Typical... It's just in time and high enough profile for people to cite as an example why the new drink laws for leisure boats should be brought in.

So you dont think drink laws should be introduced for boating? Why on earth not? Drunk or drink impared people should not drive boats! Its simply wrong, and it is obvious some people dont understand, so make it illegal and lock them up.

If you dont drive drunk, the law does not affect you, so why even be interested in it?

Them ribbas are all the same!

Full of safety advice (and more certificates than you can poke a stick at), and self righteous nonsense and superiority (self judged) yet more ribbas fall out of their boats (without lanyards), crash into things, and cause general mayhem than any other boating genre.

They should take some of their own advice!

Ho Hum

If you nobbers actually spent a bit more time using your speedboats instead of just polishing them, you'd probably cause a whole lot more mayhem!

Ribshine (more commonly known as Rimshine!) brings old tubes up nicely, never use on new boats though!!! Stains them black!!
