Rib Charter wanted.

Guy's,
Does anybody know of a place where I can charter a rib for a month next year. The boat would need to be at least six or seven metres long and be capable of the round Ireland event.

charter

Scotty there is a place in south I think Cork I am guessing here they do Zeppelin ribs I think, I will email a friend who knows more about it, but I think they are in Cork, By the way the guy who is berthed beside me and Tim has done a circumnavigation in a Zodiac 5.5 with a 115 Yam two stroke, 4 of them took the rib around Ireland it cost around 800 punts in fuel and took about a week, the only problem with the boat was uncomfortable seats on long stretches and coming upon containers in the sea in the dark and unlit metal buoys at night but 5.5 was big enough, but you need a big wallet especially for petrol oil and sundries gavin

- in this year's Round Ireland event, I believe that "Black Smoke" (7.9M Ribtec ) was a charter boat, and looking at their profile, I guess that one of their sponsors, Charter International, was the supplier.

HTH,
Richard.

I have just discovered this design fault.... but will tolerate it until next year and we buy something bigger. By the way...now moored up in Howth !

Can anyone explain to me how they can get a RIB coded for charter work that involves long, offshore passages?

As far as I know you ca't easily do round Ireland and stay within 20 miles of a safe haven . . .

John

John,
By "charter" I mean to rent. I would like to rent a rib.

Scotty I put this foolishly on the wrong thread and you may not need to rent a RIB

Scotty, I got beaten on the last Ireland challenge and going around your lovely countrys coastline is definitely unfinished business. The Irish guys on the event were talking about setting up some form of Irish Rib Club....has this happened yet?

I realised as I was rallycrossing the Camel across, and up and down Ireland that I really wanted to do it again as a member of an Irish team. I think my little Scorpion would be much better suited to the job.

If you fancy teaming up . then send me a PM

Cheers
Stuart

Isn't that the same as a charter? (I thought that charter was just the correct nautical term for a rental)
