Bareboat Rib Charter

Can anyone suggest a company or quote a price for Bareboat Rib charter (as a private client) for either a day or half a day.

As daft as it sounds, I've been asked to plot the location of the Varvassi and Goose rocks etc around the Needles onto a laptop nav system which should ultimately take half a day or so...just to iron out (apparently) a datum error...

Unless of course anyone can lend me a rib in return for doing a days work for them in exchange (I'll even cover the cost of the fuel)...!

PM's please

Cheers All

Gordon...

Gordon, insurance for bareboat can be a problem. You might be better chartering someone like Jimbo with his Pacific 22 mid week, which should be competitive and leave you free to carry out the survey whilst he drives the rib. Nice stable platform and has 12 and 24v on board for power too.

There is a photo on the net of a member from RNLI standing on Goose Rock at very low water, check out the Lymington or Yarmouth RNLI pages.

How accurately do you want to survey the wreck? like swim around it? There is also a video (You tube ?) of a round the island yacht race showing a posh yacht striking the Varvassi and coming to a dead stop rather quickly

What a good idea

Gordon, give me a bell and I'm sure I can sort something out for you - skill swap/charter related.

Cheers,

Jimbo

Jimbo - will do (probably after Easter as I'm away from today now)...

..and I have seen the video of the yacht hitting hte wreck, followed by another one right up it's chuff..!

I think that's why this plot is wanted...!

Cheers all,
