Good idea - well nearly!

Whilst out running trips today, we passed this inflatable mobile advertising, being towed through Poole Harbour, presumeably to be taken along the beaches.
I thought to myself, what a good idea. But then on the return trip, came across this ....

Stupid me, we dont have any wind in the UK do we

Steve , thank you for posting this. The company approached two of us about a year ago with this idea from America and they had sole rights to UK market. We looked at it and could see it might work in a river event or a closed harbour but had real doubts about the project. Our concerns were windy conditions and waves. I was aware that they went away to review it and obviously asked Solent Ribs to take on the UK role.
