An Epic Fail.

You always need to learn from your experiences. Sometimes you also need to share them.

So, for the benefit of all prospective RIB owners can I suggest you give some serious consideration to allowing your better half to name the boat, especially when you are the one who will have to talk to the coastguard and other VHF users with the name she bestows on you.

In my unfortunate case I have been bestowed with the name "Quack".

I havent had the bottle to issue the call

"Holyhead coastguard, Holyhead coastguard, Holyhead coastguard this is QUACK QUACK QUACK!"

I do hope they don't think i'm taking the mickey too much!

Up to you, but I wouldn't want to fall fowl of the Coastguard......

Yes, you will have to be careful, or you may end up with a large Bill !
