If your fuel tank ruptures and your bilge is full of fuel ensure that the electric bilge pump is off.

Whilst going through one of several launches during my level 2 PB training last April I was certain that it wasn't necessary to do up the zip on my dry suit...........only wading. I tripped over the wheel of the trailer, amused the kids and onlookers and had a cold wet crotch all day!! I remember to do it up every time now..........even in ankle deep water!!!

I must say reading all this makes me feel I'm not alone in making mistakes. Happy New Year,

Dave

ONE NEVER STOPS LEARNING

Have sailed on ships for a few good years and I have been involved with the sea for as long as I can rember.
I always say the learning curve for sea matters is inexhaustible. One ALWAYS learns from the other peoples expereinces.
This is a good thread!!
