Follow up to last thread posted.
Firstly let me apologise for not including my name etc. in the thread. Its all at the end of this thread now.
To address some of the points made in the replies to our posting…
The words “expect to find” were used because if we do not it may result in that vessel not being allowed to operate and being escorted to the nearest point that allows passengers/crew to disembark safely.
Where the word “should“ was used it does infer “must”.
INTERNATIONAL FLEET REVIEW
There has been much discussion on this site over the RIBs being used as marshalling boats during the International Fleet Review. The MCA have been working closely with those organising the Trafalgar 200 celebrations and are satisfied that there is no commercial gain for those whose RIBs that are being used for marshalling, therefore there is no requirement for them to carry any statutory certification. The Trafalgar 200 team have put their own safety conditions on the RIBs to be used.
I would recommend that all those that will be attending the Trafagar 200 celebrations look at the following website for safety information surrounding the event:
