A jolly on a Parker

I would like to invite at least 5 RibNet members on a trip to the Needles or perhaps round the Isle of Wight on Saturday 22 September on my demo rib a Parker 800 Baltic . We meet at 9 AM at Southampton Dry Stack. Lifejackets will be provided and these were only serviced at the end of June 2018 or you can bring your own.

This could be an opportunity for anyone who lives in the South but for many reasons has not had the opportunity to go to the Needles or round the Isle of Wight or perhaps for somebody who lives far away and is visiting SBS and could do with a blast in the Solent.

I know that very few have had the opportunity of a ride on a Parker Baltic RIB hence my invitation.

I would expect everybody to share the driving

Who is up for the trip? Please put your user names down - first come first served

This would also be an opportunity to experience SKYDEX shock mitigation flooring

Sorry guys but the Solent which is my playground is on the South Coast. Are you not going to visit the SBS?

Orwell boy, my guess is that you are confusing me with somebody else anyway the invitation is very clear Solent / Isle of Wight. If you are local why not accept the invitation

Thanks Andre ,sorry not getting confused ,just always follow your trips and very impressed , just playing with yarmouth -isle of white ,and great yarmouth in Norfolk , Strikes me that you work for Parker ribs and you have a Demo boat ,and as a salesman all my life my thoughts are that you must be demo ing to somebody , hence surely the solent is not the only bit of water round the uk , i know you south coast boys have nice blue water wheres ours is brown however i think we get a new wind farm every month and i would have thought that support to such industries alongside border control and britains biggest container port may have given cause to venture this way from time to time .
