It is made up of a sandwich glass wood glass and about 2" thick. Here are a couple more pics of Sunriders Boat and a sister Rhib 30RB9113. I'm at the helm of 9112.

Pete

a film staring Demi Moore (my next wife by the way) depicted this meathod of recovery very well, the seals line up in the water and await the recovery boat, an inflatable tender is tied to the side and a guy hangs a large ring over the side, (just like the picture) the lined up seals raise an arm high and as the tender whizzes past they catch the loop inside their arm and the force pulls them up and over the edge of the tender, obviously Demi failed to be recovered and her entire squad were thrown back into the sea and made to swim back the 10 or so k's to the training base.

rent the film out or wait till its on the tele again as its worth watching

Just nuts........the pay isn't much more than standard US Marine pay!

Much the same for the british SBS......it's just another section of the armed forces and if you've worked for 'em you know how tight they are!!

Agreed though that jumping off a moving rib bay watch style hurts like a bstrd!!
