Whilst we're on the subject of shameless plugging, I have very nice Ribcraft 6.4 custom dive RIB for sale with twin 115 Etecs. Ad coming soon to the "for sale" section.

I understand what you're saying Mollers, and agree in principle, but my purchase was very well researched, fitted in nicely with my budget, offers exactly what I want at this time and will probably offer pretty reasonable resale value too if I feel the need to change boats or give up boating. So in this case I don't feel the need to offer a dollop of "bugger". However, that said............... If I'd bought a boat that I believed to be good but it turned out to be pretty crap I'd happily say "bugger" and then tell people why my boat was poor.

As it happens, I've been out in reasonably poor weather with a good mate who drove Royal Navy seaboats/RIBs/barges during his career, where it acquitted itself more than admirably (to both our agreement), it's been to the beach with my family where it also suited our needs, it handles well, it is reliable (there's the kiss of death) and I'm slowly fitting more equipment for it. All of this is building up my experience, competence, and confidence, which I was happy to share and chip in with for a while, but now I'm more reserved due to the fact that I might get shot down because I've never owned a boat "that fits".

That comment wasn't actually directed at you, more a comment about the forum in general. However, perhaps thou protesteth too much.


IMV, some of the information/advice offered up on this forum is so muddied by residual/ego/kudos protectionism, it's worthless.

Stop stirring it you tw@, I know the weather's too grotty for the Vipermax now but you've still got the SR4 when you really need to go out
