Re: Survival Of Virus On Your Boat

Good luck Miles. I make you right about being the best place to be in this very strange time. I was on my mooring and looking to see it out for a while, but unfortunately the marina was closed down on Tuesday morning. I don't quite understand the logic as I felt it was probably the safest place to b...

Re: Speeding from the outset.

Yes Miles, it continues relentlessly. The speed indicators that you mention are indeed in the wrong place, and are not calibrated properly either. Those that are travelling at 4.9 mph are greeted with a "happy green sign" !!!!! The returners actually slow down to decide which way to navigate and by ...

Re: Speeding from the outset.

Sounds like a good plan Miles, but wonder whether the BA would invest in the capital needed for the equipment, even though my fees this year alone could purchase one, and a small proportion of the fees that Richardson's pay would furnish the entire area. I will put forward the idea in my next commun...

Re: Speeding from the outset.

I hope the boat that got hit took the offending boat details and reported the incident. It is really sad that this "sh*t" goes on.

Re: Speeding from the outset.

100% Miles. I have witnessed the overtaking near me. I cannot understand what they are trying to achieve!! I will document all I can while there, and will continue to make the BA aware of all I see. It is up to them to reign in Richardson's. This should not be a difficult problem to sort out. Signs ...

Re: Speeding from the outset.

On Monday 20th I was visited by one of the BA Rangers who spent a couple of hours monitoring the situation. However Richardson were previously spoken to regarding the speeding, and the situation has improved at my location. I showed him a number of videos, including the post from miles, which again ...

Re: Speeding from the outset.

MOST OF THEM. You seem to be filming a short distance from Richardsons yard, so I would assume those speeding boats returning there, had an instructor aboard. I arrived here Monday morning and I think word is getting round!! Your video is a prime example showing most speed. I will be pointing it out...

Re: Speeding from the outset.

Miles I posted a video on youtube. I need some editing practice, but it shows 5 boats over a 5 minute period on the 8th October last year.

Re: Speeding from the outset.

I agree Hylander that there are not many "genuine accidents" that were unavoidable. Most of the problems come from pure inexperienced, and worse, uncaring boaters. I also agree wholeheartedly with Luna. As far as speedometers go, most people can get one on their mobile phone quite easily now and it ...
