Has anybody done this before and what was there experiance like.
Have a look at the info gathered together on the SpareRIBs web site. its at www.spareribs.info
Their tips on how to charter your RIB, advise on coding in your area, contacts, and chater contracts you can use (plus loads more) You could even contact the members on the SpareRIBs database (some of which were once in your position) an ask thier opinion)

(this one lets you use the data base to find out what areas you can operate in, with which coding - for any area around the UK)
Craig, I hope this helps, do give me any feed back you have. (SpareRIBs can also help market your RIB chartering work by allowing you to creat an advert (£45 only for a year - no extras!) then you can access yet more tools and resoutses to aid RIB chartering)
Best of luck
