Nice shots Matt
Codprawn you don't have to have a RIB to post on RIBnet...and anyone can post advice. There has got to be a 'caveat emptor' element to actually taking
advice posted online however!
If possible it's good to get 'out there' with other people and learn from others who know what they are doing. In our experience, the vast majority of peeps we have met through RIBnet have been excellent boating companions and fantastically generous with advice and help on the water. Those remain the best indicators for us at any rate!
(Oh you don't have to post details of your new RIB or of any of your possessions online either
. But we are always happy for others when they get a nice new craft, whether it's a canoe or a Cigarette!!!)
