What’s your safety role when you’re on the water? Ever have that niggling feeling that something wasn’t a good idea or that things weren’t going as planned? Do you have more questions than answers about...
• What to do if the boat springs a leak
• How someone could keep a watchful eye on you in case you don’t come back in time
• Things that have happened in the past and what you could do if it happens again
• Expiry dates on equipment: when and where to find them
