Thanks Chris, excellent of you do all this for us and Macmillan, everyone who has seen your tubes on the MacRib loves them.

Nobody can get over the stitching and attention to detail etc.

You lot are awesome

It was so great to meet you two today

Seriously you lot, these two guys are two really nice blokes and great at their job too. They seem to have a box for everything and nothing was too much trouble.

Thank you Daniel and Wayne who both took the day off unpaid and travelled very far to complete this work.

Pics to follow

With such a special job to do, our very own Ribnet wiring dudes from Positive Marine Electronics break out these bad boys

They are Heat Shrink Crimps with hot melt glue inside, only the best for our RIB 4 Macmillan and reassuringly expensive too

Well done lads
