And dont anybody start lecturing me about bells and sound signals....rules they may be but the department of token gestures needs to have a review.
A bell is required to be sounded in fog...thats the rules. Ridiculous?..perhaps. But if thats what the rules require then you need to have one onboard. I have no problem with having a bell onboard even though I have never needed it because of my electric sound signal.

the NZ Cat 1 requirements with the extremely basic USCG list,
I assumed so. I also guess that on both sides, there are issue that make the usual Joe Bloggs scratch his head. I had previously believed that you had no standard at all. As some that had previously expressed rather strong views led me to understand that there must not have been any standard.
As I have said in the Past, not all the Cat1 standard is bad. Just one or two points.
Noe Ties sent me an email today saying their inspection is done. I will ask him to pop in here and let us know the details.
Actualy even better, I will ask him if he can start a new thread on Cat1.


For God so loved the world..........He didn't send a committee.
