I would be very interested in where you intend to code this boat! Whilst it looks impressive, there appears to be little room for all the safety equipment you will need ...

Somewhere with Sun, Sea and Sense, I should think.

You showed my RIB much more etiquette that the crew of the next RIB that rafted up along side. Twas a scruffy looking Humber, the crew was making a pigs ear of the rafting and decided to walk over my seats to get from one side to the other . I later found a big blob of grease on my engine cowling that I can only assume they left for me from one of their mooring ropes or whatever. These people obviously treat other peoples RIBs like their own.

Went on Saturday afternoon seemed quieter than other years and smaller.
Liked the Renegade ribs designed by Adam Younger other than that nothing took my eye .

Nice to meet up with people though Bogib , Andre and lots of others.

Perhaps later in the year would be better or back on the English side of the Solent to increase numbers through the door.

Nice to see the Independent Lifeboats making a show of it and raising there profiles.

Did anyone get the name of the company that was taking photographs just to the East of Cowes entrance?
