It's between 1900 and 2100kgs. i assume the Redbay on a trailer is way over that - solid bopats AND a diesel engine - got to be 3000kg or more???

Humber

Welcome to ribnet!

"not technically yours" long as you haven't robbed it who cares? Use of a very nice boat and work pays for it!!! Might ask my work for a boat allowance to go with the car allowance! As if!

Technically the thread is show us your "rig", what do you pull it with?

Ahh..that will teach me for not paying full attention to the thread!
Well my 'rig' is our trusty old Port Authority landy...what else!she is a 57 plate 90' defender running a TD5.not that our rib is out of the water very often!but saying that she is out for her annual clean in two weeks ready for our county show where she will be proudly displayed on our stand....once she has had a very thorough clean though!remember she is a work boat......!

Rig

Hello Gents and my first post here. Not a better locale.
Greetings from Loudon, Tennesse USA.

Rig 2003 Ford Explorer, V8 2WD
1999 Zodiac 480 Yachtline DL 70 Yamaha





Steel Trailer that is slowly oxidizing away and I will eventually replace it with something galvanized. Bought it from a Great Lakes fresh water guy.


Offload in the Florida Keys and into a slip for a few days.

Also have a 3M Achilles LSI with a 5 hp Mercury.



Recent 4 day camping outing on a large resevoir in North Carolina.

Thanks CodPrawn

Our second trip here.
We had 5 days running, 27-28 C days, 15 at night, low humidity and no bugs!! Lots of cold beer. Plenty of wood for fires.
Fresh water for bathing and swimming.


Smoky Mountains. Largest east of the Rockies.



Best camping trip I have ever had and not a sole around.
