Personally I'd rather keep the RIB on the surface than turn it into a submarine .

Now there's an idea Nasher ... having seen the photo of Matt in his blue drysuit, just think what he could do with one of these "tangerine dreams"

Ha ha did you read the spec. Submarine Escape and Immersion Equipment is a combined whole-body suit and one-man life raft that is designed to allow submariners to escape from a sunken submarine. The suit provides protection against hypothermia and is rapidly replacing the Steinke hood rescue device. The suit allows survivors to escape a disabled submarine at depths down to 600 feet (183 m), at a rate of eight or more men per hour.[1] How are you going to send the suit down to the other 7 men??? If you ascended from 183m you wouldnt need a life raft unless this suit vented you would be 19 times times bigger and you would leave the water like a polaris missile.

Trying to submarine my boat on the way to Lundy

Some bugger closed it on the first day there wasn't green water breaking over the bow every time I tried to get out of Appledore or Watermouth

I hear everyone on Lundy went down with a bad stomach bug that weekend , so the suit may have also been usefull .
I take it you didn't get there then ?

Nope. Coming out of Watermouth I nearly went over backwards and I couldn't get over the bar coming out of Appledore as I had waves trying to break over the bow.

It wasn't til Saturday that the weather would have been OK and the island was closed off by the bug then.
