Ireland.

Is it off Lambay Island on the East Coast ? Last year they rescued a group of divers in a sinking rib here. It looked like the crowd off a double decker bus and all their kit. I thought they were going for a world record on how many divers in a rib category.

RIBase
Scotty
It would be very interesting to find out a bit more about this.
I count 12 on board?
Tubes look fine. Is the hull holed?
How did it happen? More. More More.

NO, It wasnt, Gavin and I were out that day and heard the lifeboat been dispached, We were 8 miles away and no much fuel at the time, so we couldnt assist.

The sea was quite choppy that day and 14 in total had gone diving in a 6.1m Redbay It swamped as they approched the dive site, as you would expect, with 14 divers and kit, and then the engine got wet! a Yacht pulled then off the cliff face of the island, and then the helicopter lifter a 14 year old boy who was cold and wet off the rib. The lifeboat did the rest....

Not the sharpest tool's in the shed, I think.

No one hurt and Iwould say a you boy with a great memory of been winched and flying in a SAR chopper.....
