Who needs a RIB anyway !

Just been out for a quick drive and realised I can get my fix of splashing around at high speed and watching the water fly up in my car instead of the RIB. We've had so much rain here lately that the uneven roads are just full of lots of large puddles that act like little waves when you drive through them.
I also haven't had to put a drysuit on or go through the hassle of launching and retrieving.
And the best thing is I can do around 40 MPG instead of 5 MPG at speeds up to 70 MPH.

Trouble is all those puddles will be gone tomorrow.

Puddles? We have lakes around here - the rivers are almost full and flowing at a hell of a speed - last week they were almost dry!!!

We went to the Solent Boat jumble today and all got very wet.

Of course give it two months and we'll start to get hosepipe bans!

You certainly wouldn't want to fill it with water. But it would be easier to empty. Just open the doors.
