Anyone ever own this RIB,,hope not .

Anybody out there ever own or recognise this rib ,

,,hope not ,,

unless it was perhaps stolen from you a while back ,
just one of a number of boats on display this weekend seized by police involving drug offences ect ,eventually to be disposed of in the near future ,,its thought one of the boats was used in smuggling operations on the welsh coast ,,the fast fisher was also seized and up for disposal ,the A flag the police divers placed on the fast fisher was just for a joke ,,made them look a bit more glam than the usual grotting about in 5 foot deep muddy canal water ,

So it just goes to show, if you need a Rib that can take you at speed through the rough stuff with 100KGs of Cocaine on board then Osprey is the way to go
