FIB

They are actually called FIB (Flying Inflatable Boat) as i know it`s only Lomac that builds them, se the link below.

And i also think you need some kind of pilot licens to fly them.

Regards

Petrov

Andy, I don't think the standard Suzi issue prop will be sufficient either! Maybe call the rib 'Red Bull'

Dear Ian,

I hope you've booked something a bit more airworthy for the Jersey trip i.e. BA business class. I dont do Easyjet ever since I found out it was run by a Greek.

Yours Faithfully

David

What Jersey trip? We do not have any cheap airlines that fly over here. Only BA and a few other rip-off airlines.

Manning may be going to Jersey but I'm off to Guernsey. No cheap flights to there either! I may get dates mixed up but at least I know where I'm going!
