Big thanks for all the support and info guys, that all made for some fantastic and very interesting infomation, I definataly want one of them white cone kites, thats just the style I was thinking of, because you could just fix the end of the line to one of those cheap 3/4 ton 12v winches, and power in or out with ease, detatch kite pack away sorted, infact as mentioned in that article there are other uses of gaining great height at sea, I know i've been in situations before now where i've lost radio signal from being at 2 meter from sea level, fortunaly only performing a radio check, however im thinking of getting a bigger aerial.
I must say I would have replied sooner to the great responce, but i've been doing a bit of flying myself today, turns out the L200 pictured reversing my rib back in her bay, is actually not very good at flying at all, infact after hitting black ice this morning at about 45 ish mph and sliding sideways then dramaticaly regaining traction whilst faceing head on with the hedge at 40?mph, I hit the hedge heavy on the front passengers side on the other side of the road, then became airborn for what seamed like 5 sec previosly to slaming down full pass side roof, ending up hanging from the seat belt as she came to rest on the near side, fortunatly I was alone and there where no injuries, so thank you again guys for those threads they really perked me up, plus I love the banter on here, there's nowt like a good laugh lad, whether your an inshore or offshore rubber boater,
Damn I wish I had my video camera this morning i'd definataly have that £250 of YBF.
Does anyone want parts for an L200,
I'll post some pics soon.
A lot of people ask me if I were shipwrecked, And could only have one book, What would it be? I always say "How to build a boat"
