I was thinking that the reaction to the total lack of life jackets in this film was a bit - let's just say zealous- then the KIDS get in without them!! Mine don't get on the pontoon without theirs, let alone the boat...... Not good....

love it! I'd hope it is fresh water though. As it's always the 2nd hand owner who suffers.

Totally agree re kids. Adults can make up their own mind.

Brilliant, just watched the video and was about to post about life jackets, then scrolled down and there it was in all its glory, already done. Still this post still counts, right?

PS, I like the rib too. If at any point you feel you need one to be used on the North Kent coast as much as possible to try and drum up trade, i'd be happy to help

No, he probably just missed a legitiamite question amongst all the sanctimonious preaching from people complaining he didn't drown!

Dear people
Maybe it is difficult to believe but in The Netherlands life jackets are not required by law. Strangly enough you only have to have them on board. Killcords are required ofcourse and we always wear them. For the film we decided not to wear lifejackets because we wanted a more lifestyle feeling. Just look at promo films on other companies which selll superyacht tenders and you will see the same.

The topspeed of this X8.5 is 64knots. This client wanted a easy to drive tender, so we built it as he wanted. We can also make it go faster but then you need a different setup and an expert driver etc.. We build our RIB exactly to the customers needs.
So please don't think that the dutch are irresponsible.

By the way, yes it was fresh water and my Volvo is still good!

I love the Bananashark Cookee.
