Easdale RIB Rendezvous 2012

I've just realised that I'm simply referring to the above Event as "Easdale". This bodes well for the event - I just assumed everyone would know what I meant as with well over 40 RIBs there and good word everywhere, the event should be an Annual for years to come.

Tony - thanks again and best of luck in the future - please do one next year!

And that doesn't cover the drink either. There's no pockets in a shroud, lad - money well spent!

LOL - many's the boat was sunk by that particular "U-boat". If he finds our life-ring, I'd like it back
