Hi from sunny Kent

Hi all,

Just popped in to say Hi,

I did my RYA Power Boat 2 and subsequently my Safety Boat qualification a few years ago but have not done much since. I'm now looking to change all that and am planning on buying a RIB over the winter.

I live in Minster just outside Sheerness so am literally surrounded by the sea.

Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hi Barry,

We are only a 15 minute blast from you, if that, down in Herne Bay.

We often go out with 2 to 3 ribs and sometimes more, so your more than welcome to tag along at any point we are out, safety in numbers and all that. Only a few weeks ago we did around the island and out to the forts, across to Margate and back home. It was a long day but great fun.

There are normally 2 x Zodiac Pro 420's and a couple of 5m + ribs.

Of course the sea's can slow us down considerably on the 4m ribs, but its still great fun.

Weather and sea is fantastic this week, but guess what, i'm working. Off out Friday though.
