So if the Jackeens throw a BBQ we could have power boat racing around Port Solenti Cookie and Kitten have one too, but that one looks fast so might have to 2 classes.

Dont expect anything other than bath tub performance out of these things you would not be able to use them on any kind of open water.

Product update - ours has just failed.

After just a few uses its stopped working

not worth a drive back to the boat show to take it back though.

Never mind...

Oh dear... looks like you've made a "donation" rather than a purchase!

You can get these from the RNLI's online shop here: http://www.rnlishop.org.uk/shop/webs...oupCode=GIFLIF

- so that the RNLI get all the benefit of the deal, not just 75p from daves-trade-store.

I reckon the Severn Class looks like fun!
