you could always market the special starting tool used on RIB 1.

Looking at the pictures I think that collars might have been a good idea for RIB 1

yeah go on then! I might be back on the North Sea but Jasper could do it with our big RIB. It might be a good idea to make a ribnet cruise out of it.

As long as Phil Davies doesn't express an interest you might get a good turn out

Yeah lots of people here said that too - the 90 roof was in really good nick and even had a sunroof fitted

Had a quick look at the site and thought..... "Mad Feckas"... .. just trying to figure what it's about though ? Did I miss a link? Also... whilst you're trying to develop the tracked LR, you might want to call Cuthbertson, who according to some info on the web are still trading...and find out why they didnít do too well with their tracked conversions.. Good luck to you anyway I'm always jealous of people who "do" it instead of "talking about" it
