The idea of being surrounded by mass quantities of boat bits is certain to give grant a thrill. The idea of mass quantities of bbq ribs excites me!
It doesn't surprise us that only a few RIBs will be shown at Miami. From what we can gather, there are not many (small < 6 mtr) RIBs in the States (unless counting the tenders hanging off yachts is considered.) This kinda baffles us - we all know that RIBs are great for fishing, hunting, diving, etc. And often alloy-hulled RIBs (in our opinion) have great advantages in these activities. Do you all think the reason for the limited RIB choice is that fibreglass boats are so cheap (and familiar) in the States? Maybe it's a lack of knowledge? I imagine there are regional differences/preferences coming into play as well. Hmmm....
Guess I'll have to convince Grant that we should visit Europe next to check out even more RIBs!
