Of course you could not do this with a hard boat

Pete Kidd over in Malaysia is doing a hard boat for the US and other military for coming out of a plane and I think it's a quite a bit bigger than the RIB - must remember to get some more details from him next time he's over ............

John,

Cool pictures. Is that the 11 meter Naval warfare RHIB with a diesel inboard? Had no idea that they would get airdropped. It looks like and FC 470 in the foreground, is that correct. Do you spend a fair amount of time in these craft?

Yes, thatís the 11-meter RHIB. There is only a C-130 and some RHIBs in the photos, no FC 470. I havenít gone to SEAL training yet, so I havenít been in them. I am really looking forward to it though!

This is the one I was wondering about, whether it was a FC470 CCRC or an 11m RHIB. BTW, good luck with the seal training. Whereabouts in Minnesota are you?
