Good that you brought it up Ian.

I did see it just after release and very pleased that I had antcipated its contents to the letter. So no major changes needed to anything we do.

not sure i would like that bar in the first boat pic, it's just the right height to take your teeth out, the rest looks like a lesson in common sense

Biff I agree with your comments and very pleased that common sense seems to have been applied. Unusual these days, whenever a government body is involved .....

RYA are not a government body though. Wait till the MCA/MAIB interpret the "common sense" as rigid rules following an accident then you'll see how government can bugger it up...

i hate to agree with you but you're right, one of the mca top guys is retiring soon, my only hope is that mark towl can make fair policy on his own, dealing with him i don't hold out much hope thought
