Hello from Woz

I'm a diver from Nottm and we run a RIB (unnecessary Faff), 2 inflatables (Brian and Naughty Boy).

Faff's an old but reliable 5m Northcraft, retubed a couple of years ago with a 3 cyl Mariner 75 2 stroke nailed to the back.
Brian's an old but well loved 5m Humber inflatable with an ex-RNLI Mariner 40hp engine on it. Goes like stink with no-one in it but the hull is getting tired and we're looking for a replacement boat.
Naughty Boy is similar to Brian but a bit smaller. And grey.

All boats are stored in our boat shed and dragged out for dive trips when needed. As with most dive RIBs, they're either ignored in the shed or towed to the coast, loaded with 6 divers and heavy kit and run flat out to push them along, then sit for an hour ticking over then get battered with dive kit. It's a tough life being a dive boat!
