If they had been driving the boat properly if the first place then they wouldn't have needed safety harnesses. For Gods sake thats got to be a 7m plus delta! what on earth did they do to capsize such a well designed boat? unless of course they were perhaps fooling around with a boat they didn't have to pay for or maintain.
Another example of people in a government service that know squat about boats. Sadly ours (and that includes the MOD) are just as bad. Should know spent 22 years working for them.
Makes me smile when rib manufactures advertise the fact that they sell ribs to government departments, like they are experts, ha, not! and our senior service isn't doing very well at the moment either, strike one destroyer and now a sub from the fleet. So put yourselves on standy for call up, we might need your rib in the Gulf shortly. "Ships taken up from trade (STUFT)" I think its called.
