Every accident or incident is unique but all occur due to a series of events, circumstances or failures.
- 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
- Our seasonal maintenance checklist will help you keep your vessel shipshape all year round.
- 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
- 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.
