Vessel maintenance and preparation

Every accident or incident is unique but all occur due to a series of events, circumstances or failures.

  1. Be prepared for as many of these possibilities as you can by having a vessel which is fit for the purpose for which it will be used and well-maintained
  2. Our seasonal maintenance checklist will help you keep your vessel shipshape all year round.
  3. Carrying the appropriate safety equipment for the waterway you are boating on will also dramatically reduce the chance of a small failure causing a catastrophic accident 
  4. Do not allow the vessel to be operated if it is not fit for purpose or in a way that is in breach of any condition of the relevant vessel registration or marine licence.
