Is it Hot Lemon ? I did hear a call for a 10M Rib off St Albans Head with the steering packed up, I was too far away to offer assistance. I think they may have been the incident.

Also this :

BBC News - Family rescued from Studland nudist beach as boat sinks

While I am sure not the same incident ( but you can never tell with the press !) - suggests to me there may have been something floating out there that has punched holes in the boats ?

That was hot lemon v, record holder of the round Britain under 30ft. This boat is owned by mike deakin, after he set the channel crossing to cherbourg record.
He is a member of biboa and had to take his "mini play rib" ( 8.5m scorpion 315 diesel) to Weymouth for the biboa annual "Weymouth wander" Cruise.

On the way back from the record the boat started to lag and the engines vibrated, He ignored this and carried on, suddenly the engines started to vibrate alot and he stopped to look in the engine bay. What he saw was the whole of the engine bay underwater and in his own words. "I Thought we were going to Sink " he was able to go at 3knots for a few minutes but by then he had to call the lifeboat 15 miles off st albans. The back of the boat was submerged in water.
Later on i gather was that a seal had broken and water had poured in in via there, With all his 3 bilge pumps working it still wasn't enough to bail the water out.

The boat website is :http://www.hotlemon.com/

She is up for sale,http://www.hotlemon.com/photo_galler...me=Boat%20Spec

Videos, http://www.youtube.com/user/marclyne#p/u/16/0wnzCEEsh9U

And his "mini rib",



Rick,
