Glad to hear that you are still keeping the RIB, I always feel my shoulders dropping and my stress dissapating as I launch mine its a good way to unwind.
Exactly the reason why I'm keeping it Chris

Struggling to find out if the Icom is shielded, but the beat goes on. Waiting for an email off the company I bought it from.
Someone down the road from here is selling a dry suit but with slight damage to one of the legs. Not sure exactly what kind of damage yet so before I go down, are dry suits easy to repair?

They are, any dive shop should offer the service if you don't do it yourself. all you need is some waterproof glue and some tri laminate, (what a membrane suit is made of) or something else waterproof and flexible, rubber patch etc.

Put a football in the neck, a couple of bottles in the arms and pump it up. Wet it with soapy water, find the hole and the repair it from the inside.

Thanks Neil. To do it myself, where would I get the proper materials?

you can normally buy a repair kit in dive shops, some chandlers (those with divers, and dinghy sailors as significant customers) or from ebay.

Cheers, I'll go and have a gander at the dry suit then.

After me being wrong about the DSC I re read the manual (first time for me) and found out the Icom 71 needs to be kept 90cm away from the compass. ollocxs

Just had a phone call to tell me my handheld will be ok for me to use as long as I don't place it over the area of my chest where the defib is implanted.
Got myself a drysuit and come rain, shine I'm taking the boat out on Sunday! Launching from Knott end (you may have seen wavelength post about the place or read his article on launching over the side.)
Thanks for all the help

Think it might be rain rather than shine, 35mph winds and heavy showers are forecast. Good luck :-)
