On the Subject of speed...

Watching a recent episode "Seaside Rescue" on Channel 5 I noted that the Dover Lifeboat was proceeding at "Dead Slow" through the harbour on their way to a medical emergency. They stepped on the gas once clear of the harbour, reaching an apparent 20 knots - this was on the way to help a head injured casualty in the English Channel.

Now if they do that, why can't the average pleasure boater? Thay have no reason to hurry whatsoever.
