it is a long climb at low water on a 10m spring tide. We are not using a rib on these jobs any more but wheels would have helped last week under the cat

Buzzi FB40

As some of you may know I took part in RB2008 aboard what I think is the best boat in the world a Buzzi FB40 with twin SeaTek 750hp diesels joined to TriMax surface drives.

At the hands of the Andy M , Andy S and Nick it is a very very fast ride and at no time over 2000(ish) miles did I get wet from spray or anything near. It sure lands hard but loves the rough cus there is no need to slow down.

On our way back from Portsmouth I hand-held my Canon G9 in video mode and took the following film. Although IT is my thing I've only just manged to get the video onto YouTube

[YOUTUBE]<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/EjbOabIGYB8&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/EjbOabIGYB8&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>[/YOUTUBE]

You need to wait 30 secs for the fun to begin.

This is a wake and a half and brings a smile to me as I have it on all my PC's and my BB Storm.

Regards

Mark
