For those rare few, yes.

It's hard to imagine that the Mother didn't have some appreciation of the situation. They have a place on the shore and a number of boats (all still on shore) as well as a large sailboat mooring (empty).

And we all know that the more boats you have, the smarter you become... Mind you, none of them were RIBS...

We'll I'm heading out again just now... I wonder what the "Catch of the Day" will be today!

Well done stoo, I'd have given her both barrells.

We helped a 16ft Fletcher using paddles 1000yds offshore from puffin island in irish sea. Three generations, 60 35 and 9 yr old. No lj's no radio, battery flat, 1970s inboard never serviced, everything rusty, mobile to call rnli. We gave them our spare battery to start it and life jacket to 9 yr old. rnli arrived and couldn't believe we had spare battery, leads, tool kit, flares, radio, mobile and spare 6.6 engine on a 5.4 sr. They asked if we could lend them the battery to save a tie and ensure the owner return it to a local water/pub. We left rnli and them to it. Got more thanks from the rnli and there wasn't even a pint behind the bar for lending the lj and battery. At least they did return them.

sometimes when after being rescued some people can and do walk away without even a thanks,,,,sometimes through embaressment , plain ignorance or arrogance,,though often later reflecting on just how lucky and foolish they really were and to get away with what they did ,,A GOOD JOB AND WELL DONE to you Stoo,,

Well any of the above been rescued when younger.
Through one situation or another then ?????

We have all done something stupid when younger.
What was yours.

Mine was rowing an 8 foot dinghy between Hayling island and eastney point at full flood
tide belting out with 3 persons aboard I was 14 years old.

Yes I only just made it and yes I got a real good telling off.
and nothing safety wise just a pair or oars.

Hi Stoo,Great stuff and well done,a point that must be mentioned is that anyone exposed to the cold and potentialy with hypothermia you can also potentially kill them using a space blanket.(I asume you mean a foil blanket)They are not able to generate there own heat so will get colder and colder resulting in death.Cling film or clear polythene to keep the wind off them is better

perhaps if you stuff it down their throat!

I'll accept that they are shite, but you don't worsen their condition so YOU don't kill them.

if they are breathing then respiration is an exothermic process so they are generating heat.

Not quite, space blankets do not generate heat they simply retain heat (and cold!) however any heat generated is redirected towards the body thanks to the foil. A better (but not practical all the time) approach is remove wet clothes, put on dry clothes and then blanket followed by foil blanket.
