Dave's new RIB

These are just a few pics of Dave's first outing on his RIB with the Black Rock Boys.



It was a tad rough out there.

Nice looking boat, is that a new Avon 560/ 620 or a Searider 5.4 as per your profile? Notice its the new style, Avon dark blue.

Regards,

Alex

My mate Dave's new RIB

Yep it is a nice RIB, it's an Avon 6+ with Mariner 75hp 4stroke
The conditions were awesome on Saturday but the Rib handled superb.

Not much height on the transom, did you flood the deck at any point?

Have the same problem any day on water. Big pumps are good things on low transoms

I was coming in as you were going out - and it WAS rough out there!

Hadn't realised it was you and the RIB looked great!

Hi

We have got a 560 with a 90 hp honda on the back. They are great, would never go for another make again. We like it so much next year will get a bigger avon.
