CO alarms on boats - BSS seeks your views - closing date 9 November 2018

The Boat Safety Scheme (BSS) has launched a public consultation proposing BSS requirements for carbon monoxide (CO) alarms on boats. The proposals promote checks to be introduced for suitable CO alarms in good condition and in suitable locations on all classes of boat with accommodation spaces. The proposed mandatory new BSS Requirements are intended to come into effect from January 2019 and be implemented as BSS Checks on 1 April 2019. 

Tell us about Winding Holes!

Have you spotted a winding hole that's been chained off, or now has boats permanently moored in it, or where the width's been reduced? Please let us know so we can lobby navigation authorities to try to get these vital areas improved or reinstated. HNBC carried out a joint survey with the Inland Waterways Association because both organisations are concerned about the gradual loss of these turning points.  The survey results are now being studied, but if you spot anything new, please let us know anyway by emailing navigation@hnbc.org.uk.
