Of course not - surely you didn't think I meant the whole world do you?

Think the point here is that there are helmets for different jobs.
You can't compare riding or cycling helmets to marine safety helmets.

The point I am making and tried to make earlier was/is that you can't expect a marine safety helmet to cope with the stresses of horse riding or motor cycling.
In the same way you can't expect a helmet for horse riding or motor cycling to meet the needs of a marine helmet.

Whilst there may be some cross over you should expect the helmet you have to protect you for the job it is designed for and nothing else IMHO


The Gecko and Comunica marine safety helmets are designed and built to meet the impacts and stresses at sea.
This includes the bucket effect, which by the way was first uncovered in the jet fighter world after a number of death when ejecting at speed!
I am lead to understand that the effect of fast moving air and water are very a like.

Regards

Yeah your right Cookee He's a know nothing nobber! Particularly when it comes to boating. I find it quite amusing when he opines on antifoul or the relevance of a laser propellor to a mini moke but when it's a matter of safety it distresses me!

How can giving bad advice based on opinion rather than knowledge or experience be in " quite constructive manner ".

True enough - but you also regularly see people giving advice "based on knowledge" which is utter bollocks too.
