Lol, john, I suppose anti autharian mode kicked in when I got stopped in the car on Saturday for an 'insecure battery'. "But the battery is happy with life" didn't go down well with the rozzers


"Choice" is what is 'should' be about, and I used to wear it if I deemed it rough enough. That won't alter.
(Edit to add, that as I believe in the choice to wear or not, to call some folk in the thread title ,'morons', is a bit inflammatory, hence a ranty post..)

And I hope the beast does indeed get going again, for I'd far rather have a 4 in a gale as opposed to say a 7 metre one. They're no fun, even with a big engine.

Mate also has a sr 4.0 and he's stuck a yam 55 on the back, and I'll be interested in the comparison. A hell if a lit more power , but it weighs a tonne.

Yes, I agree that it probably wasn't very helpful. I think it was done for effect, and it looks like it succeeded!

The Hidden Danger of Seat Belts - TIME


A quick google shows at least one risk analyst thinks things got worse.

Safer you are, worse you'll behave...

One by a person that works for a newspaper, one from a risk analyst...

Meh.

Only 'morons' would implement a universal "wear cord 100% of the time" or support it.

Cap size starovich?

With direct quotes like the above it is clear to me that it is you who has a one size fits all mentality.
Ill see your 7 and raise you 20+ more, on a huge variety of boats.

One cap size doesnt fit all, and your assertion that "It would be too unsafe to wear the cord. Yes, 'unsafe" is both narrow minded, uneducated and wrong.

Whilst I think it should be mandatory to use one, and others on here disagree vigorously the 1000's of years of collective experience say Kill cords should be used the majority of the time and will outweigh the neigh sayers 9999 to 1.

Deal with picking up the aftermath of a marine tragedy that could have been avoided, the parents, siblings and friends loss then come back and say they are unsafe.

Meh. I've lost more friends because of the brit submarines allowed to roam our coast than I have had a scratch because of killcords.

Take stats all you want , but 2 out of 3 people that support mandoratry kill chords , are as stupid as the other 1.

Shall we get back onto topic which is not the mandatory use which has been heavily debated here, but the use at all.
It is clear that mandatory or not you won't use them, and while I know that darwin was correct, i hope it never befalls you.

In addition the person who wont listen to stats reason and common sense is just stupid.

I should have taken heed to my first post on this thread, god I hate it when i'm right!
