>>> allow idiots in hire boats to go quite some way out of the harbour

I'm quite surprised they do this... wonder if they get incidents? Do they run a safety boat around while they have hires on the water?

I hired one 3yrs ago, speed limited 6hp Suzuki 4s. They just plod about at displacement speed and have a prop guard. Even if you rammed another boat you're in an inflatable. Can't really cause much damage. There's a marker buoy a few hundred metres off the harbour that you can't pass. There's one boat out there watching.
