dollars

yes i know, i couldnt have afforded it with out parental funding. We had the searider fro 12 years and then my dad hit 60 and the searider was smaller than the growing extended family. I managed to persuade him to fund a new boat that will see him to 70 that was safe enough for the grandchildren to go out. Sales pitch worked well!!

I hate ya! You remind me of my kids!

If and when this Kellogs credit crunchies ends I'm gonna try and talk the trouble and strife into using some of the collateral in the house (if there is any anymore) so she can fulfil her dream of a happy husband

rib eye rib quest

not sure which is was actually, he went for the same make as he had owned before i think.

very happy with the humber after that trip, even my dad felt safe which is a big statement. He still goes on about the day you took us out in feb with the wind over tide out of the marina, convinced him to buy the humber though.

each to their own jono.. i did try Ian's 6.3 and yes its a good boat but it didn't appeal to me. i must say that i,d like to thank Ian for letting me try it out he,s a real nice genuine honest bloke but in the end i decided to go with the ribquest 6.4 140 Suzuki engine. like humber Paul says.. humber has a good name and make a solid rib but in his words it has the look and feel of a defender whereas i like the look and feel of a range rover.The only bad thing about it is from what i can gather is the old ribquest company had a bad reputation but since the new owners took over they do build an excellent rib. Perhaps if they had changed the company name they might not get so much negative comments from people that have not seen their range and build of ribs.. i"m new to ribs having only owned one for the last 2 years but in those 2 years i,ve looked at more ribs then i,ve had hot dinners ...lol i may not have your expertise and knowledge when it comes to ribs but hopefully if possible id like to join your cruise on the 24th(thats if its ready) then you can give it the once over and see if you still want to compare it to ribeye..!! just dont call me ribquest tone,,, lol
