As for what we use now;

1x 6.40m Sillinger RIB (150hp, absolutely LOADED with kit)
1x Yamaha Waverunner with sled
1x 5m Zodiac (65hp) RIB (tiller) (bloody hard work)
1x 5m Zodiac Mk II (40hp) RIB (tiller)
1x Zodiac MK II (40hp) SIB (tiller)
3x Zodiac MK II GR (30hp) SIB (tiller)
1x Zodiac MK II Futura (30hp)

1x Peugeot J5 - fully kitted out inside
1x LandRover 110 Station Wagon

We are debating whether to replace the current WaveRunner with another, or whether to get a second. It's got 400 hours on the engine, so it's a matter of balancing on-going maintenance costs, trade in value, and whether we do any events that require two RWCs.

That is alot of kit any chance of putting the video clip on here
