Busy day

Due to the demand (!), we had to run two RIB's all day. We teamed up with the other 9m Parker in Poole and whilst it does not offer quite the same capacity of ours, it provides a safe and secure ride. All the customers loved it too, just under 100 during the day

Nice photos Steve, thanks for sharing. Nice to see Seahawk V being put to good use. Dave did well to have the rib coded.

I was on the beach at Sandbanks with my family watching you run back into Poole Harbour there looked like some seriously insane jet skiers around yesterday afternoon. Glad to see a business doing really well. Bet you're busy for the Airshow ?

She brings back good memories. For those who don't know we drove that particular rib and she was brand new all the way from Gdynia to Southampton by sea via the Kiel canal and the Isle of Helgoland and across the North sea from Hel Helden to Felixstowe , Ramsgate, Littlehampton and our final destination Southampton. This was in April 2008
