I went out on a sea trial of a Tornado RIB I now intend to buy and was treated to some wonderful sights around the Mersey

The RIB had an experienced helmsman in TIG (sorry I am not allowed to show TIG , probably because I couldn't get a photo of him anyway ) he is an active Lifeboat crew member.
We were able to travel alongside and transfer our passenger while still under way.
