New RNLI safety films for fishermen - as the most dangerous month of the year comes round again.

Statistically, January sees more fatal accidents than any other month in the commercial fishing industry.

Modifications to your boat, such as installing new equipment or changing internal layout, can affect its stability at sea. Find out what effects these changes can have – and how to counteract them.

If you’re planning to make changes to your boat: 

  • ensure adequate freeboard 
  • consider weight creep (also known as stability creep) 
  • when working out the maximum load allowed consult an MCA surveyor, naval architect or Seafish Marine Services before any major changes, whether it’s an addition or position change.
