LOL - backing track for the weekend! TBH, the legs up and down were no place for a small RIB. The right call was made by the skippers involved.

Ahhhhhh as a result of this and other recent posts I have finally seen the light ie. my twin engined 7.4 m ex SAR vessel is a "small" RIB best suited to a "nice one day cruise" to Ardbeg as long as I don't ignore a gale warning.

Hail to the "Beast" and its fearless crew.

Wales? Oh, I dunno, it's a long way, I could be 30 miles from safety, the waves might be big, I might need a tow or even have to abandon ship. Worse, I might miss closing time in the Gazelle...

Seriously though, she'll be in the arms of another man by then and I will have to get over it
