Hello. I am shortly to give a presentation at the French Lifeboat Service (SNSM) conference, talking about 'preventative' activities, that is trying to get recreational boaters to be aware of the risks to be found at sea, and to thus prevent incidents. In the UK we (the RNLI) have a well established programme. My theme is "Prevention is better than cure" and I am basing this on Benjamin Franklin's quote "An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure". I can't find such a phrase in French - the nearest I can get is "Mieux vaut prévenir que guérir", but that doesn't quite have the same meaning. Can anybody help, please?
