Ribnet rnli sea check

The SEA Check HERE thread has got me thinking.
We are happy to organise a RIBNET Sea Check day at our premisis in Salisbury foe RIBNET members to bring along there boats and have them SEA CHECKED boats would have to be booked in before hand.
Having chatted with Nos, we were thinking of a Sunday during March next year so at the moment just checking intrest.
We would also lay on Hotdog's, Burgers, tea and coffee with all profit from them going to the RNLI on behalf of RIBNET.

Intrested? then in the first instance reply to this thread please.

re sea check

just to point out anybody who cannot get to this sea check

the RNLI do a free sea check at your home ( or where the rib is kept)
just contect them
best is january onwards as u get a see check sticker for your boat, most slips reconise this
on

As stated in other threads - a RNLI Sea Check only means that you have spoken to an RNLI advisor, its NOT a fail or pass...so i dont see why slipways recognise this...

If anybody is looking for Sea Check on the Forth, both sides ( i do the North Side, and Keith does the South side) or Tay Area ( Linda a good friend of mine does that area)...we will come to you where your boat is at for a one to one chat, or if you want we can come to club and do presentation and then do sea checks.

We will be organising a Sea Safety day at Elie, Fife , beginning of the season where any body is welcome to come along too. Port Edgar usually runs an event too, but these events tend to focus on Life Jacket Clinics and arranging a time for us to come back and do a SEA check if requested, but if you tell us your coming down with boat we will spend the time with you.

Seaskills - Ian on here is based in OBAN and can arrange for them in that Area.

In fact if you have difficulty arranging a Sea Check, PM me and I will pass your details to the Divisional Sea Safety Manager of Scotland.

Regards

Scott

just for anyone interested-i went for a sail to the kip marina today and the RNLI were on site and offered to do my sea check-45 mins later and very happy.

i got a nice little sheet with everything on it and i not saying "very good level of safety equipment". the guys also offered some advice on bits/bobs and were a pleasure to sit with for 45 mins or so while they done my boat/me.

if anyone is out for a sail in clyde then pop into the marina sunday and have a chat with them.

cheers

I'll bring my Avon SR4 down to Salisbury, it would be good to meet up and get some sound advice.

Thanks

I had a sea check done earlier this year but would like to pop along on the day for a hotdog and a chat.

How about having a charity stall for some marine gear, I have a few unwanted fenders and a blow up doughnut I could donate, also have an anchor, might make some money for rnli.

RNLI Sea Check

Hi all, I used to be a Sea-check advisor for the RNLI & now teach RYA powerboat courses. I can state that the 'Sea-Check' is not a pass or fail test, just good, solid advice about your boat, & safety equipment that you may want to consider have on board?

I'm sure all you guys have things covered, but some people do not even carry an appropriate anchor or even a hand-held radio as minimum safety equipment?

I have inspected a range of boats from canoes & jet-skis to 40 footers & equipment needed varies greatly depending on size!
If you can't make the above venue, just give the RNLI a call at poole HQ & they will give your number to an advisor who will contact you to arrange an appointment. Easy-peasy!
Stay safe!
