As to whether or not they were effective... I really don't know. I've only got one video that shows a training exercise. I think the principal behind it was "swoop and scoop".. and just get the casualty into the boat any old-how, and then beach it as fast as possible.
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.
As for pictures... no I don't have many. I do have a years worth of Data CDs filled with high-quality video that you can take pictures from. I'll dig out the more recent ones for you and burn you some copies. Email me with what things you'd like the pictures to show and I'll see what I can do.
