Comes with massive taxpayer subsidies for the first 18 yrs, hence mass produced by unskilled labour.

Seems about par for the course Paul, puts on ear defenders so he doesn't have to listen to the senile babbling of his Dad.

Two little ones messing around with boats and not a lifejacket in sight.

Hi John,

I really don't know what happened to the boys jacket in that pic, in the 18 months that he crewed the boat with me and my skipper he always wore it. Perhaps he'd just had his nappy changed or done a pooh and not put it back on yet  Grin



Me, I'd struggle wearing one over the dry suit  Grin and as for my 60 year old fisherman/skipper, he can't even swim but steadfastly refused to wear one.

Cheers, Paul

Hi John,

the boy was at sea for eighteen months up until he was three, not through choice but through necessity, his low center of gravity made him far better on the deck than my skipper or I  Grin

Personally I always wore a buoyancy vest in preference to a life jacket, I found the padding it afforded useful whilst bending over rails and gunwales. It kept the wind off and was not too hot in summer. My skippers attitude was typical of most of the fishermen in these parts who saw learning to swim or wearing a lifejacket as tempting fate.

Having said that I know of several that have drowned who would have been saved by one, but then had they not been drinking they would not have fallen in the sea. The only sober person I know who drowned at sea was wearing a lifejacket and it didn't go off, another reason why I prefer the buoyancy vest.

Cheers, Paul

Paul,

I agree with you there.  I have often thought that there would be a market for a bouyancy aid/life jacket which was a bouyancy aid when deflated and a life jacket when inflated.  Option for manual/pull cord/fully automatic inflation.

When sailing offshore, harnesses were regularly worn and used but rarely life jackets - mainly only in fog.

Bu$$er me, what loose a slave, at that price, noooo, ba on the water but not off it as it's where we live.  It would be on all the time otherwise and the boy has to learn.  If duffers, will drown.   facepalm  He just has to have ultra supervision and when he does fall in I just make sure he swims to the side and I help him out.  Or he falls in the mud, then we just leave him, too smelly!   flyingpig

Most of the time I will die if I went ob.  I make sure I don't with a lifeline short enough so it won't allow me even over the side until my time comes.

Yeah, doesn't a buoyancy aid with all that foam make good body armour, often put one one when its rough.   extrahappy

Re the duffers reference. Last year before cuts and redundancy we had a work team outing to the Lakes. I made that obvious quote and nobody understood or had read the book. The PC brigade have probably banned it from schools because of the sexist title and the name of one of the characters probably wouldn't get through the forum filters. let's try. Anyone out there call their daughter Titty?

Sean, I thought for a moment there that you had called your son Titty!!

I was raised on the books, and intend to read them to my kids when they are a wee bit older.
