JBT Marine (Rib dealers)a terrorist threat…..?

Just the other day, I was returning from Fairweather Marine (outboard motor engineers / dealers) through Portsmouth Harbour to the Camber dock in one of our 7.8 m Ballistic RIBS. It was freezing cold and dark , so I was dressed up warmly in my black Musto oilskins.

It was not long before I realised that I was being pursued by the Marine Police unit (Blue flashing lights, search light and loud hailer in hand!)!

I guess they don’t get many people out in high speed Ribs in Portsmouth harbour at this time of year at night.

It turned out that they were stopping me to check I wasn’t a terrorist! With all of the Naval facilities in Portsmouth I guess marine terrorism is a bit of a worry at the moment. After some friendly questioning they let me carry on my voyage home.

I didn’t realise, but these days if a Policeman stops you and asks you what you are doing, they have to give you a written ticket to record the event officially, even in boat!

So if your out late at night in your boat watch out! Somone might be watching you!!!
