    alan I kinda see your point ,,,but my sailboat wieghs in at 6 tons(US),,,,like when forrest gump hits the dock and crushed it , that boat was only going 5 knots,everyone should be (responcible for thier actions ),, also alan explosions and ramings are amplified by water,example a stick of dynomite has more concushion power in water than in air ,longliner

    Lets make a law where everybody has to stay at home and go nowhere - anybody caught outside is shot dead instantly -really be a police state then eh! and everybody would be happy? NO!

    UK is already a police state - any state where only the police have guns is a police state! Bring it on!

    From here in England it seems a very reasonable course as the level is the same as the current level for driving a car - and yes we have just finished the trial of a man who killed his friend hwen he hit the others boat on the way back from a drink. Both drunk, in the dark with no lights.

    Drinking should always be kept away from any machinery - cars and boats included.

    I believe you also have the best looking women! Spain is also tolerant about Mary Wanna too, or is that a rumor? Sam

    Sir, thanks in name of all the beatiful spanish women....:cool:
    About tolerancy, I tend to believe Spain is nowadays tolerant not only with Mari Juana, but also Mari Pepa and all and every tipe of Maris....We have become the tolerance country per excellence. Ask our prime minister...:D
