Hey Ollyit, are you a member of ECA? I've got an application form and quite fancy joining but would like to find a bit more out about the place first.

Tell me where there's a helicopter in a field!!! I'm looking for an Allison T63 turbine, or perhaps an Isotov GTD-350.

When will farmers ever learn - no matter how many Land Rovers you plant in a field(or RIBS) they will never grow!!!

The 2 I have seen have been almost completely stripped - Allison are now owned by Rolls Royce(aero) by the way.

Look on ebay - they come up from time to time - especially out of hours ones if not wanted for air use.

Like somebody mentioned, contact the DVLA, Information from Records department with a letter of explanation to track down the owner of the car. They charge for this service.

or ask a friend who has access to the DVLA records, like a car insurance broker, or a policeman.....

or track it down from the boat license plates

or better, ask the marina who's it is.

I'd actually be surprised if the boat was for sale. It's obviously been in someone's garden for a few years judging by the baramble growth on the rude and the mank on the Tubes. Now it's on a trailer in a Marina having been hacked out of a jungle. I think it changed hands just before it got to the Marina.

However it is odds on that the marina will be billing for it being there so they would now the owner!

Andre ... are you up for a fight!!!

Out at sea miles from land diving with my only hope of survival a RIB to pick me up and get me home ... I will be damn sure its looked after. I think you may find us divers are not all arseholes when it comes to our RIBs, and in most cases we have a better understanding of the sea and good boat handling skills ... your & bait was taken my friend!

I suspect whoever owns this kit treats all his toys in this way .. love to see his car.

Rogue I think you will find that these 'rudes are so envrionmentally friendly (especially the E-TECS) that they form their own ecosystem!
