Well, thanks for all the comments. I do not mind either way - just a thought.

I shall post my safety related post in the ribbers forum, if someone complains then point then here.

No! No SR forum, and no silly engine forums.

Seariders are clearly RIBs and covered by the RIBs and RIBbing forum.

Safety gear is not just limited to electronics, a shock to some I know. There is a whole liferaft of topics that regularly come up and it might help the newcomer to find them if they are listed under such a sensible heading?

Auxiliary Motors,
Sea Anchors,
Lifejackets,
Sea Survival Course...

Etc etc

This was what I said "I'm always wary of adding too many new sections. There's certainly plenty of discussion about safety issues, but I'm not convinced that they are separate enough from the general ribbing discussion to make a separate section a good idea."

It's not the number of sections that's the problem in itself, but whether it's something that can be properly separated. There are some threads that would happily sit in a "Safety" section, but I reckon that there are more that could equally end up in "Safety" or "RIBS and ribbing" which would rather defeat the object.

it's safe to say that a safety section should safely left where it is, safely with the safety minded people who safely go about there ribbing in complete safety
