CJL I am not knocking the MCA i am in fact very suportive of them and I certainly am glad they are there,
but I refuse to stand up and salute an activity that in my opinion is mostly redundant.
Surely the spot check requires no less setting up on a coded boat than on an uncoded boat?
I got no problem with the MCA enforcing the laws nor do I have a problem coding a boat. I have a problem with the resources not being deployed to persecute and prosecute the illegal operaters who don't care.
I think I asked a reasonable question of Mark and I would kinda appreciate an answer.
As it is I'll probably wait for a pull on the water. As Searider says you can manage the perception of your passengers quite affectively providing you pass!
