No danger but lots of thrills: conditions that Ribs were made for so it's a shame that no one else went for it. Nonetheless, appreciate Swedishjedi's attempt: it's a long way from Portsmouth against wind and tide. Hope to meet up with you (and everyone else) next time.
sorry dude was very up for this trip but i have to make sure the weather is spot on before towing 160 miles ...one day i will have a rib that can handle it
