Sea of troubles

Have your say

Our entirely voluntary RNLI ­rescue service is the best ­available and is receiving an increasing number of call-outs from fishermen in small craft who are badly equipped and trained in seamanship.

This increases the risk to their own lives and those of the ­lifeboat crewmen called out to rescue them.

It is perhaps time for the ­safety-at-sea regulations to be ­extended and tightened up for all sea-going vessels.
