Oops

Another boat not coming to the Southwest ribsters gathering

By punctured they mean that there was a problem with the hull.

Was it the "big yellow rib" company that do the rib rides down there.

Not many other ribs around that can carry 12 passengers and 2 crew.

Suggestion that there was a collision that holed the boat, and that a plank of wood was seen nearby, must have been some plank!

Derek Hall, from St Ives Lifeboat, said: "It's not actually deflated but the hull, I believe, is damaged underneath. You can see daylight through the hole, it looks like it's fairly badly damaged.

Really liked the following quote!!!

"The boat itself is very unlikely to sink - they're very safe things."

"Most of the people were picked up very quickly by a local fishing boat and one or two of them were taken ashore on the rescue jet ski the lifeboat use from Porthmeor Beach and the rest of them were picked up from the sea by the lifeboat.

See jetskis aren't so bad after all........

Probably hit a submerged treetrunk or similar - it is scary just how much stuff gets washed down rivers and into the sea in a good blow - worth taking extra care after a storm near river mouths.......

Looking at the pictures it looks more like a defect in the laying up of the grp than a collision.
