I've been holding the Ribdotnet Safety Police to account for a number of years.

This PeterM is a relatively new recruit to the force. i think we should call him a Special Constable.

He's already got form though, just look at his recent post on the Lulworth cowboy thread.

I feared we would here from him following his daughter's trip with a Commercial operator. He will have been desperate to find something to criticise as he of course knows better, and his post strongly hinting of an "issue" was duly submitted.

Its now rather amusing to see him up against the wall following a couple of posts from the said operator and colleague; he obviously wasn't expecting that!

So let's hope this is going to be a lesson learned and think carefully before posting comments about commercial operators and potential business repurcussions.

I haven't seen PeterM trying to state or imply anything specificaly on this issue other than he wanted to follow up on something, he may have a concern which is a perfectly natural thing to follow up on seeing as its daughter who went out on the trip and as a fellow ribnetter and seing as he is involved in commercial skipperring and also like many of us are interested in improving safety partly due to the many incidences recently I cant see anything wrong with that.

I would like to hear what the concerns were which may help my own level of awareness around safety, (if it was a safety issue) I expect others on this forum would also welcome it. The more people talk about safety issues the more we are all better informed and can make proper risk based decisions.

He may have wanted to praise good service

Maybe you should post up your feedback Pete ? Put it to the masses

OK - in the interest of openess my concern was around the seating in the Cobra used - which I have no problem with if used in the way they were intended etc etc ( I like Cobras - I think they are well built , solid & safe boats ) . I'd add my posts about kill cords were a joke due to the amount of kill cord posts going on - and that even my youngest is quite confident on a boat. I have no doubt at all about them being used in the charter industry - just in case that wasn't clear

A google of 'Charlie Hutton' - will explain all .

However I've swapped messages with Jonathan who was very reassuring about how things were conducted etc etc.

In summary I had a concern I felt was real & justified - however Jonathan has been in touch - all is good . He clearly runs a well established and responsible operation as does Kevin from Gunwharf . It was not a charter from Gunwharf - more of a pickup.

Case closed as far as I'm concerned - happy to buy a pint for Kevin / Jonathan - infact everyone on Ribnet should I ever get the chance to meet them - apart from 'that Timw' who I have PM'ed and asked to respond..... a true ribnobber ?
