Yes!

I personally would like to see a commercial thread as it would allow a different view and source of info which wold be easier to reference

I'd also like to see those in the trade be indicated as such. Most people are quite open about their involvement but some aren't. The reason why I bring this up is it makes a great deal of difference if your comments result in your income being increased or maintained.

Presently there is an issue with insurance for commercial operation. Some underwriters don't do bare boat cover and one major underwriter is withdrawing cover for fast rib rides . That's something I'd rather have a chat with with Griffin marine, Islander or Quinquarimarine than Missus, Daniel or Richard B ( all good friends by the way)

We could get into discussing best practice for safety briefing, injury prevention, boat maintenance and passengers drinking at lunchtime on corporate days etc ( or all the time during Cowes week)

What I don't want to see is the thread be hijacked to sell stuff or services on but I would very much like to see a commercial operators thread!

OK, if we have a commercial operators forum, should it include training schools or just charter and tour companies?

All aspects too...

If possible I'd like it to cover all aspects too.

Wave has mentioned insurance etc in his post above, and I have just scratched the surface of that particular nightmare over the last week or so - so commercial advice on stuff like that would be really useful.

I would have thought that on an open commercial forum, while not everyone would read it, anyone who had an interest in running a RIB commercially would do - not just schools or current operators.
