My new Rib !!

Well the money is now in the bank account of "Mike" from this forum and I take delivery of his DR 600 tomorrow. I cant wait and the boat is going straight into the water on Friday. This is a very well maintained boat and a credit to Mike who has been most helpfull. I feel a big spend on petrol coming on

Thanks Louise. I was looking at your web site and noticed you have a 3.5 kg anchor. Will this hold a 7.5m boat ? I use a 7kg plough and feel that it's just about right. Am I over engineering the safety side here ?

Scotty - that's really just the spare/extra one (left over from smaller boat days ). The main one is a 7.5kg bruce which should be up to the job.

Edit: just seen your post Bilgey! Yes, Richard & I are very much looking forward to travelling east this weekend. Looking forward to seeing you all and getting a ride here and there! Oh, and I'm ALWAYS a good girl!
