Talking of the Corinth never been through it but have stood on the bridge over it - is it free to navigate and is there a speed limit??? Would be an amazing experience in a RIB at 50kts!!!! Very James Bondish!!!

No I'm affraid that there is aspeed limit of 7 knots I think. Is not free to navigate and you pay something like Euro 30-40 for a RIB. It goes by size but is not much.
When you go West is quite difficult when you come out as there is always a NNE wind force 7-8 blowing in the Korinthian Gulf at that point. After a few miles out everything returns back to normal.

Gpong East is much better.

These RIB 'tents' can be removed. It takes 5 mins to put them up and 5 mins to take them down. However, most people in Greece leaving them on like you see on the photo as is a pain to try to put them up and down in 35C+.

Our new SAfrican built boats will have these 'tents' so that people can sleep on them at night is they wish (the new boats can sleep up to 4 adults in 2 double berths)

Hi!
Nice photo. I were there this year.
If I remember the first rib has an yamyha 200 HP.This is the bay of Spartohory
with my prefered taverna.
One photo is of Fiskardo.

In the mediterranean see is better to have a bimini or a camp if you like to do nautical camping.
I have do an extension of my bimini, in 2 minuts you can armed or remove that.
This photo shows it.I have take it on A beautiful bay of Atokos island lookink SW.

Yassu Manos! What do you think about my Rib-camera ? :-))
