Agreed
Some of the advice people are looking for can't be found in Google

Like has already been said you get idiots on both camps. In Whitby you have sailors that think cos they have a yacht you give way to them, fisherman that work on the rule Biggest vessel has way.
I was watching one RIB yesterday and he came into the pontoon power more or less full ahead and full astern, full ahead again.... He goes round again and this time just rams the pontoon, no seamanship skills at all.
15 min later he had the hood off the engine as it wouldn't run!

Compulsary training isn't the answer as people would pass it and still drive like nobs.

When I was looking at engines the Etecs we're very new but one tip I read on a US forum was to drop the leg bolts each year and grease because they will be a b*****d to get out after three years

I come from a sailing background and in my past worked as an instructor, when newly qualified one of the basic things drummed into us by the senior instructors.
"Think ahead and be aware of others"
Simple but often forgotten

But that's correct, you should, and you must. Not just in Whitby, but everywhere. It's the law.

Only when they are sailing and I know it's unlikely but also where the other vessel is constrained by its draft or restricted in its ability to manouvre.
