I didn't know but I do now.

So previously driven ribnet owned boats:
C2 ribs Bulls Eye
Onboard charters Onboard Rascal
Saber Powersports Honda race boat H39
Saber Powersports. Honda race boat H40 (not exactly sure it was H39 and H40 but I have driven two different Hondas at Saber)
Saber Powersports. Mercury Hypercat
C2 ribs Gemineye

So that is 6 ribnet owned boats and therefore 30

Drives pledged on the day of the round the island
Lee Argyle
Landlord
Lakelandterrier
Whisper
Ian M
C2 Ribs (possibly)

Six boats so another 30

So I am up to 60 so far. I still need drives in another 12 ribs at around 3nm per rib to get me right round the island. And this morning I agreed to a 30 bonus if we managed to get the full 18 drives. So there is the potential to extract 150 of my hard earned pounds in total. Anyone else prepared to promise me a drive on the day?

Chris

Thank you very much David.

I now have offers from 7 boats so at roughly 3NM per boat that gets me helming approx 21nm so far

If I can get enough offers to get me helming right round the island we can raise even more money as I can then ask friends, colleagues and customers to sponsor me for "driving a selection of ribs all the way round the island".

Anyone else prepared to offer me 3nm helming their rib, I really want to donate more (I'm up to a 65 donation from me so far based on Ribnet boats previously helmed, or will be helmed on the day), and if possible raise even more money by getting sponsorship.

You could always swim the rest of the way and raise even more

Thanks stingray that is now 8 boats and 24nm. We have just passed the overfalls just west of Saint Catherines point. Who wants to get me another 3nm up the coast?
