LOL...wasn't me either.

It looked like a quite well sorted Rib so I wondered if it was someone from here.

Funny, I was out and about with the family today and saw several RIBs being towed places.

One heading up the A3 behind a Jeep about 09:30, a Blue one in Sainsburys Fareham petrol station about 11:00, and another very smart Blue one with Coastguard on the side, on a trailer, on a flat-bed lorry, going along the M27 towards Fareham just before lunch. (As you can tell I'm not very good at Identifying Ribs)

Got me all annoyed I didn't have mine hitched up on the way to the slip.

By the way, wasn't me on the M5/M6 either

I see them all the time being towed on the coast on mondays/fridays-it was a tad unusual seeing one being towed past Birmingham on a Thursday in the pissing rain though.

I did wonder if it wasn't GarfIE trying to find Southampton from Bitterne.
