The D class can be manned by 2 or 3 crew.
I thought Jonny Fuller only hated RIBs, D class's are fully inflatable, least this ain't on fire!

Rule 1:

NEVER OVER-ESTIMATE THE ABILITY OF THE CRAFT, OR THE CREW !

Warning..

This may occure if you listen to too much urban myth, and start to believe it.


PS. Nice pic.......now my screensaver.

PPS. if thats a sib (real rubber dinghy) aint it amazin what the addition of part of a hard boat does for em........imagine what a whole one is like.

PPPS. Other than that wee wake, it look like a pretty flat day.....any comments?

PPPPS. I'm enjoying this.

Lesson to be learnt from this. Do not play in other boats wake, when you are not holding on.

The will be off an ALB, the bit he's hit is out of shot to the left and is the perfect ramp for getting air.... if your holding on.

It is a nice pic, thanks Jonny!

Good exercise for getting the boat into the helicopter. Saves the man coming down on the winch.
