Thanks, like meself, she's getting on a bit (10) but holding up OK

Oddly enough, she was originally fitted with Mariner/Merc 90s but they got the heave in 2004/5, hence me wee Stormtroopers.

She was specced by a nobbur called Nigel Marshall, from Isle of Arran.

I'm in the process of "tidying" her a bit...

R.v.

We, all were certainly startled at the target painted on the radar of a rapidly approaching rib with intercept plans, knowing it was about lunchtime i should have guessed that it was you.
It was also shocking that you managed to meet up with us and not only say hello, but circumnavigate Rathlin and meet us on the other end of the sound.

Jezzzze you think you'd have given us one of your donkeys if you were able to go that fast!

We had a good crossing, not a breaking wave c'ept the one behind us..

Will be repeating the trip shortly.... C you again ? same lunch order !!

Thanks Willk,

I am the photographer who undertook this project. I spent 3 years exploring some of northern ireland's most inaccessible sea caves, many of which had never been photographed before. I exhibited these at the University of Ulster last year.

Here's one from the project that I took on Rathlin Island

The link to the main project page can be seen here

Primo stuff! Welcome to RIBnet.

A friend of mine from Bushmills gave me your website link - he's a big fan of your work and currently attempting to Coasteer some of the caves.

Keep up the good work - don't forget to post a link on here in "Other Stuff" when you have more to show us.

...and get a decent boat
