The other problem with our "little" RIB was spreading it around the inside of the tube so we put the stuff in, aired it up, and went out and used (abused) the heck out of it on a somewhat rough day. Sometimes you just have to go out and mess around.

For pictures of the job that generated the bite, go to Los Angeles Times - California, national and world news -, do a search for "blue whale" and look at the pictures of Sept 20 and 21, 2007. There are also pictures on our website.
