Jono, surely that's got to be the rolled RIB/Land Rover incident that the Holyhead Coastguard told me and you about at the Open Day this summer? Both were written off if I remember correctly!

I have heard those humbers areent good in the wet!

easily done I am afraid. I can't see why the landrover was a write off and the Hull looks fairly intact to me.

Please note, too, that in addition to 4WD this particular model features a four wheel steer configuration, similar in concept to the JCB 4CX backhoe loader. This is immediately recognisable from the angle of the rear wheels and is particularly advantageous in close quarter manoeuvring situations when a tight turning circle may be preferable. Jono will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this feature was confined to a limited production run at Solihull in the late 1980s and was available on all models with an 'ST' serial number suffix.

Another Angle

Don't you all think we are paying these guys too much.

A Landrover at £20000 +

A Nice big RIB with twin engines, nearly new or new at £25000 plus.

Do they really need this kit ?

If anyone can reason why then I will be glad to listen.

I reckon my 4 meter Sea Rider would do all they want and cost a hell of a lot less.

Its not as if they are chasing drug runners or terrorists. That job is for the Police. Or am I missing something here.

No actually

Car:
2001 Land Rover Discovery
Description:
7 ton steel coil fell from a truck and hit the car head on.

Location:
Perth, Australia

Injury Report:
Driver was killed instantly - no suprise there!!!

Having seen the mess a Land Rover can make on a normal car it just goes to show the only thing that would have survived the steel coil would have been a tank or maybe a dozer with the blade down!!!
