Wanted Rib + careful driver Ireland

I have a request for help from Nick Leach (editor ships monthly, Photographer & writer of Lifeboat books etc etc ). Nick is currently writing a book on Irish Lifeboats and their stations and I occasionally help him out on the south coast of Ireland with my boat as a photo platform. He is asking whether anyone in the following areas are willing to give him a few hours over the next few months. As he is carrying photo kit worth nearly as much as my own boat, he needs a well found boat capable of surviving a 25 knot wash off a Severn from close in !!

Northern Ireland - All , Easter 05
Dublin Bay
Galway
AranIslands
Arranmore

If you are interested please contact me and I will forward the info to Nick.
He's usually good for a pint & lunch

If you want to see some of Nicks Photographs , check out the gallery's at

www.crosshavenlifeboat.org
www.ballycottonlifeboat.org
www.youghallifeboat.org
or the current issue of Lifeboats Ireland 2004....most of the photos within are Nicks


Happy New year to all

Jon
