Scott - knowing your set up - I would think the greatest risk is actually if someone tried to carry a full jerry can down the ladder at the harbour - and you might want to add some comment to cover such stupidity!

its the carrying the full tanks single handled down the ladder, no refueling on boats....i guess roping or refueling at low water....dont you love H & S....

  • Don't try use syphon by sucking the petrol tube to start it...mouth full of petrol is not good for health ....
  • When going down ladders please ensure two hands are used, and dont carry petrol tanks or any other by hand.. Lower the Cans by Rope down to boat.
Wanted a policy to customised to our needs...

it all comes down to your fire risk assessment have a chat with your local fire officer he/she will be able to offer you some advice if i was closer would have happly come over and sorted it out along with the policy.

The Stages Of A Fire Risk Assessment:
Step One: Identify Fire Hazards
Step Two: People At Risk
Step Three:Evaluate Risks
Step Four: Record Your Findings

i will send you some info to have a read through.

thanks - the main club house has a full fire alarm installed including smokes in loft, break glass and monitored to control centre.

We have club lock up/store the other side of harbour that I need to assess now.

Thanks for all your help, I see light at end of tunnel...

Step back from the problem.

If you are proposing to lug umpteen 5L cans or a jerry can out to he boats to refuel, why not just buy a couple more 20L fuel tanks, and carry them out & swap them over? If you put a connector on the tank rather than a fixed hose, you also remove a potential trip / damage hazard to the fuel tightness of the portable tank.

That way you remove a lot of risk with the "offshore" refuelling, and only need to worry about the storage & getting the fuel out the pumps & into the tanks side of the risk assessement. It also means you are alot less likely to contaminate the fuel, and will give you a lot more operational flexibility.

Risk assessement stuff above still applies!

yes - very good ideal...just need to sort secure storage in or outside store, with 3nMile range limitation for training purposes - a 20 litre with a 5 litre reserve is all be boat needs, a swap out a lunch break if needed...

Update: We were inspected today and Pass, thanks for advice, we opted for fueling bund and a 60 litre 30min rated petrol store.

Now waiting for paper work from RYA.
