Sub-5metre boys' day out.

Yet another photo call on Osea Island at the end of a scorching day out on the Blackwater. I am delighted to report that Daniel performed faultlessly on his first ever day driving a RIB, amazed everyone with his trailer reversing and has renounced his jetski for a life of ribbing.

Looks like you had a great day - the Blackwater looks good. I must check it out before not too long. I launched at Southwold this afternoon and headed south for a bit. Sea was dead still, if a bit hazy.

Phil (& Daniel),

Looks like you had a fantastic day. Rather of been there than Malaysia although retail opportunities for "genuine" Rolex's are bit less widespread on Osea Island!

If you repeat the trip (as I'm sure you will) another time we'll meet up. If the weathers that good I'll get my hardboat wakeboarder types to bring their hairdressers boat out for a spin!

Cheers,
Alan

Is that you with the shorts on Mr Davies? Looked a great day. I saw the thread on Friday about going out yesterday and was kicking myself for buying my boat off of a two bob dealer who's only interest is selling Campion bow riders with wakeboard towers, ( have'nt got Ribeye back yet) i think he's taking the Pi-s.


Hope to see you soon.

Richard

No, Richard, I was taking the picture. My legs are far hairier than any of those featured in the above photo, not to mention a tad shorter! That's me on the first page driving the Searider. Please note that my distorted face is purely the result of the g-force generated by the Honda 30 and has nothing to do with an accident of birth.

Let me know as soon as you get the Ribeye back and we'll get a cruise organised - can't wait to see that Yammie in action

Took this looking back at 30 knots on Saturday, just to remind you of the old days mate
