Honey I shrunk the RIB!

Whilst out today, we were joined by Pete in his new Ribcraft.
It looks a whole lot of fun

I saw it also, I gotta admit while I love bigger ribs it did look like a lot of fun. Pete who was the other rib going backwards around you just off Old Harry and filling the stern with water ? Did you get any pics, was that also soem type of Rib ?

I kinda of fancy the idea of doing up a Rib like that, can I justify having two ribs ?
