I have been thinking of fitting footstraps but after reading this I am not to sure!

Interesting article about Ozzie rescue boats in heaqvy surf - it says how many people suffered broken feet caused by the footstraps!

They suggest rubber boots as used on water skis as a possible solution.

Interesting study.
Reading the study and looking at the 2 photos they've got I think that may be these injuries this article refers too are conventional inflatable boats IRBs (Inflatable Rescue Boats - they look like SIBs actually)and not Rigid Inflatable Rescue Boats (RIRBs) of 5mtrs and over.
I would think that the later type of craft (RIB) may have 'softer' landings than the conventional type of Inflatable boat (SIB).
However, the points made in this article/study need to be investigated as it raises some very serious issues about foot straps.
If any one knows of a study about foot straps and effects to crew on RIBs it will be very interesting to see it.
