Congratulations on your presence of mind to think of taking photos for us! Are you going to sell the story to RIB International?

Glad you're still around to tell the tale!

John

PS Is the boat under warranty still?

Quite some story!

Great to hear all are safe and well - it makes us all think though - about travelling in company.

Reminds me why i donate to the RNLI when i can - what a superb organisation they are!

Wow Charles!

I've had a few teething troubles with my new Humber but nothing like that. Surely there must have been a tube problem? If you can't trust a 9.5 Scorpion in a Force 6, then what hope is there for us? I'd be interested to know what the post mortum reveals!. How 'new' was it..... and will you ever trust it again?

Glad you were all OK though.... and thanks for the photos!

I'd like to say that I am glad you are OK also. Pictures are exceptional

I imagine Scorpion would pay big money for the negatives

I hope you do turn this experience into an article for Rib International, it would serve as a good warning for those of us who think Ribs are indistructable.

I hope your Wife and friend are getting over the scare

Best regards
Britt and Stuart
