Did mine some time back and I think you will find anyone considering doing a crossing of the Channel or Irish Sea (IOM) will have done so too.
Well said Steve. I did it prior to our Guernsey Cruise

There are lots of safety threads - I was more thinking along the lines of a forum section dedicated to safety rather than trawling through all sections or undertaking a search

Possibly me being lazy though

Not a bad idea. Suggest it to John K.

Sorry - didn't mean to dismiss it. I was going to write more earlier but had to get on with life... and cut it short. What I was going to say was a long the lines of: "I suspect that people on internet boating forums (and possibly those who buy magazines) are more aware of the perceived risks and the ways of mitigating those risks than those who do their boating in isolation".

I am surprised that CG66 wasn't mentioned on KY's PB2 course, I am sure it was mentioned on mine? I'm sure its also in "Nos's beginners' guide".

I've tried updating the picture (I've added front & rear lockers) on my CG66 a couple of times and it wasn't having any of it - has anyone else had issues ?

im on it

I registered when we bought the boat. Jono G gave me the forms when I did the VHF course. Cheers. Such a good idea.

Jono reckoned if they know what they are looking for they can calculate how far you may drift in relation to current winds and tides, dependant on your boat in particular. Plus they know what safety gear you have etc

It's a no brainer.

Bumble - I had problems adding a photo in the first place. I sent an email to the help address and whilst they weren't exactly speedy they did fix it (a week or so later).

Reszing the image on photobucket or cropping it works.
