Your Rib

Hi There,

Sorry to hear about the theft. Please send me by e.mail further details and pictures. i am about on the water most days between sheerness and london
as well as the medway. I will pass all information on to the rest of my friends around this stretch of the coast.If this is the craft I think it is and perhaps your friend will confirm this,i was conducting a mud rescue of another rib in this location when your friend came over to get a closer look.If so i have a very good idea and memory of the rib.

Check with the medway ports to see if their camera system picked up this event .their cameras run a fair few miles most directions. Its always worth a go.
