I had no idea how bad a parent I was, my daughter could have died, you should all really report me to the NSPCC



I have no idea how she managed to make it to 18

Seriously, kill cords-always, Lifejackets offshore-no brainer, BA for watersports-good idea. But not wearing half a wetsuit on a sunny day ?????

It has gone a bit off-topic from the overall dangerous RIB I first mentioned! But if nothing else, it's provoked a bit of thought and a few ideas!

the origional post was relating to people in boats and on boards & kayaks very different to playing on a beach in waist deep water.
perhaps you need to re read the complete thread?

I have hung my head in shame

To clarify, its OK to wear half a wetsuit in waist deep water cos they cant drown in that. But if they are in shoulder deep water they will die a horrible death from wetsuit inversion and lack of parental responsibility

Kids had just rowed the tender in from our sportsboat at the time of picture (Oars and BA's in tender), the oars of course had the kill cord attached

Threads evolve, this one has move on a long way since the OP started it.

That pic has to be in a foreign country, nowhere in the UK looks that hot, even in summer!

Still off topic,but as the title is unbelievable ribbers how about, as well as making kill chords and life jackets compulsory, bringing in mot's for trailers.

Those loons with boats full of beer, kids, and no life jackets are most likely to be the same ones we see on the hard shoulders up and down the country. They,ll be minus a wheel having ploughed a stripe through the Tarmac with the stub axle.

To be fair, killchord and life jacket has always been a no brainier for me. However, a complete beginner may not even know what a killchord is! And without mot's how would a person new to boating know that filling your boat with fuel and camping gear and dipping it in saltwater is going to get you 12 months from your bearings!?!

Nobody told me.......actually the AA man told me the second time it happened! Ok. It was pre internet and I had no boating friends at the time but nevertheless an extremely dangerous learning curve, that could have killed my family and other innocent road users. Education and legislation that's what I say.

Beamishken, the original thread was my comment about a dangerous RIB that I had seen at the weekend. Don't think I need to read too much!

But yes, the thread has moved on and provoked thought/comment which can only be good.
