Hi Timw

I have a 5 Metre Ribeye with the same kind of layout as you.

I chose this for the same reasons you gave.

Would be interested to see how your idea works out as I nearly alway stand when driving.

I saw a couple of companies at the boat show who say they would be able to make this bolster cushion and when I get one made I shall post pics of it.

I'm very clear in my mind what I want, and I'm sure it will make a very good driving position.

I'll let you know

Very Nice!!!

Hi Timw

I am so glad I went for a Ribeye!!!

They certainly have a style of their own and handle so well in all conditions.

Very nice Rib you have hope you get as much fun as I do out of my Riblet "baby RIB"!

Hello 1492,

some people on this forum think they're ugly, but I don't care!

Do you want to start a Ribeye owners club?

Hi Timw / 1492

I love the look of my Ribeye. But more importantly I love the way it handles in all conditions.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (or something like that).

Anyway perhaps I will see you out on the water next year.


Peter

Hi TimW

I just love your Ribeye, I fell in love with one at the Southampton Boatshow.

If you are planning a trip down the Thames again, please do let me know, we travel up and down the Thames, starting out at Windsor. We would love some company!

I've given up the idea of putting her on the tidal Thames this Autumn, but will be launching in the spring at Putney and keeping her on a mooring near Battersea for a month or so before returning to the south coast.

I'm planning to take her out to watch the boat race and the London Marathon in spring 2004 if anyone wants to join me.

Happy Winter

Afternoon Timw,

I also have a RibEye, a 5m Playtime that I purchased from the Yamaha Stand at the 2002 SBS. Great Boat…. I am looking to up grade her to a new, BIGGGGGER one. At the moment I'm looking at a second user Ribeye 750 Sports. I think the biggest problem with Ribeye are the sales staff (more later if they continue to, well, p*ss me off! ) the boats speak for them selves.

I'm based just out side Chertsey and would love to join you on the Thames next year, please keep me in mind.

I hope Snapper does get her hull wet over the winter, I think this time of year is more fun, bigger waves and less boats with those hanky things hanging from flag poles!

You'd be most welcome to try out Snapper, either on the Thames or on the South Coast.

I'm afraid she's well and truly put to bed now as I'm such a wimp about cold windy weather...but re-launching in April.

Regarding the RibEye people...I've found them really helpful, if a little slow. Snapper was the London Boat Show boat and their demonstrater, so I dealt with the Dartmouth people.
