Boat and engine, ect. Performed Faultlessly in realy Foul Conditions! No one felt unsafe or at risk despite a Good Dunking for 5+ hours..God I love that RIB!!
Few conclusions Landlord spot on about Ghecko's a Must!! Not only for Vis-Warmth- AND impact protection...(Avo hit the Consul on Friday and was out of it for a few seconds!
But he's a Tough old Buzzard!
NOTHING IS WATERPROFF BUT COMERCIAL OILSKINS! Watch the Pros.
Used nothing but Compass after first 40 mins on Friday! No time to F with plotter playing up or watching little green line!!
Waves are always the Boss's anyway... and more important to keep an even keel than stay 100% on course.
BIG line of site Compass another MUST when the Going is Tough!
Eat and drink Befor you set off as you may not be able to for some time!
