I remember reading that MAIB report. She was actually standing to the side of the helm so no wonder she was thrown out.
Apart from that - in fairness - no matter how experienced you are anyone can make a mistake - a sudden lapse of concentration is all it takes.
As JSP says - a goold old heavy displacement hull with a deep draft and a canoe stern like Colin Archer used to design will look after you no matter what. With a planing hull - especially a light RIB - driver skill becomes far more important.
My hero of the RIB world is the late Shaun White. He ran his Ocean Dynamics RIBs for years off West Wales. He was probably the inventor of RIB thrill rides and his were the most extreme. They used to go out in silly conditions through the bitches but the boats were well up to the job. Big heavy RIBs with ali hulls - water jets and no transom.
All the passengers would sit on the tubes so if the worse came to the worse they would be thrown clear and not be crushed by the boat if it flipped. He also insisted on his passengers wearing canoing helmets which is a brilliant idea.
All this paid dividends when they eventually had a boat flip.
Please read the report - makes for great reading and you may learn something!!! There are a few criticisms but then thats what reports do - the fact that all the passengers survived with light injuries speaks for itself.
