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.
