Commercial rib charter

Steve’s charter of 2014, commercial work

Steve Morgan skippered for a commercial charter this year where Solent Rib Charter provided guard vessels for a cable lay between Beaulieu and Thorness Bay. 

The project was the first subsea electrical installation in the area for around 40 years replacing the old supply with a new 5.7km 132kV (extra high voltage) electricity cable for residents and businesses on the Isle of Wight. 

Above is a photo of the Cabin Ribs moored on a huge ebb tide between crew transfers and guard boat duties keeping pleasure craft away from the operating area. Below, Beaulieu Spit on low water springs. At least they had good weather for it!
