sitting or standing depending on the weather conditions or if i am eating or having a nice cup of rosey lee.

if rough then i would expect everone stands (if boat allows) to take the shock thru the knees but if lazy and smooth then sitting is nice.

standing, bum on backrest, braced on either grab rail or sterrinng whell if helming, in moderate see at speed hold bottom of throttle and rest on throttle mounting, if rougher hold throttle on top. If you hold throttle on top, it sort of works that if you are going up fast at 45 degrees, you tend to automatically pull back on the throttle which is a good thing

At a speed and stance which ensures the Pimms is always perfect.

I stand if it gets rough and if Iím in a hurry I lean forwards, that way I get there just that little bit earlier

If it gets very rough, I stand and face backwards because what you canít see canít hurt Des

Hi Tim, every time I try to spend £24k on a RIB my bank manager tells me it's not wise and that the business isn't turning over enough yet! Any time now I will ignore him and buy one anyway!

Sitting whenever possible. I must not be going out in rough enough conditions. When it does get rough I find I'm standing half the time though.
