gnomad Padstow Speed Boat accident (6) RE: Padstow Speed Boat accident 06 May 13


Yes, Charmion, that's a term widely used in UK at least. Comes from Rigid(hulled) Inflatable Boat.

Fast ones are widely called speedboats, but our guest of 7.55 appears to know differently, and I am willing to learn.

Guest's point about what is often called the 'dead man' switch is well made. Correctly functioning and used, such a device might have prevented at least some of the damage to people, but it is early to be making judgements.
