I sure hope I never run afoul in your local waters. It appears that were I to survive the incident I'd surely be killed in the battle to save what's left of me.

After reading this whole thread I'm struck by the cultural differences that exist in this world. None of this would ever even occur in the world I know. It is strange and fascinating all at the same time!

I agree totally and it is unfortunate that certain people seem to think they have a monopoly on help others just because they have certain "qualifications'. However, I do not think, in general, this is a cultural issue but rather an isolated example of a couple of guys (Matt and Tiffy excluded) who got carried away and behaved poorly.

Yes I imagine that if you were unlucky enough to fall out of your boat in the solent you would surface only to find numerous large RIBS bearing down on you at great speed with slavering rescue crews hanging over the side boat hooks dripping in blood at the ready.

times like this I wish I was a cartoonist

RYA Safety Boat Coxswains

[QUOTE=Simon Hawkins;229379] Tiffy. I am not going to get into a tit for tat battle with you on this subject, but for your information we have 4 Advanced Powerboat Instructors, A Boatmaster, A Master of Trinity House Vessell Alert, and a watch officer from P & O, who holds his MCA fast rescue craft certificate. With regards to kit to use we have a good relationship with IYWAC and Hampshire Police marine section, so can use there equipment, plus have various other types of larger vessels we can get out hands on.

As I have said previously I think that you do a good job in educating minors, and keeping them off the streets, and your crews are dedicated. If problems are being illustrated to you on this forum then it may be an area that needs
addressing within your organisation. Cowes Inshore Lifeboat has had its problems in the past, but these have nearly all been sorted, via training, and discussions with those people who are responsible for the errors to establish where it went wrong and what could be done in the future to prevent.

I agree a MCA Fast Rescue craft is a very professional qualification ; but
the training course is for the fast ribs carried on cruise and many other
ships . It really only concerns handling of the craft , and the recovery
of persons in the water , plus a straight or side tow. It does not cover
how to right a capsized cat with its mast stuck in the mud , sailboards
with or without slats , and the pure recovery techniques of the sort
of problems which are covered in detail by the RYA Safety Boat ,
and IYT Rescue Coxswain . That although you have 4 Advanced Power
Boat Instructors , you do not mention any holding RYA Safety Boat
Qualifications , or instructors on the dicipline


With regards to your piece about using the word "lifeboat" Under the SSRO (solent sea rescue organisation) we are allowed to use this word as are other independents in the Solent area, such as Freshwater, Hamble, Sandown. [/
The SSR0 has no authority for you to call yourself Lifeboat , and if
they consult the RNLI they will be informed that the RNLI prefer independent
rescue organisation do not use Life Boat . To my mind it does cause
confusion in the public , as they think when putting a donation in your
collecting box they are donating to the RNLI.]
