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

Was it not advertising tents for RIBs then?

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.
