Preumably you don't actually follow this advice, otherwise your RIB would stay on its trailer forever!

I'm still not quite sure what you perceive as high risk in this case. From your comments about lawn mowers and turbines I assume that you are concerned about the possibility of the jumper coming into contact with the prop. Is that right?

Coming off the side of a RIB, towards the stern, at 30 knots, I reckon that it would be almost impossible to get in the way of the prop. I would rate the pickup as potentially far more hazardous, but no worse than picking up a skier.

Rubbish this ‘accident’ could have been avoided the driver should have been driving even slower or even stopped, he should have anticipated that children always run out between two parked cars and taken a different route avoiding all parked cars or should he have a man with a red flag walk in front
The point is that pseudo-cleaver overpaid legal arses can argue that any ‘accident’ was someone’s fault and it is only when these people wake up to the damage they are doing to our sociality that we will get back to a more sensible situation
Eupa you’re a god botherer what is it that JC said about throwing stones and people without sin or something anyway the same applies here, we have all had situations were we have got away with something dangerous and yet when someone doesn’t get away with the same thing we want to punish them
If you lay down in front of my car and I deliberately drove over you that is my fault. If I drive around a corner and hit a tree I have misjudged the situation and had an accident.

NATURALLY of course- i am not referring to him hitting his head on a barge pole!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I put my rib back yesterday ALONE from the trailer. It was not a risk.

- there was very little wind/ high tide
- Engine start only when driver in cabin
- Rib stll attached to trailer with long rope in a "U" to cabin hitch
- Check clearence all round
- engine start. idle 3 minutes
- put into minimum forward so that rib is pushing onto trailer
- let go "U" rope
- check clearence at back
- check wind
- 3/4 throtle reverse

No problem. On PB level 2, with MOB. you are taught to approach at minimum speed , and go to neutral at least 10 meters away

I dont think you can be careful enough with ribs!!!!!!!!!!!

I mean that you come across as someone who is more versed in the writings of the New Testament than most. Des
