Spot on PD yoyo has a 4.7 mtr and will be going round the island. Also the round Britain challenge was done by ribs under 5 meters.

i don't have a statement after every comment but i'm working on it ?
If the weathers fine you will get round no probs, dont worry as i said some will blast off know matter what the weather is like,but all i,m saying is it some point it can get a little rough and its allways nice to know that you have company if your at the back, sometimes people stop to change fuel,have a leak or adjust something and before you know it your alone at the back just my health and saftey head saying it maight be a good idea "Dont Panic Mr Mannering"

Yes agreed but some people have pointed out that they are coming to gain experiance and have never done a trip like this before, we all know that at some point round Anglesey if its a bit windy you can think what the fook am i doing here and we are talking 25 plus ribs not going round with your mate i mean if everyone says no need then cool

I resemble that remark
So speaks a man thats average is 2 trips a year Now HP dont sink to the Germans level please and can i point out that a Black Shadow is just like any normal drysuit not expensive not special but if you like to go out when its really cold and wet then its a great bit of kit so stop talking the p mr k just remember who won the War...!!!
