Hi Karl, we have done so.
As a responsible member of the marine industry there are a number of things our customers do that we do not approve of.
We have given them a long list of alternatives, but they are dead set on the plan. They have also explained that the skipper is coxswain of their local lifeboat and the navigator is a master mariner, having studied the weather and tides for 48 hours they are confident it will be ok.
If it were me, I would not even consider it. But other than advising the authorities and giving them options I do not see how we can (or should) stop them?
