RIBase
Sheffield Ribber

I'm in Barnsley, plenty of Yorkshire ribbers about these parts. As Poly said, it all depends on how much effort/time & money you're prepared to chuck at it. Buying the boat is the easy bit. I've had ribs for going on 30 yrs, God know how much money I've blown, but who's counting, the rewards are worth it. No such thing as a bad day on the water, it's just that some are better than others😎
Don't view living in the centre of the universe country as a downside, we might be 2 hours from the coast, but we are 2 hours nearer everywhere else. We boat all over the country & abroad. If we lived on the coast, we'd never explore further afield, ask the Solent boys😜


.....sh1t happens.......

Second that we're in Oldham pretty much the middle of the country and landlocked, but everything is more or less reachable in a days towing. That can make a huge difference and you can chase the weather

I'm further west than Sheffield! I am from the west originally it was only the cunning whiles of a woman that tricked me towards the centre ;-)

We don't mind if they go West of Sheffield do we? obviously there be dragons there, but if he keeps out the pubs he will probably avoid HP TonyT and Kerny!

Being out of Poole, I'm probably a 'Solent boy' and don't (now) tow ....

Nonetheless, done (without towing) as extremities: Le Havre, Paris, St Vaast, Cherbourg, all Channel Islands (and Brehat) and Scillies (with various points in between)!

That's mainly West, so probably need to get out East more! Brighton here I come!
