ciao e benvenuto to RIBnet.

They're some waves for Lake Garda. Are there many RIBs on the lake? When I was there some 20 years ago all I remember where some classic, highly polished motorboats.

Garda can cut up really rough in strong northerlies; a few years ago a father and two sons drowned leaving the mother and others clinging to an upturned hull for hours overnight until rescued

the guy who hired the boat with a driving licence got a suspended sentence

The lake is very dangerous for the people that don't know it because, in a hot day of sun when all the boats are in lake, unespectedly come stong wind with hailstorm...
