Alternative SIB cruises ?

I have been thinking of SIB/ small RIB (4m or less) cruises that could be fun with a few boats together. Mainly as I no longer have a bigger RIB which can do the Jolly to the Folly at a cruise, or the Nacho Run etc

So Iím thinking if people have a 2.8 SIB or 5-10hp engine boat where could a cruise (maybe it should be a SIB buzz due to the noise of smaller 2 strokes?) could go ?

Iím thinking things like Camber to Port Solent (allowing the bigger SIBS to nip out of the harbour and go fast ), or Poole (Baiter) to Wareham Ė again allowing some fast fun for the bigger SIBS (although if times the lack of speed limit in the harbour would allow some speed trials). Youíll note there is a Pub at the half way point which I do feel is vital.

Just an idea at the moment and while I am sure there would be bigger local RIBs along (water allowing!) Iím wondering if this would be of interest?

I thought the Thames SIB idea was a great idea and I was gutted I ended up having to do other stuff.
