Yeah, I thought the water tower in the background looked familiar......

Used to sail out of Stone before life took me north. Still got the grubby marks at the top of my sails from the mud.....

Sold my RIB when I emigrated just over 5 years ago. Toy now is a quad for hitting the trails - of which there is a huge abundance here!

Arctic Cat 500.

Both of those and only a Ribeye 6m? I would have expected something a bit faster!

I could bore you with other cars too - but I'll resist!

I think the Ribeye 650 is a great starter for someone so massively inexperienced as me... I could be tempted into a Sheerwater (for example) or any number of things, but ultimately the family want to go to Cowes for lunch and that's it. So I'm not being pushed towards something bigger and faster.

You'll have read maybe that I had an accident in the boat in the summer (completely my fault), a badly dislocated shoulder and, without being overly dramatic, it could have been fatal had I not been wearing a jacket. So I'm a bit twitchy about the RIB at the moment - looking forward to my confidence coming back next spring/summer.

Maybe there'll be something bigger in a few years, don't know!

You never 'want' anything bigger/ faster - until you try one outand then you find yourself 'needing' it. Go on buy a Shearwater & stick a 350 verado on it - you will love it !
