Boat security on cars
Following several incidents over the last few months of boats coming off cars whilst they are being driven, paddlers are being advised to check the tightness of straps on cars before you drive off, most of these incidents have happened on the way home. If you stop during the journey then it is advised that you to check to see if there has been any slackening off of the straps during the journey. So far there have not been any serious incidents, but this has been down to exceedingly good luck, REMEMBER IT IS THE DRIVERS RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK. If your boat does become detached during transit then you can find yourself with an expensive repair bill at best, or action by the police for an insecure load or causing an accident. If you are unsure about how best to secure your boat, or want any advice please speak to a coach.
