My Log

This is just simply were I can record my known significant logged hours on the water. Substantially on powerboats (RIBs), there are however some hours and night passages on sailing yachts. The log is not anything special but this webspace provides a central location for me to keep up my records. The log is nothing like complete as it omits many hours spent bobbing about on RIBs when diving, providing boat cover for other divers and hours spent testing and training.

 


Boat Testing

I've been very lucky in that in recent years several top line RIB builders have asked me to try out their new production models and ask for my humble opinon on their beloved creations. Scorpion RIBs, Revenger RIBs and Avon Military have provided some of the more exciting experiences. Several boat tests can be viewed on our HotRIBS website at: RIB Reviews.
