Safety Boat Cover is not just about a guy sitting in a boat all day at a project. We believe that Boat Crews should be highly skilled and qualified in boat handling, search and rescue techniques and first aid. Our boat crews are required to be alert, friendly, co-operative and ready to help out. They all hold recognised qualifications and many are members of voluntary organisations such as lifesaving, Yacht, boat and dive clubs. Many own their own boats and are currently or have been R.N.L.I. lifeboat crew members.
S.O.A.S. Safety Boats is owned and managed by Brian Dilly (an ex R.N.L.I. Lifeboat coxswain) and son Alex. Brian holds an advanced powerboat certificate as well as diving and first aid qualifications. Experienced in providing safety cover for major oil and gas construction and maintenance projects along the Milford Haven Waterway he also has a vast wealth of local knowledge aquired from more than 25 years experience in leading diving groups to the abundance of offshore dive sites along this sometimes unpredictable stretch of the South West Wales coast.
Consultant training and safety advisor Peter Bounds has over 40 years of boat handling and lifeguarding experience. With 22 years as Principal of a Watersports Training Centre he is a powerboat instructor and first aid trainer.
MD and operations manager Brian is very much "Hands on" in the company.
He personally organises the daily boatlaunch which puts him in the position of being able to personally brief every crew member at the start of each shift.
Alex Dilly has gained years of operating experience under the supervision of his father and has been complimented frequently on the quality of his boathandling, most recently on the tricky rescue/transfer of passengers from the in danger of sinking pleasure boat "Lady Helen"
