Safety check list

If anyone would like a copy of my safety check list for their own private use please contact me at yachtskipper@igrin.co.nz and I will send them a copy.
I have developed this list for assessing the safety of yachts that I am asked to delivery. I am professional Captain and New Zealand Safety Inspector.

Hi David,
Sending the check list is a personal favour to cruisers. I like genuine cruisers to contact me personally about this. I do not want it assessable to all as it's a very handy document for my competitors. I can not see an attachment option in the private message window anyway! Please contact me directly by email as I have requested and you will get a copy, as several other readers have already.
Best wishes,

Are charitiable organizations considered "vendors" on this forum?

Just a passing curiosity, rather than anything for or against Oceanwatch.

As I am not soliciting for donations and am only giving stuff away I feel comfortable with the ethics of the situation. I assume that if I was to be considered a "Vendor" there would be costs involved, in which case I would not be happy giving stuff away. I use my Charity and delivery business in my signature file so that people get a sense of who I am and know that I have knowledge in my field.
Best wishes,

Best wishes,
I thought you were looking for people to join... and joining was $25 for the newsletter? Eh... anyway... I was curious because you are an organization looking to promote on here, obviously.

When I was a moderator, I don't recall us ever discussing if a chartitable organization was considered a "vendor" in that they are out looking for publicity in the same way and possibly members, etc... I think you might be our first.

I'm sure you are giving stuff away in this thread for publicity's sake. It's pretty transparent. But... I'm not for or against your organization, merely curious how it fits into our vendor/member structure.

Actually I want to help people just because I can I enjoy it, it makes me feel good, gives me warm fuzzies OK One can chose to take this at face value you know! My safety check list is a great help to people and it's my nature to help. You will find that I also offer my check list in other places on the web. People stop me on the dock occasionally and say "Hey, you're Chris Bone arn't you? The guy who sent me that list, well I made it to New Zealand (big grin), lets have a beer" That sort of thing is what I like to get out of this, it gives me such a buzz Other people get their buzzz from money or sex or academic success or sport and so on. Well now you know where I get a big buzz

If people think that I am doing this just for publicity then it could be just a reflection on their way of thinking. My way of thinking is different.

You will have noticed OceansWatch in another topic. I did not start that topic and had no idea it had started but when I found out I joined and of course posted.

Best wishes, Chris
