    If the MCA have impounded a boat for going to the rescue of a drowningw child, They must now test any craft that goes to the rescue of someone in destress. nd that craft must now be impounded if it fails the "tests".

    Following from this, the MCA, must now introduce mandatory testing of all and any craft that could be used to rescue someone in distress as required by Regulation 33 of SOLAS.

    Failure to do so will, (not could), result in a person in charge going to the rescue of a casualty when their craft does not meet MCA safety codes for rescue craft.

    is the mca fit for purpose?
    is the rnli in on the confiscation of a competitor's rescue boat?
    this is quite unbelievable.

    This is crazy, it is a general purpose boat used by volunteers for rescues when a fast & local response is needed. The RNLI are excellent, but cannot possibly respond as quickly to incidents at Hope Cove as the local boat can.
