Jono, glad to hear you got back safely.

We and Humper (in the 7 metre osprey) went off for a play and then had a picnic at Llanwyn. We then headed to the Castle and left there around 4.30. You wouldn't believe how calm the sea was at that time of the day. We arrived back at Menai around 5.30 and had a fantastic day.

We will post some pics later.

Good read, flipping/capsizing a rib has always been in the back of my mind having a smaller rib than most... is there a special knot or arrangement of ropes that can be rigged to right a 4metre rib? if so do you think you describe it please?

pleased everyone was okay anyway - hope the motors not to costly

Picture of me and Andy righting the rib.

The bridle was fitted from the grabline at the front of the boat to the grab line at the back. It would of been more ideal fitted to a more secure point but it worked with a little help from Cracker.

Jono - You have my sympathies on this one as i did something simular last year, supprising how fast a few small things can lead you into a whole world of shit isn't it, and luckily you had company with you to help right the boat after, had she washed up somewhere more damage may have occoured.

Hi Jono

We had a interesting day with you on sat,I know if the boot was on the other foot, you would be the first to help us out. so it was good to be able to help you out. Very calm and professional recovery Jono .A1

Learn't loads hopfully never to be used again!!!

Hope you and Andy have warmed up now and Flipper is soon back into the thick of it.

Good to meet DJ Steve for the first time and have a fun afternoon with you on the straits in the afternoon, hope to be ribbing with you again soon.

And good to meet you to Dave from Anglesey especially as you were there just when we needed a hand to load the boat, THANKS

Glad to hear the Osprey's had a good afternoon afer we left you and hope to see every one again soon.

Will try and put pics on some time, never done it before so will probably be a disaster!!
