Well said.

Good for you.

Not 'foolish' at all.

I wonder how many here actually give a "Donation" to the people who are there to rescue us or just take them for granted !

In the case of the RAF Nimrod, I think you'll find we ALL paid for it!

Yeh, but some have paid more than others!!!!!

I may not be Mr P's greatest admirer, but that is what the rescue services are in place for, and I'd rather see hundreds of thousands of pounds spent rescuing a british taxpayer ( and a canadian coz he's not a yank) than to see it wasted on some waste of space asylum seeker or a member of the royal family having another day out courtesy of us and the RAF.

Difficult decision for the coastguard ?

"The accident happened after more than 30 cocklers - thought to be Chinese who do not speak English - were caught by rising waters in the Hest Bank area"

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/l...re/3464203.stm

But even after this i still have to agree with "TONY" the money we could have saved here could have been "better spent" .. in many ways !!! .... . ( perhaps a memorial that we could take our "Boats" round !!!!!! )



sozzy if this dont make sence or anyfing but the "Booze" is kinda takin effect now ...so i'll probably have to edit this in the mornin to finish wat i was tryin to say.....

In that case, this phrase could be a collectors item...

Hmmm... stand back from the situation and take a good look.... Mr Priddy could lose a lot of respect if the rate at which he's rescued continues.

This is bound to cause a load of aggro, as everyone knows I'm far from Priddy's greatest fan, but it's a funny old world! they gained a lot of respect from peeps last night coz they failed!

part of the challenge was building an indestructable boat, which he obviously didn't, and i really can't see why putting your self in harms way, then getting burned, then getting rescued, generates respect! (other than his/their guts, which was proven on departure, not by the misshap)

I guess we all look at things from a different angle.

Not really. For an ordinary person like myself it's the courage shown by some people in a near-death experience which many powerboat racers also have (remembering the burned boat at Brighton/ the many examples of dangerous stuffs) which generates respect.

Kinnell! and this from a ribber! are you (like Mark Wildey) considering a hardboat by any chance Richard? sounds like you've seen the light



PS. the burned out Italian boat at Brighton was extremely sad, and I felt gutted for them, but it was probably their fault, or certainly would have been if it were our (Team Extreme's) raceboat, as WE prepared it, and had it happened to us, I certainly wouldn't have expected any respect, I would have expected to be called a tosser (again) (and again)

I guess that's different alright...when someone's in difficulties 'out there' I don't care whether they're in a jetski or Brittany Ferries...I'm just worried about them & if I can I'll try to help because I'm a bit scared of the sea.

Don't imagine Team Extreme ever got it wrong but ye must have had a few hairy moments .....
