turning off your moaring and running over a police rib will do nothing for your safety record
What speed were they doing if they were just off the mooring?

Anyway, whatever the speed, failing to keep a proper lookout is an offence anyway, so just do them for that and leave the skilled alone...

From what I have heard, the PLA arn't very keen on Ribs and the use of large fast ribs on the Thames has been a bit of a thorn in the side of their power as the MCA rules let them be used without thames watermen!

From personal work on the thames certain boats on the Thames have been causing huge wake that claim to be wake free and the PLA want to stamp this out!

One life so live it........
