Thanks Andy. The Patrol is a tank and a half and has pulled the trailer & boat over some pretty rugged bush trails.

Arrived at Last

New club dive rib, quite a long drawn out process but we got there in the end. Must say once Ribcraft realised we knew what wanted (eventually) and we knew what we were talking about their customer service was good. They helped us prop the boat ballasted. The attention to detail is excellent and the quality appears good. The also have an excellent loo at their HQ.

That's not the wife, she's only into boats that you can sea fish off so dive ribs are of little significance. The lady in question is actually one of our senior divers deploying a parasol believe it or not - yes British divers are that tough!
