To be honest sad really if I'm to be honest cos I know she is probably in for a hard life now. Sentimental Bugger really. Had a lot of really good times with that rib, had an awful lot of publicity, if I could have afforded to keep her and have the other rib on order as the work boat then I would have.

Never mind, hope the rib serves him well. She's a tough old beast, not really built for speed which is why I am surprised to see her racing really.

Nauti Buoy on TV

Well Nauti Buoy is now famous in the Channel Islands, She has just been on local TV, along with other ribs such as Hot Lemon, I may try to record the repeat later on. Some nice footage though! She looks even quicker on TV
