Ahhh... you're the guys I got the drysuits from.

Very nice rib that's very well handled from what I've seen of you guys.

We are based at Lepe beach, at the entrance of the Beaulieu River in the Western Solent.

Feel free to pop along, although we have finished for the season, will be there from March onwards next year.

Nos4r2 - Ravenspring drysuits? if so i remember them, hope yours is keeping up well!

Matt,

I first met you guys at last years Calshot boat jumble. Hope you managed to flog everything.

I've also had the pleasure of meeting one of your crews during the summer in Yarmouth, they were on the really big RIB, the senior guy had red hair if I remember correct. Your guys were all eating fish and chips whilst sat on the boat. I waited for you to leave so I could come alongside. Most impressed with your boat, the new drysuits and very impressed with the pleasant attitude of everyone and especially the boat handling skills as you left the harbour.

Must admit I've never seen boat number two around the Solent but I'll keep an eye out for it now.

Keep up the good work.

Nick.

Biggles,

Red haired chap? i am affraid we dont have one. you will find the coxswain from yarmouth harbour was myself (how do i know) coz i am the only coxswain who goes into Yarmouth and the only one who buys chips when im there, but i appreciate the comment!!!!

as for not seeing the second boat, it is new and seems to hide in coves and bays training untill needed.

If anyone ever sees venturer rescue one out by all means pop alongside, 90% of the time i am on board.

Drysuits, if any one wants to buy one, we are now selling our Typhoons for £125 each. reason for sale is we have a new grant to specificaly get new drysuits.

Matt

Thanks for that, its always nice to see people make nice comments like that.

as far as are water jets easy to drive...if you know what your doing with them then yes they are, but they get a bit of getting use to, i remember when i first took the helm i think i did about 6 turns in my own space before i got on a straight line!!!

Great shots and sounds like great use of teenage energy and time !!!

Is there a way to encourage more teenagers to be involved in your organisation?

More details would be great!
