This is simple.....

The easiest way to reduce risk of injury is to remove people from harms way.
So when no one needs to be on the slip, why have them there.

If you're happy to have your friends/crew/family paddling around behind your car, in front of your trailer, over the edge of the slip, under your car, under your trailer on a slimy boat ramp then crack on. I'm sure "plod" will commend you for you diligence.

As regards Lymington and it's "Harbour nursery-paddling committee"..... unfortunately they didn't make it on to my "places to visit" list anyway so I'll not be loosing any sleep over that.
Like I said yesterday,

'Is it really safe to leave a outboard running, prop spinning and no-one at the controls in a public place - however you sugar coat it?? '

If a man is alone in the forest & no one can hear him speak, is he still wrong?
