If it seems like a pointless post to you Peter, then it's because you have failed to see the point, not that there isn't one.

If your crew are on the Lulworth (private) pontoon and manage to hurt themselves on something, will your insurance cover this - or will your insurance company pursue their's for it? How could the Lulworth operator tell that you are insured as you approach? I may not be an insurance broker, but I've certainly enough experience dealing with insurance companies and courts to see how badly insured parties are treated by the system when it come to claims.

No, I haven't been there - although I experience a hint of deja vu anyway when the subject resurfaces. Insurance and terms of usage are their prime concerns - and yes, I do know that they are not permitted (for insurance reasons) to allow anyone else land or depart the pontoon. I understand that they can be fairly rude to anyone attempting to use the facility. I can only speculate that by the time the tenth smug, excuse laden, self entitled boat owner that day attempts to use their property against their express wishes, patience is wearing thin.

I don't have to be "nice" to you Peter - I just have to be reasonably polite. I'll have to struggle on without your "niceness" or "helpfulness" on the water for a bit longer. Now, shall I put a big tray on the floor to catch your rattles again when they come flying?

I'll bring my dingy, I can do some ferry service to get people ashore. I would warn you that we refer to it as the dingy of death and are convinced it is possessed! This is based on the number of times it has caused injuries both afloat and when stored at home.

Still, the offer stands for those brave enough!

I haven't been in there for a while. I need to get my head round this pontoon thing. Is the pontoon private or public? If there is no firing on the range you could all go into warbarrow bay a bit further along It's really nice in there

Oh no here we go again i believe its private and he reads the forum as last time he knew ww were ribnet tbh i think his overzealousness on pontoon dropping off has made him a target that and his lax lifejacket enforcement interestid
ng to note c2 a similar size made us wear his life jackets im sure we could sort some tenders out i was going to take my sib to lulworth and charge a taxi service but someoesd to fund a new set of carbs sadly someone has fixed them

Can we see your insurance policy in case we need to claim?

Well if it's private I can see his point, if he's paid for the pontoon and the upkeep and insurance and jumped through all the hoops to get it there I'm sorry I can see his point.
If he's got no people skills and goes off on one rather than explain well that's a different matter, but manners don't cost a penny.
