and if the boat is too low a profile you get the problem that the Tyne has so they have fitted righting bags to the topsides as they cannot be guaranteed to self right without them!

Which makes it more likely to topple in the first place and so it goes on!!!! I know - maybe a floating ball - that way it will NEVER capsize - or will all the time.........

Not that simple-C of G not the only thing to consider - also centre of buoyancy. Greater minds than mine have sorted this one out and the record of bad weather service in these boats says it all. When you get to be an old git like me its your kids and their partners who are crew on the boats-and the faith mine have in their different boats at two different stations is absolute!

Firstly I did NOT say it would be unsafe - just wobble around a lot which it seems it does!!!

Secondly YES it can capsize as can ANY other boat!!!

Our Dive club rescued one of those just out of Dunbar 2 years ago.
They`d run over a pot line and fouled the screws.
"Orange rib are you divers?". "What the F**k do you think we are carrying all these cylinders for".
They had the gall to say they would give us a cut rate rescue next time we got into trouble. Should have put in a salvage claim on them. "JOKE".

All that hassle resizing photos etc etc etc - yes I know Irfan view or Acdsee will prob do it but just can't be arsed yet - as soon as my boat gets here I will probably be in a better frame of mind!!!!
