MAIB Report, A Salutary Tale

http://www.maib.gov.uk/cms_resources...oty_Report.pdf

This MAIB report was published today. Was aware of the accident as it happened in my area earlier in the summer. Thought it might be of interest to others, hence the posting. MAIB reports tend to be written in a positive way and can often have some useful learning points.

Bottom line..........Don't drink and dive / drive!

If I were

Redbay, I should not be at all pleased with being associated with this incident. It may well be that the owners of the Humber said that they had copied the Redbay design (not the only canopy type around BTW), but for the MAIB report to actually show a Redbay boat in this context is grossly damaging to their image.

over the pic ............

'Image courtesy of Redbay Boats'

Lets not get away from the point of the report - ie to let us all learn from the accident.

I for one am stunned at the 2007 fatality numbers for when anchored / alongside

Easy Tiger! Redbay obviously gave them the photo. Nowhere (far as I can see) does the report implicate the canopy design in the incident. The causes are perfectly clear - boating Party full as ticks! Sad, but It Happens Every Year

All too easy to have a few to many.
I won't take alcohol on a boat or accept it off someone if they choose to bring it.

The fact they copied the Redbay console must mean Redbay are doing something right, can't see how it would damage either RIB builder. They can't control what the owners of RIB's built by them do.

I am not

ghoulish, so I do not want to dwell on people's misfortune. An accident that should not have happened, and the reason why it did is obvious.
I have little to add except condolences to his family! I agree that we can all learn from it.

Perhaps they were hiding in embarrassment rather than maintaining a proper watch?
