and his top speed is maybe 40 knots, i think that is to slow to give people great experience.
Nonsense, i disagree with you.......... we take people out, and cruise at around 25 - have never had a complaint to date.
Yes people like to go fast, but there must surely be a limit - read about company's taking people out boasting about speeds of 60 knots - christ you hit a jellyfish at that kind of speeds with 12 passengers, who are in your command , there will be an accident and it will be a bad one, you can show people a great time, without these speeds, it means that you have to offer allot more, in the way of nature, sightseeing, and the local area, an skipper duties but it is done and it is done well by many.......... anyone can get in a boat, and say hold on for your feckin life, and give it full wellie up to 60 odd knots, there is no person to person skills involved.......... poss have a good time... dunno, depends on your passengers?????
think what happens if you crash your car at 60mph+............. or a minibus....... at least if you do and get out, there is no worry about you drowning on the tarmac, but there is in a RIB that does this speed.......
Means when this does happen, and it will, that insurance will hit new levels, and make it harder for allot more people....
Opening a can of worms...
