Was always a dream of mine that when the euromillions inevitably come in, I'd buy a huuuuuuuge gin palace and have one of these in its garage

Not to mention all the stupid laws - is it a boat - is it a plane etc - CAA are a nightmare at the best of times!!!

There was one at Ribex a few years ago.

CAA currently banned them from uk waters unless you get a PFA or BMAA permit.. - we had one try to operate in Weymouth 2 years ago and was very quickly stamped on from above........

Why? wing will keep the rain off and when it gets too rough you just take off brilliant every rib should carry a wing as a safety item
