what a difference a week makes!

Someone has told the weather it's June! The Aurora pic was taken last week when it felt like winter but the others were taken today! Friends Helen and Carl traveled from the Midlands to spend a day on the Solent and were rewarded with good weather! Hope SIB pics are allowed on a RIB site, but they did spend spend all day sitting on very very very hard seats....no padded RIB seats for them...so they deserve the accolade of eternal fame on RIBNET! ER...and they didn't believe I'd post the pictures. Sorry!

Hey, I do it all the time!

Great pictures. Is your zodiac a mark II or a mark III ? Also, how do you like the futura hull system?

Nice pics. I think that one if turned right side up would be a very interesting photo. I love taking photos where the people aren't posing or facing the camera. It gives a mood of spontenaity (sp?). And makes the viewer more curious to see whats going on in the photo. Or thats just me. I wish I had a sib again. THey're just as fun.

Boatster; it's called voyeurism

I'm getting worried about you know

Yes, SIBs still a load of fun. Cant beat them for their lightweight qualities and flatish bottoms. just pull them up the beach and launch from just about anywhere!
We do miss my Achilles and wish I could have afforded to keep as well as my new RIB.
cheers Dal

Thanks limeydal - well I can definately say we had flatish bottoms by the time we finished! Carl has now added some nice, soft, shock-absorbing foam to the seats to make the going a little softer in future! Glad everyone liked the photos - you got some good ones there Jewels. It was only our 3rd time out on the water so I think we did pretty good and look forward to the next time -unfortunately we are not in an ideal location in the Midlands to go so often. Proud to have made it on to the Rib.net site! Hey -anyone any good ideas for stopping so much water coming over the back of the boat? We have a 40hpw engine but seem to get more water in the back than seems right and are looking for good ideas.........

Great to see you on ribnet! and thanks for sending the photos of us on our RIB on CD...we are normally out on our own, so can't take pics of ourselves on the water! Not without one of us being man overboard and i'm chicken!

hope the thunderstorms disappear..want to get out on the water to see all the ships in the solent...looking forward to seeing lots of photos on ribnet!

J & M

No worries Dal,

I already knew I had a few screws loose, or in ribspeak hypalon leaks. I like to shoot the pics when they're not expecting, voyeur that I am. Just when you though you were alone "click"
