Read this before you start campaigning for compulsory education. What has to be the most tragic incident of recent times, involved not the scrotes you describe, but educated, qualified people. Didn't do them much good AND they voluntarily educated themselves because they wanted to, not because some terwat with a clipboard told them to.

Sh1t happens!

Not sure on this one, we were doing transfers and a few others were about not coded vessels. All I saw all day was no lifejackets and no cord, asked police how many they spoke to and answer NONE.
Harbour masters on Rivers were talking to loads

Are lifejackets and killcords a legal requirement in the UK?
