Unusual extreme SIB handling

I'd not seen this before... not keen on killcords it seems.

I've seen RIBs playing up and down the rapids known as the "Falls of Lora" under the Connel Bridge, just north of Oban. They're not quite as spectacular as this. Doing it without a kill cord is pretty stupid.

The falls of Lora came to mind to me as well Mike. I've looked down off the bridge a few times over the years but always on the way further north with the boat still packed in the car so not had the SIB in the loch there.

I've not seen it this good (bad?) but it does get exciting below the bridge...

Looks like a typical day off St Catherine's point if you miss slack water
