RIBase
That's not quite what I meant. It's not great, but it's not as risky. I mean drivers who park themselves directly behind another boat on a bumpy day, to avail of the calmer water in the wake. So there they are - following a boat that's having it bumpy, they're about three seconds behind it, someone falls off the lead boat, the following craft tries to steer away....

It's a complete no-no on dusk and night passages

It passes my mind, that if someone went in during one of these mass 'ride outs', they'd do well not to get minced.

Good advice Whisper,
As as RIB cruise novice, it sounds eminently sensible.
I'd add one more thing - don't push yourself / boat to keep up, helm within your boat's - and your capabilities, don't feel pressured.
