I'm aware m'lud that ignorance is no defence, however I was sincerely unaware that the "feature" section existed. When I open Ribnet, I'm presented with a list of forums (fora?) no sign of a features section. Maybe I need to dig deeper. I'll watch the postman with interest

When I read the title I thought this was heading to the bilges for sure. Having read the post it's very informative and well worth duplicating.

Didn't spot it first time out either.

Appreciate the post about this. Just hope I'm never in the situation I have to act... but if I do, at least I know some of the signs to look for.

This happened earlier this week in Canada in just a metre of water, sad indeed. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/windso...-st-clair.html

That's because it was last March. She effectively died of Hypothermia, not drowning.

As an aside - I've done a couple of 40 minute dives in water that was 3 degrees C. Even with a full dry suit and big undersuit, gloves etc, it was absolutely numbing and I was actually in tears after the first dive as the feeling returned to my hands. The water off our northern shores in winter drops to 6 degrees - I'd hate to fall in....

Didn't realise it was earlier in the year.

Great information, that I too missed first time round. I have copied and posted on our Facebook page, so that it is read by as many people as possible

Even so, it shows that you can miss things in the features section which I very rarely read.
Well it made me read it as it made 250kts (and now me) post it on FB, so worth it.
