I have already aired my views on kill cords and life jackets, so ain't going there again
However , reading the forum there is so much more I want to ask about that seems the norm, but what I want to know is what is 'needed'.
I know my pier requires it to tie up against (though possibly not in rough weather) but for something worth a grand, is it worth it?
It's a rib , ie would bounce off most things, so public liability aspect seems daft.
Also, for something like what I have, what would be a ballpark figure?
I have a license, but I also have a phone that gets 2g minimum over the area I go. Added to I have the numbers of the boats in the area, creelers and trawlers (well most of them).
Most of the stuff I do will be in daylight, although a fair bit in the past was done in the dark. In the winter after work I would go between 2 large rocks using a house light on the shore and a candle in a bedroom window for my fixes, but zero boats in the area.
I don't have/intend to have an A frame so with a 4 metre, do I legally require them?
This might seem basic basic stuff, but my encounters using the above have been via work, so for 'pleasure' I am unsure.
I do get 'advisable to have' (like a small hp back up) but my requirement is to know what is 'needed' for a 4 metre.
Cheers if you don't think this is daft. ..
