Whenever theres a big swell he never gets them in! Theyve sunk before & he'll let them sink again. Been washed up loads before!

Not a new concept though , the RNLI had 4 water jet propelled lifeboats in service way back over a hundred years ago .

Luke - that boat you showed in your original post travelled past my office this afternoon. It was a pretty poor sight. I just happened to be at the window with my phone as it passed us. I suspect its beyond repair, poor guy.

You must be in the A1office or Gate of India? Real shame about the boat, might just be cosmetic? I hope the insurance comes through.
