Ribbing in Venice

This happened in 2012 but I have only just been sent the photos and had to share them . Like many, this particular Polish SeaSafari operator decided to take his rib on holiday. His destination was Pula. Once in Pula and having a rib he just had to go to Venice. Looks good with the Gondolas

Thanks for sharing Andre.

600hp on tap and keeping it at tick-over... now that takes discipline.

Well to be fair the engines are twin Optimax 225 with 350 labels on the cowls .

Due to strong competition for the rides kids check the max HP before they select the best for them rib ride. . White knuckle rides is the name of the game on the Polish coast.
