Strange story!

Well, my friend in Gibraltar took these photos in the lunch break

Do you think it was a quicky?

Err...... i think they might have punctured & deflated ? Why the hell did they launch the liferaft ? There is a perfectly good rib on thier boat they could have launched , and one on the stern !

Looks like the stepped hull stopped it sliding back into the water ! I knew they were usefull !

I completely classless bit of helming - try explaining that one to the boss - I didn't see the launch as I had my eyes closed .

As its Gibraltar, my reading of the pictures would be a delierate ramming/intercept, of the fast rib doing some sort of illegle run to/from Africa. I may be wrong ...

Will be keeping a close eye on customs auctions for the rib though, looks nice

Both boats seem to have blue lights on them if you look closely!
