The Night.
There Was A Slight Swell Inside The Marina The Adjacent Rib,s Bow Was Slightly Higher Than Mine And The Bow Eye Was Slightly Lower Obviously By Reaching Further Than I Was Expecting To And The Sudden Pitching Of The Boat Was Enough To Tip Me In.
Lesson Learnt, I Think I Will Keep Wearing My Life Jacket!!!!!

Just a quick word on lifejackets. If you are not wearing a lifejacket on a boat less than 7 metres in Ireland you are breaking the law.

Quote:
The new law makes the wearing of lifejackets compulsory on board any boat of seven metres or less. In addition, a lifejacket or personal flotation devices must be carried on every vessel regardless of size. The new law came into force at the beginning of June 2004.

The main provisions of the draft regulations provide that :

A lifejacket/ personal floatation device is carried on board for each person (irrespective of the size of craft)

Everyone on board a craft less than 7.0 metres (23 feet) in length must wear a lifejacket/ personal floatation device

Every child less than 16 years of age must wear a lifejacket/ personal floatation device at all times while on deck when the craft is underway
I completely agree with this law, but that of course is IMHO.
