Totally agree, infact one of the best Publications is the MAIB Safety Digest. If you do not know about it it basically reports on all accidents/incidents covered by them and is issued every 3mths. I have reviewed some operations after issues raised in this publication .

And if you look at it you will see that most of the cases are either fishermen or commercial operators perhaps they should have training ...........oh hang on, they do

Maybe these are all just accidents Des

Nearly the Same happened Last night!!

There was a small 3mtr tiller steered rib around Abersoch bay last night, 2 people on board ages 17-20. The crew fell out on when the boat went slightly on it's side in a slight swell. He landed in the water with his leg's going under the boat.
He was hit by the proppeller over both leg's.

Luckily there were only minor wounds, and he could still walk. he was seen to by a first aider and told to go to the hospital to check the wounds out, luckily at the hospital out of the approx 5 cuts on one leg and 2 on the other he only needed 5 stitches.

But this still comes back to looking at what happened Sunday and could have happened to this 17 year old boy last night.
