We also had a great time although we were very tired by the end of our fourth day on duty! As you say, the vast majority of our 'customers' were brilliant and responded very positively to all requests/reminders!
It was good to meet up with so many RIBnet and BIBOA friends again, even if it was just for a quick hello at times! Won't write a long (boring?!) list of everyone we met but must make a couple of mentions: Lurcher (& crew) - nice to meet you and see your RIB. It looks even better (if that's possible!) in the 'flesh' than in your photos! Ollie (qcamel), we thoroughly enjoyed your company and stories!
And you should get a medal (or at least a mention in despatches
) for all the zooming around you did! Bruce, Jo and Paul - great company as ever!
