A few RIBneters met up (at last some might say) in Wooton Creek today to celebrate the passing of PB L2 by Scurvy Crew (now to be known as "Mr Scurvey Crew"
and Froglover (whose driving ability I will never doubt again after watching the car ferry have five attempts at docking).
Here we have the "good ship" Zebedee arriving in style under the command of "The Missuss
. Never have I seen such a well-honed crew leap into action in preperation for coming along side
with one word, nay, bark of command "NOWWWW"
. They appeared to be in fear of their lives although we did think that we heard the crack of The Cat several times drifting on the afternoon breeze as they were coming up the channel
We knew that the arrival was important as they were escorted in by a jet black stealthy RIB powered by a not so stealthy Johnson o/b. The crew of said vessel were resplendent in their dayglo orange outfits which rather put paid to the stealth bit.
Tea was taken in the Royal Victoria Yacht Club after being charged £4 each boat
for a short stay on their pontoon
More pictures, I regret to say, may well follow.
