Jet Rib needed for hire. Scottish Highlands

I'm looking for a jet rib to hire for 4 days between now and August.
If you're based in Scotland and would be interested in chartering your 5m + jet rib. Boat will be used for training.

Please Pm me here if you are a Scottish based jet rib owner or know someone who is.

Thanks
Al.

Very helpful, I'll bear that in mind.


In the meantime does anyone know of a 5+ meter jet boat for hire in Scotland?

Gotcha, sorry, I have a very literal frame of mind

Do you think being a Greenpeace member should put prospective charter providers off? It's not like he's planning to board ships with it - mind you, oatmeal is a bugger to get off tubes once it's wet.

ha, well you can hardy imagine them taking a nice gentle trip to see the beaches with a bit of water sking with the family, they are after all a serious organisation with some well skilled members so you can imagine it will be well handled but it would make me think twice even if I supported them. There is a difference between charitably donating 2 a month and risking damaging you pride and joy by lending it to a group of peaple that regularly test the limits of such craft, even if it is insured (as it still usually ends up costing the owner)

You have to chill out a bit Al and realise that thread hijacking is part of the game on this forum. Here's a video of a 5m jet boat in Scotland:
