Exactly so why dont some of these boat magazines try and support safety better, could even air brush on a lifejacket ...Ho Ho Ho,

with all this stuff everything falls back to the common impression over time, the more times a non lifejacket wearing image appears the more normal it is in the mind of numpty heads. If every image of boaters underway on small craft had people wearing lifejackets im sure far more people would wear them in the real world, that was my point. And it cant be that difficult to do in mags.

I agree with the issue with Kids its not there fault, which reminds me about the chap on sunday towing a 6 year old child on a rubber ring from a jet ski across the flow of traffic out or poole harbour. Its like the wild west poole harbour these days.

Safety doesnt sell magazines, scantilly clad girls and good looking ribs messing about in the sun do.

Live and let live.. Some guys must have no/never had any real problems in life to worry this much about the odd picture in a mag showing someone with no life jacket.. I dont loose any sleep over it.

People have been moaning about mags not showing life jackets for the last twenty years. However I think PB&R created a rod for their own back when they started lobbying for a change in law on kill cords. Still on this occasion it sounds like they were aware of the issue rather than ignoring it and threw in something glib which invites the user to think about and decide for themselves. You might almost believe that they think people should be able to make up their own minds!

IMHO ALL of the hobby, leisure interest, call 'em what you like, magazines are a total waste of money. I stopped buying boating mags about 15yrs ago. I buy one copy of Fall Line (skiing) every December to kick the season off, flick through it in about 90secs and then curse the thing as 5s worth of ads, padding and bollox.

Don't waste yer money boys.

think what was meant by the OP was that it wouldn't have killed PB&R mag to put a comment in brackets ( PB&R fully recommend and support the wearing of LJ etc etc at all times irrespective of local norms) ...or something similar.

Ta Peter- that's what I meant

btw the 'update' HMS posted on their FB page today quite good.

Watched the video earlier and obviously it didn't look right but without sounding a bit thick was the captain doing that on purpose and if you why? - I don't understand

Hi Jumpi'n Jack!

I guess you see the result of "innocent" boating actions that most of us (luckily) do not. Maybe people should take that into account.

I'm "siiting on the fence" in that I agree the magazine should have made some referenece to commonly held safety policy whilst siting locsl "customs".

But I can't argue with anyone who wants to "raise awarenss" of safety without calling for legislation. So, good on you Paul.

Regards

Steve
