Hurricane ready for launch

Mostly, I use the RIB to go diving, but sometimes it's fun to just play in the waves...

Hi Geir

I know your hometown (Haugesund) very well in fact over the last few years i have spent probably the best part of 8 months working in and around it as my employers are based there (Ostensjo rederi)
I am hoping to go there next summer for 10 days with our rib for some serious fjord exploration! You are lucky to have such a beutifull playground at your disposal.

Simon

If you PM when you get here, we can have a pint or five at one of the quayside pubs....

Ok, i will start saving up now then

Seriously though, i was disapointed with DFDS's decision to stop sailing across to Bergen from Newcastle but while i was up in Karmoy, i heard rumors a group of Norwegian investors were looking to open up a service again??? Until then looking at the drive up through Denmark then across to Christiansand.

I have been lucky enough to sail up and down from Haugusund to Moldre through the inside passages at least 6 times and can safely say it is THE most stunning scenery to be experienced anywhere.

My dream is to do as much as possible of this in our rib, especially around Maloy.....breathtakingly stunning!

Yeah, beer around here is like liquid gold
I was really annoyed when they canceled the ferry service, I had planned to do some diving in the Firth of Forth...
Some years ago, one of my diving buddies had an old trawler converted to yacht, and each September we used to spend a week doing wreck diving expeditions along the Norwegian coast from Kristiansand to Ålesund, Scapa Flow or Shetland - the best of times

WOW!!!....but all of a sudden it seems to be quite a slogg.....how many days to get there, 2? and how 'trailer freindly' was the trip?

If i was ever in a position to organise a 'sortie' for other Ribnet members then this would be my destination of choice....there is nothing like skimming along the base of 1500m tall cliff faces and looking at the echo sounder to see it reading 200M+ depth while looking up to see eagles flying above you.......awsome
Thanks
