We had a company outing round Ramsey the other week, and when your boat did a crash stop just off the lifeboat station, it caused many "we've got to go on that" comments

Trying to hide behind a rock at the Smalls back in June





Unfortunately, I didn't get any with the lighthouse alongside, we were round the wrong side at the time.

We're working on it, case of time, tide and days off with the cameraman! Namely me!

Looking forward to putting together some serious footage when the conditions are right, but I have a full time job so getting time off, and the right conditions available is difficult. However I want to get some more footage uploaded soon. Watch this space as they say, also you could subscribe to the venturejet youtube channel and then you'll know when we add more footage.

Any requests other than seeing her out and playing in bigger water?

Ahh the famous Hamilton Turn (aka handbrake turns are us...)

I haven't been able to ask the people in the pic if it's okay to upload so it's been to Photoshop but I think you'll like the pic all the same.

The cameras always come with me, but I've failed to see you up by Ramsey as yet!! - almost like the boat goes into hiding

Now that Autumn is arriving, we should be able to get some trips in the North Pembs direction.....

I had the pleasure of doing my advanced pb course at the same time as Tim a good while back in Neyland during an unusually cold weather snap. Learned much about the anchoring off the beach etc... (Tim may remember me getting my anchor sizes 'slightly' confused!!).

My favourite photo of an Ocean Dynamics shows a boat full of people up to their waists in white water - an awesome site and perfectly safe as it will all go straight out at the back.

I never met Shaun White but I spoke to him on the phone several times - he was such a nice bloke and a true gent. Couldn't believe it when I heard he had passed away.

Well that's ruined me! I'm off to find the holly grail of "cheap" jet ribs ya MkII Pac 22s Just need to find some lolly to buy it with. I do get concerned when picking up divers about propellers.

Simon,

Good luck with your hunt for the grail I'll stick to beautiful Shearwater, 440HP of Yanmar muscle channeled through a Hamilton 274 jet.

What a rush!

An original Ocean Dynamics RIB with all the power needed to operate safely in our waters. She handles like a dream.

Enjoy your MkII Pac 22 if you ever get one. If not, keep your eyes open for a Ribworker, you know you won't regret it!
