Lunch Trip To Cowes Yesterday

Made a quick excursion to Cowes for lunch on Thursday in our 23ft Sportfish demo boat (no tubes I`m afraid) and lo and behold what was tied up at the visitor berth was one of our 520 RIBs! Anyone on here?

Also saw Ribbet on mooring up towards fuel berth and a Pascoe SR7 with Evinrude 250DI whilst fueling up.

Looking at it closely I think it was one I used when working for Mr Garton - I recognise the compass - I screwed it on! He sold it to a yacht charter company in Cowes.
