While browsing I noticed that Captain Chris Bone of Pacifc yacht Deliveries
offers to send people his safety check list.
The following is an extract from his web site, in case people are interested in it.
Since starting operations Pacific Yacht Deliveries has built up an extensive safety checklist. This list is applied to yachts that we delivery in order to assess their suitability for safe offshore passages and for insurance purposes.
As a free service to bona-fide offshore cruising yacht owners we are happy to send you a copy of this checklist for your personal use. It's great as a pre passage safety check and also very useful for people purchasing or commissioning a yacht.
This safety check list represents a lot of work by Pacific Yacht Deliveries so we are keen to insure that it is only distributed to private individuals. To obtain a copy of the lsit as a PDF attachment please send an email to (yachtskipper AT igrin.co.nz) Please include your name, the name of your yacht and both your shore based and at sea email address. The attached PDF will be sent to your shore based email address.
