Ultimate rib test

Out in Barcelona an Avon rib was given the ultimate test - driven onto a rock jumping off a wave. Unfortunately the rib came off worse, pics are in Motor Boat And Yachting.
Cheers

Talking of which how come you can buy PBO in supermarkets etc etc but MBY needs a special trip to my local WH Smiths - hence the fact I rarely buy it?

There seem to be just as many powerboats in our area as yachts!!!
