These posts are not about my belief in Jesus Christ/ or Nick Hearns educational level/or about somebody wanting to know about the end of the world- its about Safety at Sea- so lets keep to the subject.

Subjectively, and I repeat subjectively there seems to be a lot of accidents
involving ribs and this can't to be right. Currently it is relatively un-regulated, and I believe it should stay like that- but there are minimums that people should adopt- training, rib and engine maintenance, navigation, laws of the sea ect..If "accidents" continue, the whole thing will end up being super regulated and that would be a pity to all concerned. Period.

agree with eupa

accidents sometimes are never avoidable however many can be avoided by simple procedures and taking little danderous risks. that does not mean we all cant have a great time ribbing. and for the video clip and reading some of his stories i think rob jones is playing on the edge of fun and danger, a bit foolish even it does look cool.

Hopefully that way there will be plenty of space in all those great little harbours for the rest of us and fewer ribs in the Solent (Town Quay during Cowes week was astonishing, full of ribs everywhere)

Lighten Up

Hey All,

As I appear to be pivotal to this discussion I figured I should put my 2 pennies worth in.

Im not here for a long time - none of us are, if we spend our days worrying about what might happen how are we ever going to enjoy the simple things in life.

Worry about things you cant control - like a drunk driver killing your child on the way to school (apologies if this has happened to anybody).

I cannot see any difference in jumping from the boat or falling off some water-ski's. I have been a RIB owner since January, and in those few short months I have experienced some truly amazing sights. From learning to wakeboard with 2 bottle nosed dolphins buzzing around in Cornwall or a solo crossing to the scillies in 15ft seas. These are the things you will take to the grave with you, of course you could spend the rest of your days polishing that boat cutting around with tales of derring do - but only you know that in reality fear will always get the better of you.

Remember fear is only an emotion, just like stress or tiredness, take that emotion out of the task in hand, ensure you have covered all bases - and just do it.

Blairs Britain.

Accidents Don't happen with New Labour.

However everbody please remember you can die whilst just launching your boat.

Its very difficult as a skipper taking a boat out, loads of things to remember, and it always seems as the thing you forget to do bites you in the bum.

I'm sorry but most people nowadays want to blame everybody else but themselves.

Just a quick tome from some one sick of old England.

God wish I was back in Europe again.

Clean streets, no potholes, quiet sophisticated nights in pubs, free parking, good food, good beer (We know it as Lager), Sunday as a day of rest, the list is endless.

God I can't wait till I retire and emigrate..................

Beers been talking again.......................
