Wise words! awful lot of North Sea botes running on twin yammie 90 2 strokes!
Problem is the ECU's give us the performance and economy ( therefore range) that we require

Cartel

How about a "black list" of TV crews and Event Management companies that can't organise a piss up. When you receive a request for a quote from one on the list you double the going rate because you just know its going to be a cluster. There could even be a Ribnet Cartel to keep the profits high

She don't mention the word "Cartel" - Uncle Tony will extradite you to the US....

I've been working in the film and TV business with boats for 10 years now - there is nothing they won't ask or even tell you to do - the secret is in knowing when to say no! At the end of the day the skipper takes responsibility for his actions, not the director! Now I am a co-ordinator as well it means I give instructions to other skippers - I also tell them to say no to me if they think I'm asking them to do too much or something potentially dangerous, I'm glad to say it's never happened!

Being in the broadcast industry, I look at producers in a similar light as politicians. They can promise you one thing but they dont stick to that, they do what they damn well like.

Statement Of Retraction - Bbc Coast

Following several emails and telephone calls directly resulting from my decisoon to air what amounted to my personal views in the public domain regarding the incident involving my vessel on 13 Jul 06, I have been asked following legal advice to make a formal statement.
"Irrespective of the alleged issues or causes, perceived or otherwise, leading up to the actual event of 1016hrs on 13 Jul 06, the ultimate responsibility for the safe operation of the vessel lies with her master. The decision to enter into discussion in the public forum before the completion of the investigation process was not correct and is regrettable. It was driven by the heat of the moment and not through any malice or malicious intent".
I hope this clarifies the position in the public forum.
John
