I may be wrong (it does happen!) but I don't believe that answering a CG call gives you the right to go as fast as you like in a harbour?

Before making this a regular occurrence you may want to ask the Harbour Master what his opinion is and if he would look kindly on you and not give you a ticket for speeding.

Why would you NOT have your VHF scanning 16 and the local CG working channel?

Mine gets switched on as she rolls off the trailer and switched off when she runs back onto it...

I agree , but as Christchuch has no harbour master I am not sure who to ask !

I'd hope that the authority would look favouribly on anyone responsing to request for assitance that the 2 local ILBs are also going to ?

Dont worry I am one of few boats that does as routine stick to the 4knt limit. It is in my experiance the one or two jetskis & the yachts that blow the limit away !

Blackroady...

... if you have occasion to rescue me, give her the full welly.

I'll pay the fine

A question, do the RNLI observe speed limits when on a "shout"? I appreciate they're different, but not to the gadge in the water...

If there were already 2 ILB's on the way I think I would have just gone about my business.

If the Salcombe Lifeboat were to disappear up the Estuary at full speed on a shout it would make Salcombe a surf destination only second to Newquay!

That doesn't quite answer the question that I asked

Thats what was odd - I responded first , then they tasked the 2 ILBs - I could see one just ahead of me , but when I asked if they still 'wanted me' they said yes please !

When I spoke to the CG crew who turned up later they said as they were not sure what exaclty was happening they wanted as many boats as possible on the way !

My last comment - I dont think the 'casualty' had a VHF & the wake from my little 4 m is bugger all , infact far less that at 4-5 knts at anything over 15knts anyway.

I'm pretty sure even the RNLI have to ask permission to go above the designated knottage.
