Seedy home made videos !!!

We’re of to Scotland for the week, I thought it would a good chance to take some pics and video of the Rib in action.
My idea is to slowly tow the canoe out to the middle of lock, get in it and let Vince drive and I’ll take some pictures. Has anyone done anything similar?

How much wake do you think it will make at speeds up to 60 mph?

Will I get tipped out? How close is to close? Do I trust Vince to behave?

Please tell me somebody else will be filming both craft from a safer platform so we can all see you get capsized by the wake on youtube.

How about seeing how fast you can get towed in the canoe. It could be RIBNETs own version of 'Top Gear'. Maybe we could call it 'Wet Gear'
