I'm guessing Jambo possibly meant pics of the RIB!

You all look very happy though

Tx folks for the pics they were great!! The pub, grub and chat looked good. I was as Willk said I was interested in action photos out at sea to see the rib in action, it certainly looked like a great day in what looks like an awesome rib. Looking forward to the vid Andre.
Only sorry I was not one of the lucky ones!!

Thanks very much Andre for your kind invitation aboard Solent Blast Yesterday. Ryan and I realy had a fun time and enjoyed every second of the trip.

As mentioned before on this thread it was nice to put a few names to faces for all the good it does me, as I'm terrible at remembering names and even managing to call Dave (Avocet), John

I'm still constantly amazed how quiet the Verado is and thought that at least two of them should be noiser than one....Wrong! I guess that like most that own a RIB, some roar of the engine should be expected at speed. Even above the noise of the wind rushing past ones ears! These are very impressive engines however with a very smooth power output and propelled the Parker at 44 knotts, 14 up with what I beleived were full tanks. I would guess that the overall weight of the 900 was well in excess of 3 Tonnes (Andre please correct me if I'm wrong). So in my books gets a BIG tick.

One moment of the trip I will remember is when we were returning from Cowes to Southampton and Andre found the wake of a large container vessel coming into Port. As we hopped, skipped and jumped over one of the series of wakes given off by this Giant, the bow caught the top of one of the waves causing a massive not so fine spray to cascade over the heads of us crew. Jism and Jean where sat in front and took the full force. Jism looked back toward me with water droplets and streams coming from his face....A Kodak moment that will remain in my mind for along time. Thanks Ben!

So all in all a Fantasic get together. Thanks Andre

Ryan and Andy
