Limeydal,

Your just a rebel. You and your orange rib makes you even more suspect.
You should see how they tail me around the LA harbor. I only have time to go in the evenings. You can imagine they think I'm doing something sneaky in my rib, not your typical pleasure craft

Dirk,yes I know i am not a performance craft, but i do seem to have a habit of being pulled over! The guys below pulled me over last time ,which I must seem little fry for the horsepower they had available.
Well I better not throw my "brick" of bread pudding over the side or else they may think I am trying to ditch contraband
I know where the T-Agos launch ship is based ,so will keep a look out for it. They have to practise with these things sometimes! Would love to get some photos (now that would get me pulled over again! ) Well, 5 agencies pulled me over so far;so going for the record
cheers Dal
how fast does that hard sided go?

Choppy,
they are pretty slow at around 12 knots.They were originally surveillance ships converted for Drug enforcment use.

And ,no rebel here
Just a soon as I head out of San Diego Bay, I am just a couple of miles from the Mexican border. Also most of the American pleasure boaters consider summer over now and not many of us out there.
So as a newbie trying to learn handling the RIB, i am out there in the heavier swells that tend to put the locals off.So think it's a case of part being intrigued and part boredom that the local enforcement boats check me out so much.I have been pulled over about 6 times so far; always officious to start with and then once identity is established they seem amused I am in such a boat out there.
cheers Dal
