I was so impressed with the clothing on the Prorainer stand that I bought a new set of waterproofs. Here's Howard and Carol on their stand

This is the console of the Arctic Blue RIB. It's a single engined craft... can you guess what the third control lever is for?

Sorta close, but no cigar!

I believe that the third lever is for the transom mounted mounted quick-release kedge anchor

(Apologies if I've got the wrong lever photographed - JK knows the details as he looked when the sun was out, but it was raining when I looked and there were no staff to ask)

Here's the anchor...

I thought that the best throttle arrangement was on the Bananashark - you can use EITHER the foot or the hand throttle

And our survey said EH ERR . . .

You're wrong and the prawn is right. It controls the bow ballast tank.

As far as I could see, the kedge anchor was controlled from with inthe engine box.

That's a relief then.... I was worried about the anchor release being next to the throttle!

(oops!)
