Safety Notices

This is a page about issues with equipment or for passing on messages to the next Duty Crew.

The main source for reporting breakdowns/faults is still by writing in the BOSONS LOG (on the shelf next to the boiler). If there is an important H &S issue, please ensure you have disabled and labelled the equipment. Report the fault in the Bosun’s log and write a short reminder about it on the white boards at the entrance. Although you may want to use these pages to ensure as many people as possible are aware of issues.

The DutyMan reminder email sent 7 days before a duty, has a short message asking all of the duty crew to check in with this section.

Standing Notices

Be advised that marks should be place MORE than 30 metres from the edge of the water and please do avoid areas where fishing is taking place. 30 metres is 3 sections of the concrete pontoon.

A revised kit list for rescue boats has been issued by the RYA. Wire cutters are no longer a requirement. However, in their infinite wisdom they have declared that fire extinguisher are. You may find this useful to hit a fish on the head with should one land in the boat!
Also for 2018 - a Multi-tool (kept in a waterproof box). THEY ARE NOT FOR DISMANTLING THE OUTBOARDS ENGINES!!

There is a log book on the shelf that contains tasks to be completed on Sunday’s and Saturday’s. This is a requirement of the Food Standard Agency. Please ensure its is signed and dated when the tasks are completed.

Current (July 2019)

New Committee Boat - Stan is now in full use. You need to know that the keys for it are now attached to the red plastic can in the petrol store. The big tank on board is not used. There is an electric winch to be used from inside the cabin. Make sure the engine is running when using it. Lastly, we are experimenting with bird scarers (or to be more precise 'Geese scares') The ones we have so far tried are not standing up to the Hollowell weather - so if one is there - put it back on at the end of the day please.

'Stan the Manual'. This is in the cabin and shows basic working procedures.
Speak to Mike Playle or Stewart Elder if you have any queries on the day.Link to STAN'S PAGE

Sunday Galley - we are experiencing a lack of volunteers to provided food for Sundays. If there is a gap then the weekly enews will state that NO FOOD WILL BE PROVIDED. This leaves the issue of 'Shore Duty'. The DO should assign a suitable person for this role and if possible take out a mobile phone. NO SHORE COVER _ NO SAILING
