Oh and in case you're wondering at 1:38 a little bit of poo did come out.

Good driving A frame mounted cam or not .. the amounts of sea:sky , sea:sky lets us know what a bounce that was, least of all looking at the second boat

So now youve dumped in your dry suit ? thats the trouble .. they keep everything out, but also everything in ....

Those are typical conditions for the Bristol Channel - bloody place!!!

Great video - the more I watch stuff like this the more I realise that twin engines are not a good idea unless you have 12 passengers sitting up front to balance them out!!!

Most RIBs seem too stern heavy as it is. Nice to see the driver's console right forward to help with balance - must make for a rough ride though!!!

This was my first Rib and I bought it off Osprey_Viper on here, used to be called Keymar, I renamed it Danny Boy. It was superb and in great nick, I did loads of stuff to it including the replacement of the Johnson 90hp with an E-tec 115hp.

there was a little too much weight in the back due to the aformentioned aux engine and fuel however it was a superb rib that handled anything you could throw at it and without the extra weight it was much less flightyover the waves.

I sold it to a pair of teachers up norf who were into diving. Would like to think its still getting plenty of use in the rough stuff.
