It made the Tonado which I was testing seem a little slow, but it is my first RIB and I'm sure that I will be out in it soon gaining more experience.
Here is my pal Andy who will be cruising with me

And me of course, I couldn't resist this RIB.
My wife Patsy will probably disown me, goodness knows where I'm going to put it?

But son Sean will be in heaven!

That's of course if Phil can get it off the mud at West Kirby!
After a short haggle I decided to buy it.
We had a great day out Phil, thank you and I'll be along to collect the RIB ASAP
