Think over the past 8 years or so in the North east there's been 2 bin liner founderings resulting in 5 deaths , granted the Last Call was out in bad conditions at Whitby and the other further up the coast had its transom altered and played about with .

For what it is worth, I had a ski boat before my rib. Fast yes, lots of cup holders yes, but not a patch on a rib. As far as I am concerned a rib is the 4x4 of the sea. The family feels so much safer in the rib, than the ski boat in any sort of sea, and whilst we had a bimini, we used it once in two years, as the sun never shines enough.

I'd not have another ski boat in a hurry.

Do you know, I nearly mentioned one of those and thought it might be "rib.net" suicide!

I've decided to stick with my Zodiac SIB for now

After all I just bought a new engine for it and have still not had a chance to try it out properly
