Good to hear, and hopefully it will continue that way. I dont think any genuine boater will begrudge being stoped and questioned.

I personally have trailered 3 different ribs and a large sport fisher through the ferry terminal over the last couple of years (not to mention a nearly new mini digger, a Bobcat, umpteen trailer loads of building materials etc..) and unfortunately have not been stopped once. Plenty of times without the trailers but never stopped whilst towing.

Its a shame as rather than stopping Mr and Mrs Smith, retired postmasters, leaving to spend two weeks at their holiday home in the Dordogne they should make a point to stop more of the unusual vehicles heading out of the country, especially ones towing 'expensive' looking items like boats plant etc..

Anyway, i shall keep an eye out around the usual haunts over this never know.

Stolen RIB picture

Some photos of one of our RIBs are now displayed on the stolen rib part of the forum. The only difference is the one that was stolen had a Fusion stereo and iPod dock and a Verado outboard. Other than that totally identical. Thanks for keeping your eyes pealed, although I suspect it maybe on its way abroad!

I don't believe in coincidences like that either...
