The guys on here are very knowlageable on all things rib related.
I have and do trust their advice. I even give some myself from time to time.
I am not a firm in any way like most people on here.
The people on here who do run companies are always helpfull and some even give us good discounts for ribnet members.
why on earth would you use galvanised coach bolts to hold anything on a rib . they will just corrode like crazy. !???
stainless or glass it down is the only way.
Thats why i joined and even though ive fished all my life, weld boats for living, owned and restored a 14ft dejon to summer fish off, i joined rnli to gain a vast amount of sea knowledge then got the bug for ribs, joined here to get info then bought one!
Im a newbie to the rib scene and cant wait to buy bits n bobs making boat safe, hence the aux.... always plan ahead in my eyes
The wealth that alot of guys on here have is what i aspire to & in years to come i will be happy if im halfway there.
Getting back to the thread of "what Aux" they look very old fashioned but how about an old seagul? they great little workhorses just not modern looking
