CLAMSEALT REPAIR PRAISED BY OWNER
A RIB driver has praised the effectiveness of the Barton ClamSealT when used on his 7.5m Ribtec safety boat during the Bursledon regatta. Given the device as a birthday present, Andrew kept it on his boat, convinced he would never really need it. During the Optimist racing, for which the RIB was a main safety boat, he came alongside the pontoon puncturing the main collar of the boat on a protruding piece of metal. The boat needed repairing instantly to enable the team to head back out to take up their position.
