Never heard of it. I was rather more rudimentary - take the file name and find it on Flickr!

This Rib crashed into a dike on the isle of ameland (in the netherlands)
Ameland is a isle in the 'wadden sea' north of netherlands.
I've had contact with the current owner 2 years ago.
He told me that the previous owner crashed on the dike cuase the waterjets started leading their own life and therefor teh rib was uncontrollable.
The current owner repaired the rib, the damage was a lot moren than shown on the picture above.
I've seen more pictures but cant find them anymore.
There was damage at both sides and some damage to the steering console.
The inboard engine and waterjet has been removed. as far as i know the rib has a 200 etec on the back.
