Club rescue boat disgrace

Thought I would share a couple of pictures of a club rescue boat (whose name I shan't disclose) we recently had in for repair.

I would be sending these to the RYA for referral, and a visit. The condition of that kill cord is shocking! I wouldn't be able to live if something happened in a few weeks due to kill cord failure and I didn't do all I could!

I cant honestly believe that's real, and from a club!

Oh I can, when I see club boat handling skills demonstrated daily !! Today was a classic !! come in for fuel wind blowing off pontoon, Rib comes in to fast bounces then stops. helm steps off no KC, turns around to get the ropes by which time boat is now 1m away engine running and drifting!!

That's bloody shocking. I'm particularly horrified with the loose knot in the kill cord (which must have failed before and been put back, so well known about), but it's all a bloomin disgrace and cannot have been missed.

The new definition of gross negligence if that's an RYA centre.

I see club driving weekly and see the poor standards, but that's because they don't drive often and only do it because they are down to be OD.

Kit in that condition is a serious issue, as it's not down to skill, the club management should be strung up for that, and if it's a training centre they should be stuck off!
