To be fair I can see admins point, which ain't often, he was just trying to help with your enquiry, we have been though this all before and what you are covering is old ground for some of us, it would give you a better informed opinion if you read the old thread, I doubt very much if you have thought of something that the old thread never covered but you could add to it thread if you have

In your opinion.

The MAIB report has very little to offer that wasn't within the range of likely conclusions. It comes as no surprise to read that the owner and his wife were not reckless and irresponsible (as some suggested) but were simply unlucky enough to be in the wrong place when all of the holes in the Swiss cheese lined up. The errors they made were no more serious than are made by many, perhaps a substantial majority of, boat owners from time to time.

The self-evident fact is that the kill cord safety system did not work for the Milligans. The fact that it would have worked if they had used it does not invalidate that conclusion. An alternative or additional system may have provided an additional defence that would have prevented the accident.

The MAIB way forward - ensuring that use of the kill cord becomes "second nature" is simply not going to happen in a large number of cases. No action will become 'second nature' unless the circumstances in which it is to be performed occur frequently enough for habit to develop.

Second nature may develop in the case of a pro user but unlikely in the case of a leisure user who is on the water, on average, once a month or less.

I would say that my statement was based on fact rather than opinion. Kill cords are cheap & reliable if used correctly, much like seat belts & lifejackets. No one has yet proposed a viable alternative to the killcord that doesn't depend on either fanciful electronics or concepts, or hideous amounts of money. Most, if not all of the reasonable alternatives involve some form of user interaction, which brings us back to the killcord. If you read the whole thread, you'll see that all the arguments are circular & end up back at the killcord. The weak link in the system is the organic lump between the seat & the wheel, factor that out & you might have a chance, but whilst ever that variable exists in the equation there will always be the potential for collateral damage. As I said, there's always a better class of idiot & that includes me, I'm on record saying that I have forgotten to use the KC on more than one occasion. Show me a system that's idiotfool proof, reliable, affordable & I'm first in the queue

I cant see how to remove my profile from the site, please do it now for me.

Absolutely no point being on here having to worry and look over my shoulder as to weather the way a conversation naturally develops is deemed acceptable or worthwhile by the admin.

I will come back in 10 minutes and check I have been removed.

Regards.
I prefer it when they threaten to spank you - they did that to me earlier. Oooh shiver me timbers - takes me back to me Navy days!
