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.

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 Issues - July 2022

POWERBOATS - We have been advised by Adrian, our power boat engine maintainer, that there is a distinct possibility that our larger Tohatsu engines may be started inadvertently in gear if the 'Gear Selection Lever' is is not positively set in the neutral position. At this stage it would appear that this maybe the result of wear and tear during the life of the engine.
To ensure these boats (Jenneau 1, Jenneau 2, Jenneau 6 and Planing boat 7) are safe to use, it is important that when starting the engine, the 'Gear selection Lever' must be POSITIVELY in the NEUTRAL position and NOT moved slightly forwards or backwards from that central position. If not it will result in the boat moving as soon as the start button is pressed.

See new 'hoop' placement on boat sheds for putting away and taking out powerboats.

To get in touch either send us an email or call into the club when we are running organised racing.
