Hi Craig, glad you sorted out the diesel problem. After Saturday's weather on Loch Fyne I'm not surpised though! I've never been so wet, miserable and chucked around on a RIB - that wrap around screen of yours looked mighty inviting.

RIBase
Fuel guage was showing that it had a 1/4 of a tank left, and it was quite rough and the engine cut out....put more diesel in and away we went.

Found out off of gordon deas about the fuel tank on that boat and he says theres an air lock in the tank of 30 litres or sumthing like that.

just need to remember to fill up every 6 hrs rather than 10!!!
