Before we digressed to talking about lights we were talking about drink boating which I think is an important issue.
The MAIB placed greater emphasised in their conclusions on alcohol than they did on using lights and knowledge of the COLREGS both of which were far more instrumental in this accident.
If I were paranoid I would jump to the conclusion that this is a government conspiracy to further control generally law abiding people
Not being paranoid (well maybe not) I think it is another example of PC thinking, drink kills, speed kills, cars kill etc and I worry where it will end.
Once those in authority start to control something the more and more control they will try to exert, no drinking, compulsory life jackets, boat MOTís, driving licences, driving tests, sea (road) fund licence, seat belts, mirrors
