Just read an article in PBO about the nasty crash where a 13 yr old powerboater was seriously injured.

Here is the document produced by the MAIB.

Basically they conclude that the Gecko is the ONLY helmet approved for the marine environment - they also say however that it is NOT suitable for powerboat racing as it doesn't offer enough protection!!!

Basically it comes down to what I said earlier - no definitive answer!!!
