Boating
We have a 6m Motorised Rib with trailer, radio equipment and life jackets. Our RIB is called Zulu Warrior and she lives at Ken Brown Boatpark at Camber Dock, Old Portsmouth.

As a qualified boat handler you are welcome to take the boat out whenever you like (weather permitting). All you need to do is get your plans ok'd by the Diving Officer and give plenty of notice to the Boat Officer so that the boat can be launched for you.

A charge of 10 is payable to go out on the boat.
