Form what I can gather it's the insurance companies that are pushing with the help of the MCA. As you know it used to be no problem to get a Rib covered for skippered charter, but with so many "Adventure" operators now the claims go up and the underwriters start prodding operations.
I personally know of 1 operator who had their insurance stopped because the underwriters looked at his web site and saw the passengers all sitting on the tubes as the boat went through a tight turn!!
It dosent really matter what is right or wrong, better or worse as Rogue says " thou roolz iz roolz"
