Whose boat is this?

Ok so I was out yesterday AND today - brilliant weather it was too all round Cowes / Solent / Needles. Even the RNLI Helicopter came out to play. Great lunch in Cowes Sunday and another one in Yarmouth today. Spotted this very nice rib in Yarmouth but could not spot the owner - anyone we know?

The second rib on a mooring in Yarmouth is quite frankly a puzzle. Check out the blue skies everyone - won't see that for a while from now on!!

The Ribcraft looks coded and believe it was originally a JMYachting at Hamble who were bought out by Solent Rib Charter at Lymington. Only thing I cant be sure of is because it has a 300hp and believe all were 250s

You know what I mean - big red and white job / coastguard whatever. They came really low behind me following us as we went through Hurst - probably looking to do a drill as there was no one else around - but they suddenly flew off.

haha yeah course great when they fly over low. being based near holyhead we have had numerous low level passes by the sea kings from valley out in holyhead bay, theyve dropped smoke canisters in front of us before now, but more often done low level flyover with a friendly wave from the winchman hanging out of the door

Same happened to me 2 or 3 years ago on a lonely winters day.

How big is your name to read? They may well have wanted to do some winching practice but need to call you to discuss it.
