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!
