Dan,

Sure glad that you and Brittany are OK. It's amazing how quickly things can happen in fast water. I'm glad that you posted about the incident, becuase it can help the rest of us forsee potential hazards that we kight might not have thought much of before. That lifejacket is impressive!

Bilge Rat,

Love those pics of the nose of your searider Now that's a real inflatable! Looks like it's been through a couple of wars and numerous clandestine missions, and yet it yearns for more of the same. If it could talk it would be saying "Yeah - bring it on!". None of this foo-foo bluewater Mediteranean stuff with custom pinstripes to match the owner's polo shirt and sandals. Grey hypalon with patches is where it's at.

Hey...I'll be asking you...........

.............to step outside if you continue with talk like that (how tall are you) Let me tell you PT, my pinstripe Med style Luxury RIB will lead (not follow) anything and everything wherever they may wish to go and in whatever conditions the Almighty may wish to put our way. It's not the boat that gives up, it's the man. Furthermore, just because a boat is not scared, battered and bruised, does not necessarily mean it is any less a craft, it possibly means the owner is a caring, cautious, well practiced and experienced skipper.

So, if you're 5'4", weigh around 80 kilos and bench press no more than 60 kilos - come one, bring it on and step outside

.........kids like to be involved, this sort of approach has worked with my daughter. If they think they have a bit of knowledge and are allowed to be involved in things, they enjoy it a lot more - just like us really.

Come on MeMe, PT has a point it is all about perception, if your boat was a fighter it gives the impression of being able to give a really mean Chinese burn or perhaps it could scratch your eyes out , but a Sea Rider would rip your head off then shag you while drinking a pint of very strong beer.

Des your terminology is scary, though i'd expect no less from a mighty Pac driver

Meme i think what Tuber was trying to say is that those med type fancy boats with pin stripes and picnic tables look great on your med holiday catologue but are very little use to man or beast in a rescue situation, though had i been hanging onto that rope i'd have been just as pleased to have seen you coming as anyone else, Seariders were designed and built primarily as rescue and support boats and fulfill the role very well indeed, though it does raise a debate about whether or not one wants a roughty toughty rescue boat or a nice comfy boat suitable for family outings.

It was a big tide running on Sunday so ideally not a good day to be in the water.

These things do happen and its a credit to everybody on the forum here that there were friends about when you needed them

It is a good idea to go boating in company and i am sure that the trips that we organise on here do promote safer boating for us all.

Well done guys.

LOL, not sure if I qualify, but nonetheless, if you're willing to help out with airfare across the pond, AND are willing to take me for a daytrip in your cruiser... you're welcome to beat me senseless.

Just let me know what colour polo shirt and sandals to bring

I know things can be made solid and fashionable, though it is often not the case. But to reiterate, nothing is as beautiful as grey hypalon with stains, patches and strands of fabric protruding from the seam edges.
