running a cat3 charter rib, skippering a 40ft race boat, building ribs for a living and manufacturing stainless gives me quite a unique perspective on vibrations on a boat, stress cracks on stainless are mostly due to this.
i'll bow to someone else experience when they can provide me with some concrete evidence rather than a load of quoted figure that have, i doubt, never been applied to a rib.
ive seen this happen so many time before in other industries and it just dies away because it's unworkable, a number of years back there was a similar thing with the guys doing the road works and the concrete breakers, they came up with load of stuff but could never find a better way to use the breakers, so it all disappeared.
like i said i'm all for safer boating but it seems to be safer you'll have to pay for the seminar, i think i'll carry on as i have done, common sense has worked for me

Just thought I would re-ignite this thread, the company we have had some very good inputs from have a new website. I only attended their course and am not connected to them but there is some info worth a read for those interested at FRC International - Whole Body Vibration Awareness Courses

Glad you got value out of it and would echo your comments.

The fact we have as a company attended and have a company statement & policy on this subject, has already proved valuable
Regards
Steve

Also in the NIEA have set up a WBV group which report to our boat working group. Already we are making safety improvements since we attended the WBV managers and crew courses

I have made some small alterations to our safety policy and operating procedures and include a talk on this to potential instructors for powerboats and pwc as it is mentioned in G20 04 RYA Powerboat logbook latest edition September 2011
Common sense is the key to applying how we drive in different conditions.
I will keep an open mind on the need for me to attend this type of seminar .
As the guidance notes seem to cover it for me .
