terrible accident, but i would have thought this accident would spark a helmet debate, not a lifejacket/drysuit debate

why would you get in the water at the slip? there is no need to!

maybe this should be a new thread as it's gone a bit off topic.

Course you need to in a lot of cases unless there a nearby pontoon or pier. On most of the slips I operate from there is a just a slip on the beach and the only way onshore is by waders, drysuit or dinghy

I would have thought a navigation debate, as it seems that hitting rocks was the cause of the problem.

BBC News - 'Boat homicide' charge dismissed over Garry Henaghan's death
