Shocking

Scary sight

I see all sorts of unsafe stuff on the river, but this is probably the most shocking yet:

1) Count the children.

2) Count the lifejackets.

3) Count the supervising adults.

How can someone, as skipper of a boat and therefore responsible for so many kids, be so careless?

Another boater noted they didn't even have a dingy on board.

The what if's don't even bear thinking about.

    Just because someone has a lot of money doesn't mean they have a brain. I wonder if the kids with life jackets are his.

  2. Hi Fred

    Too true :)

    As to who gets to wear the lifejackets, maybe they played some kind of musical chairs game?

  3. I agree , No.1 on any sort of boat should be Safety !!! The children are completely dependant on the adults for keeping them safe.

    I'm thinking about wooden doors & how to do them as well as yours.

    Maybe a lesson sometime convenient?

    You are welcome anytime ,I am no joiner though but the purchase of a tenon drill and a basic bench top saw plus a router made all the difference . Also you are welcome to borrow any of these.
