thanks Tim

Yep you can fix a puncture at sea, but I am not advocating training that in the PB2 I am just say give a link to a website that sells the stuff to fix trailers and other stuff like clamshells, stuff that it takes us months/ years to find out about

for example does anybody advise their students to take the vessell and get an RNLI sea safety check or should we not?

You know stuff that's free , is no skin off our nose but helps the boating cause in the long run nad maybe educates our students a little bit more.

A recomended Bibiography might be good, Solent Hazards, the previously mentioned books, boat maintenance that sort of stuff

Loads of freebies from the RYA and MCA . Sea check yes Solas v Lifesaving signals engine checks , lifejackets the list is huge.
Any thing that you feel is worth recommending to students is good ,the list of books available is comprehensive from Motors to hazards.

Bruce i am sorry you did not know about the hazards i have no experience of Medina Valley and how they run , if your other school does not operate in the central Solent then can understand why it was not covered, one thing though from this, i think all Instructors reading these forums must have questioned themselves as to what they do include in their courses, so some good has come of it. You were very unfortunate but extremely brave in owning up to your mishaps, lessons have been learned by yourself and others don@t be put off . I imagine the offers of help have come flooding in from various people / schools .
