Cheers Olly.

The run in proceedure for mine is really only 3 hrs of gentle stuff and then another 7 hours of not going at full throttle for more than 5 minutes.
I did the first 3 hours today. It was difficult to keep the RPM down.


That is a beauty Colin.
Ribcraft do make a fine Rib!

You've had your eyes shut. Had a right good run round Monday night on her. She goes like a treat. You really should sell your Bayliner and buy a RIB .


ps. Don't tell Antony I said that

Nice looking boat but a fair kink up at the nose - may not look quite as pretty as a Revenger or similar but it should be fantastic in big waves - not much chance of stuffing that!!!

Those are some incredibly nice RIB's, I think I have the smallest most basic RIB of this forum but it gets me around for now. Purchasing either the Zodiac Pro 12 or 16 man and the Bombard will be my dinghy. Please try to refrain from falling out of your chair laughing

Better than the boat I have at the moment which is bugger all........

From what loads of people have said small boats like that can give you just as much of a thrill.

Talking of which I had great fun the other day in a 5 foot inflatable - at a theme park hurling down a water filled tube at what felt like 100mph - especially in pitch darkness!!!
