West Country in the SIB

Some shots of Helford River, some of the 15 laid up freighters off Falmouth, a coaster taking on stone at Porthoustock, and a Shag or two (better get the comments out of your system now!) and getting ready to beach launch at Bigbury in Devon (think I will skip the single handed beach launch next time!) .

and yes - that is a Sea Legs Rib in one of the Helford River shots, sitting on the owners slipway as comfortably as a Ford Fiesta - but a lot pricier!

I believe - and Mollers you may confirm this - that at the bottom of the vehicle ramp down to the house, there is a powered turntable built into the drive, for the owner to turn his car round! Ahh... how the other half live!

There is a turntable there, pretty cool. My parents could do with one of those! I remember the drive being kind of brick paved about 10-12 years ago before I moved out of the village! Have you redone it since then or was that you Chris? I see Ribstuff have now reduced the xd100 to 29 each
