Swamp raiding!

Test running rescue boat (4.4m rib, 25Hp Johnson Commercial ) Past Uss Alabama, as featured in Steven Seagal film about an angry cook, can't remember the name....
Just noticed a coincidence, the guy in the pic is our cook! On our way to buy fresh jumbo shrimp for a barbecue.

And for those who've been debating the pro's and cons of front and rear wheel drive, this is the way to launch!

Yes Seb I know I said I was working! Sorry but the pics in the swamp got corrupted, can't open them anymore. If I can rescue them I'll post later. Or I'll go out at the weekend and take some more!
