Hi Paul,
As per alll the halmatics boats I have worked on, it was a standard Avon tubes fitted by Halmatics.
I admit they could be newer but they are in great nick.
On a different note
I will put in a good word to the lads at RMpoole and Faslane that they should reconsider the type of craft they are using. It looks like RIBCRAFT from yoevil is the way ahead.
Oh a quick note, a force 5 is different to a sea state 5. Your talking about wind, Im talking about sea state. A force 4/5 would be great for ringo's down here it would be that calm.
A sea state 5 is cheeky. Thanks for your comments though.

Hmm just a bit, though in fairness I missed it as well on the first read.

"Sea state 5: Rough. Wave height 2.5 to 4 metres"

That's a bit choppy

Christ, that was quick! You must have only done some girly damage and pulled the bolt ropes out the runners.

By the way you need bigger engines on that thing.

Would love a couple of nice shinny new ETECs but money money money. The job was not to bad. I wish it was a few minutes work but it wasnt.

Sorry, I do apologise; I read it as a wind of F4/5 as well. Waves that big would detube my paunch so no surprise that you were having a hard time of it.
