Rib Crusie N Ireland and Scotland??

Having only been out a few times in the Rib since purchasing last year and subsequently completing a refurbishment this winter (pictures to follow soon); I would be keen to cruise with others and while Iím not sure what the interest would be or indeed the cruise itinerary. Can I use this post to gauge the interest and other cruise suggestions welcomed-perhaps sometime in the spring!

Cheers DJ

Hi DJ
Good idea the more cruises the better! As you will see from a post further down the page Tony Hill has started one around Easdale and the Islands for the first w/end in may. It is only a suggestion but could the two ideas nor merge in that you could touch base on your way too or back from somewhere?
Only ans idea maybe one of my well know ones from 'left-field'

[QUOTE=willk;383942] All the better for it!

Willk the clicky link was an excellent post with fantastic scenery and it brought back memories of the Rathlin swells! A little bit of reminiscing and the last time I was round Rathlin in a rib was about 15 years ago in a new 5.5 Tornado V4 115 Yamaha; now Iím back to ribing with a boat of the same age!! Perhaps I should lower my ambitions to more local cruising until I have proved the old girl and the set up.

RIB Cruise from NI

I would definitely be interested in a cruise in company to the West Coast - if I can get the time off work! Let me know if anything materialises and I'll try and get the time off. Have always fancied a look around the Corryvreckan area....

Kind regards,

Mike

Keep me posted too.

I'd certainly consider it depending on ........

It's always worth doing things in company rather than by oneself!!!!
