The reason why Critical comments on the formal inquiry into the sinking of the FV Gaul were drafted is best expressed by the paragraph below.

Extract from the Code of Professional Conduct for corporate members of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects:

"2. The Institution demands of its Corporate Members additional obligations:
"Every Corporate Member shall at all times so order his/her conduct as to uphold the dignity and reputation of his/her profession: and to safeguard the public interest in matters of safety and health and otherwise"

These comments have been published here for the purpose of raising public awareness and interest in an issue that should be of major concern.
If we cannot put our trust in the findings of a Governmental Formal Inquiry, what other mechanism exists within British society that would enable us to establish the truth?
