it wasn't too bad because there was no chop... obviously if the boat is 'banging' thru the waves we can't behave like hooligans!

it was a great mornings fun...

This is a 30' ex-US military Novamarine that I reconditioned and sold for use as a commercial dive boat - it's now in use on Maui, Hawaii. It has twin 300hp Iveco diesels turning Vosper PP jets, Stidd Special Mission seats, Interphase Twinscope side/forward scanning sonar, Garmin 3210 network, and the unusual antenna on the radar arch is for a SeaMarshall MOB alerting unit that can locate and point to divers in the water.

The guy taking the pics must have had some serious bottle to take his eyes off the sea ahead...


Probably the best RIB pictures I have clamped my eyes on. Cool.

Had One Red Bull Too Many

I liked this thread so i thought i'd bring it back to life. We just had a long weekend in Poland so me and my freind Przemek took advantage of the nice weather and took a Parker 630 with the mercruiser 1,7 diesel out for some big air time in Łeba. We launched the Rib in Gdynia and shot across 60nm to łeba for 2 days. Łeba always has nice big seasto play around in .

This is my fav pic, taken by AndyB007 at the end of Febuary whilst off Old Harry Rocks at Swanage.

I wish that someone had a camera Sunday as I think I got Solent Viper more air with a similar attitude to the photo's of the SR5.4 that Andy posted, was a little scary actually and am sure I got 45 degrees Passengers seemed to enjoy it though

Kind of understand how Nasher felt as I don't like not seeing the road ahead.
