Take her on a bench seat and spin the boat on its own axis first clockwise then anticlockwise and see how she feels about sliding from side to side and getting battered ribs then put her on the jockey seat and do the same manouvre to see the difference.

In the meantime the rest of us will retire to a safe distance to enjoy the show

Everybody is very welcome to Greece if they want to come for the summer to change the scenery. Once you try it, I bet you will not go RIBing in the UK ever again.

There is only one compnay that does it
MOSTRO. But I think they charge a fortune per day.
If you are interested I'll ask them or if you prefer this is their web site

www.mostro.gr

Their inflatables are OK but not anything fancy.

Manos,

Thanks - had a look @ the site (mostly in english, phew) and would appreciate you finding out the cost (daily and weekly) of charter - not a serious idea, but an idea never-the-less.

Daniel

Re: UPDATE

I have had a lengthy chat to Mr.Tony Saunders the harbourmaster for Mayflower Marina; he has been most helpful and will make every effort to accommodate all our ribs. [/B][/QUOTE]

I have made my hotel arrangements in the Invicta Hotel arriving Friday 9 May I will tow my Seahawk to Plymouth and most probably will want to launch Saturday morning but if we arrive early then will launch friday. The length of my rib is 6.3 mtr.

If anyone is still considering the Invicta then please hurry not many rooms left for that weekend . A double room is 60.00
I will be arriving with my wife both proudly wearing our Ribnet polo shirts.

Afternoon

If I get the time I will be coming by sea from Lymington so we could organise to meet on route some where. I'll let you know for sure if I can make it and if I can if any one wants a lift from Lymington they are more than welcome.

If the Invicta Hotel becomes full (and it seems to be filling fast!!) there is an alternative.

Right next door is another place called the Cranbourne Hotel:

www.cranbournehotel.co.uk

it seems very nice and is an attractive, well-kept establishment. I didn't persue making an arrangement with them, however, as they had no meeting room for our slide-show.
(In the Invicta we are taking over the whole of the dining room for our meal and meeting-it's ours for the whole evening.)

The Cranbourne could offer you a very convenient alternative, accomodation-wise, to the Invicta as they are bang next door and you therefore will not have too far to stagger.

Er, Charles. I don't think you mentioned the meal, did you?
