Sorry to hear about your awful experience Steve. Give us a shout if you still want to go out and don't mind a splashy spin.

What a pity the weekend was ruined as you were really looking forward to it.

Not at all just pointing out to some the big advantage of a diesel rib against a petrol one specially to those who have cruising in mind. As you and many others know I have done many trips to Cowes and round the IOW (Seahawk 1 & 2) but if I had a petrol rib then my ribbing hours would have been much less

so for much much less one can go much much further

PS: on second thoughts didn't you mean "Ribbing it in"

Phew I was beginning to worry for a minute cos you haven't really been naming names.

I would be interested in knowing what safety gear you were provided with?
