Pic...

I've spoken to Steve at PIC - and to cover skippered charter etc is going to cost approx an additional 190 over and above my existing policy (NU).

I was expecting it to be more...

PIC do cover skippered charter but not Bareboat
What is the difference between fast rib rides and skippered charter??? Assuming the charter will also be at high speed!!!

Couldn't one of the passengers be the charterer and leave it to the others to split the bill???

Tim

Not a question of how fast the boat will go but more of a case of maintaining that max speed under normal operating conditions. Exactly the same as a car whereby the max speed is well in excess of limits.

Agreed that there are no open water statutory limits for vessles ( excepting the High Speed Craft regs for pax vessels) but the insurers can stipulate max regardles of regs (if less than the reg).

Thus with our vessels having operating speeds of 50knots plus the key is to ensuring that operating speed is maintained as per policy. The advantage, like a car, of the increased power (and resultant speed) is acceleration which can be contrued as helpful in an emergency situation or as dangerous to the novice !

Of course there are no speed cameras at sea and we could also spend a long time defining speed ( over the ground etc etc) but the point to remember that when you get close to 40knots the risk of hurting someone badly in a MOB situation increases exponentialy ie. if you drop a pax over the side and they suffer major water impact trauma then I guess your speed will be questioned.

Cheers

John

That is the ultimate aim but not really interested in pax carrying - more for film work etc for mate's production company.

Yep John

I agree , thats why we have a max speed of 35 knots which is more than fast enough for a rib ride if the conditions allow .
