RIBase
Zodiac Pro

Not exactly the same pomp and ceremony as the launching the QE2, but this is my 7-man Pro prior to maiden launch in 2006. Slipway is in Valtos, Uig, Isle of Lewis. Great place for cruising and fishing. Atlantic rollers keep you on your toes though.

Had a previous Zodiac CGT for over 20 years before the Pro. Probably watched Jacques Cousteau too much as a nipper!

Good luck Spartacus, with your new boat.
Never mind Jacques Cousteau, do you remember Hans and Lotte Hass, in B&W?

But do you remember Phil Cool's impression of Hans and Lotte Hass?

Very Funny
