Fstarocka , Hiya , not sure if this is just your first Rib or your first boat altogether ? The rumour is there are some very lively currents offshore in your vicinity . Search " Aghulas "........!

Make sure you don't ignore the safety aspects of boat reliability ( maybe fish with other boats in company ) plus of course all the other essential kit you may need taking younger folk offshore.....

Happy boating , stay safe .

Split so you lift the lid off or split so you open it like a book?

Looks like Dubrus has covered everything else while I've not been logged on!

That's the pic.. I saw a 97 model with the same writing on the side.. Can it be? Or an 87..

By writing I mean the "sixty" faintly visible.. Not the mariner.. Also the transom was strengthened cos it has a ski bar

RIBase
I got the 30hp version, I take it it's not autolube. A lot of the Mariners of that age are rebadged yamahas and with a little bit of hunting you can get most parts
