Is that a crane on top?

If so, could you not park the RIB on top, drive it into the sea and use the crane to lift the RIB in over the side.

The ideal solution to not dunking your trailer

Funnily enough, we do have a use for one. We live by a river that floods at inconvenient times (and other times too) Could be useful for gettng from the house to the garage to check the RIB's ok

Do you rent it out?
