What a cool job!!

I have to brag a little!!

Just been told by my boss that im going to be the demo Driver for our Boat (Ribcraft 5.85) for some of the shows this summer!
How cool is that, getting paid to show off and play in a rib all day.
Should be good, althought i have to spend all of next week away serviceing and rigging Coast Guard Ribs. And of course testing them!

Hi TD

I would not mind being a test pilot for VT in Portsmouth. I saw a few Paciffic's being tested out on the water this week has to be the unltimate job.

Happy playtimes.
Regards

When you say some shows this summer this of course includes RIBEX, SEAWORK doesn't it?

See you there and of course at the RibNet get together

Yes that does include Seawork and Ribex. I also go out on most of the Halmatic trails for all the new build ribs with our engines on, The best ride is the Artic 24 with the twin Mariner 200Efi's on thats good fun.
Or the Artic 28 with the Twin Mariner 250efi's thats good too!!
