Stephen that is very clever how did you do that? Looking at your image and looking at the photo which I originally posted they look to be taken from completely different angles, the photo would appear to be taken from a position more in front of the rib what do you think?

So they can, but someone STILL needs more practice with photo shop.

I wasn't commenting on the boat or the event, just that the photo shown was doctored.

That was the point I was making. The event looks genuine enough shame it was not on the video clip to see the landing

Shaggy I have asked my friend who took the photo the same question, now he had no idea that I was going to post it on Rib Net when he sent it to me but I thought it was too good not to share (little did I know what the reaction would be), I have asked him to have a look at all the comments on this site and I think it would only be reasonable if he could confirm if it has been doctored or not – I don’t think it has.

Now he tells me that they shot a roll of film also that day and he is almost certain the answer is on the roll of film – he is waiting to develop the roll so I guess we will all have to wait.

It was too good not to share. It provoked a discussion, which surely is what discussion forums are all about

If it is genuine it will be even more fascinating because of the odd anomalies about it which make it look fake - it would be fascinating to give it to a professional who hadn't seen this discussion (and didn't know whether or not it was genuine) and see what he would make of it

I came, I Saw, I Flew!

I was out yesterday evening in Ronan & Joe's new 9m Sport RIB. We left the sea below us a few times. running at speeds of up to 40knots in seas of around 3m is a real blast. Looking at changing from the 7m Diving rib (excalibur) to a 8.5m with 260 yanmar diesel. I honestly could not believe the turn of speed and the response from their 350. It just ate sea! really really impressed. Well wear lads. Just reading the thread, believe me they fly! No really they do.
