Punctured SIB video

I was wondering if you could still motor with a deflated tube. Well in my youtube journeys I came across a video and it doesn't look good...

Something odd there - looks like only one side was inflated - either a large gash or the internal baffles were blown. And they still made it home. I thought they did well for being 4 up? Sit on the good tubes and hold up the blown tube - well done!

I assumed it was a 2 chamber boat with the one baffle in the bow centre. My small old Avon is like this as was an early Zodiac we had. Gives far less security than the slightly larger sibs with bow compartment plus two tubes.

We bought a rib back from diving on the James Egon Layne in Whitsand Bay to Plymouth one with one side deflated. Took a long time but was OK. 6M rib with 6 divers on board.


Osprey rib 5.6m with a 90 on the back.

They might have felt a bit safer with a life jacket or two

Love the speed that they decided to bring their crippled sib back at, no half throttle for them

Get it on the plane and it will be higher out of the water and less likely to swamp it and the way it was going down I would want to be getting to shore as soon as poss!

Lucky it had an air keel, probably the only thing that was keeping them afloat.

Nice hat

Yes, and the fact that lifting the engine near shore isn't high on their list of priorities. The helm is probably ex-Russian special forces. Then again... He does like his pies!
