So was that you in the tatty SR54 'rescuing' the scantily clad young lady who decided to go for a swim?

It was me. I did not rescue her though as new her game. We did however grab another, who decided to go for a swim, but then found she could not get back on the boat she jumped off.

With regards to the boat, yes it was tatty. It was borrowed from a school as out boat is too big for that kind of event. Next year however we will have our own smaller boat as are having a small rib made for the river work we do.

What boat were you on.

I remember. I think she liked the thought of being pulled out of the water. However we were not willing to play her game, but was concerned about her slipping and knocking her head on the boat then going in the water.

She did ask us to rescue her, when she was in the water for which we said, we dont rescue swimmers !!

From what we saw I think she just liked the idea of men in general!

I think you were extremely professional with the way you (didn't) handled her. I'm sure she was winking at you on more than one occasion...
Nice work slowing down/diverting a couple of the idiots too. I saw you get hit at least twice. Difficult job (specially in drysuits in that heat) well done.

Which one were you btw? Hair on head or hair on chin? I think I was wearing the only ribnet t-shirt there.

Were you on the SR5.4 with the Etec 50 on the back?
