As far as Jersey Ribsters go I see most of them wearing lifejackets! I do and so does any one who comes on my RIB! Saftey 1st!

And Hightower that pic is in GUERNSEY!!!!!

Glad to see her safe and sound in the Channel Islands, hope to see her soon.

Tony, do you know who skippered the RIB over to Guernsey?

Nick

I have no idea who skippered the rib over..
As for life jackets, all my family and any guests that come out on my boat wear life jackets or they stay watching from the harbour!!!

I do hope the new owner gets as much pleasure and satisfaction out of her as Richard did.

I guess this ends this thread as we move on to MK2

Needs rougher water I reckon!!!

What are you doing about the name? It is very bad luck to change the name of a boat so you may have to get a new name for your boat if they register theirs!!!
