Don't disagree....as i said, just sharing my frustration really....am also expecting more work from them (but not banking on it ) so would be remiss to cause a stink....

Just venting....have been stuck on land for the past few days due to Northerlies (even missed a couple of lifeboat shouts)...back out diving tomorrow /Sun, so normal service will be resumed....

Thanks for listening to my woes cheaper than therapy!!

Having said all that, one day you'll find yourself at the helm of a rib, miles offshore, with a mewling mass of luvvies beseeching you to return them to terra firma. Life will seem good.

And don't forget Extras. Not the acting sort, the billing sort. Your day will come, don't be shy with the Invoice...

As someone who has worked quite a bit in the film business with boats I can empathise with you - sadly this is not a unique occurrence, but more of a regular one! Good luck with sorting this one out - I have to say we never got beaten on a quote by the Police!

I couldn't disagree more. Just because they are the Police they are still a public service, spening my, honest tax payers money,for a couple of coppers to go and play movies is outrageous. They have a reposibility to the public they serve to spend it effectively and efficiently as possible. This in NO WAY serves any public function.

If I was any way involved with this company or even a local I would definatley be rocking the boat , and talking to the local press, they'd just love a story like this, and I think it would have very different outcome.

I'm quite sure you would.

However, in my experience, a small business operator in a "rural" or "remote" location (sorry Dan ) is best to stay on the right side of Officialdom. They tend to have long memories and can be quite vindictive. I'm afraid that life isn't always fair.

In Dan's case, a few friends on the Force would be better than a bunch of lads sharpening knives for him. IMVHO, of course.

Nice horse, BTW

Put it down to an experience and insist on a deposit payed in full before a booking goes ahead and information starts to flow.
