For the second year running Humber Ribs have had an extremely successful Seawork show. With three boats on display including the Suzuki powered Dorset Police boat (Humber Ocean Pro 7.5m) and Padstow Harbour commissioners multi-purpose boat (Humber Offshore 9m) as well as the Yamaha powered Humber Ocean Pro 6.3m patrol boat, there was a variety of vessels for both stakeholders and visitors to view.
