18 Apaches bites the dust.... It got to the stage where we felt really unsafe using the RIB as the material was just aged and rotten. Every time we went out, another hole would appear in the front section. On the River Dart this was less of an issue as there were river taxis and ferries and loads of tenders pootling across and up & down the river constantly so one could shout for help if needed. The River Stour is a completely different beast - you could be on your way out to sea in your life jacket with only the seagulls to hear your squawking, before the life boat can be mustered.
