I usually avoid the lifejacket histrionics,(I believe in personal choice) but I did think it was odd that they were bowling along at 19kn in the dark & not a LJ or harness to be seen. I'm not a WAFI so I don't know what the form is, but personally I'd have been wearing one.
The skipper at the end, was a weasel!
