Gunwharf, that will be "Onboard Rascal" a Ribeye 785s and Yam 250. A very nice combination.

These guys used to do the odd charter. Not sure if they still do, but they're just across the harbour. I'm not aware of any Cobras based in GW that are coded at the mo.

Hi Peter,

My name is Jonathan. My company donated a RIB experience prize to Faith in Football's Business Enterprise Challenge competition last year which your daughter participated in.

Please give me a call on 07834 211888 when you have a moment so that we can discuss yesterday's RIB trip.

Many thanks,


Jonathan London

I run commercially from Gunwharf so have a particular interest, and perhaps even a little more 'direct local knowledge' as a result. Firstly, Nobody currently operates a Cobra out of Gunwharf, infact I'm the only operator of coded RIBs there.

Ribshare are local working colleagues, who I'm informed "did" collect a party of school-children from Gunwharf yesterday, but it wasn't a charter !

I'm also informed it was a totally free trip to Cowes offered to a local school made via a church group, and donated by Ribshare. The proprietor of Ribshare himself was helming the Cobra in question and he's worked alongside me and several other local commercial operators who are also regular contributors, many times over the last couple of years. During that time he's displayed extremely safe operating methods and in my experience, always exercised consistent sound judgement in respect of all operational safety matters.

It's commendable that he offers an opportunity to get out on the water, to local children, with the best of intentions, and without any gain for himself. For that he doesn't deserve to be pilloried by the self appointed 'Ribnet safety police' or become a further victim of implied suggestions of running an unsafe operation and perhaps his interpretation of events would evidence that !
