I would say you're expecting to launch into some swimming pool, but if it's outdoors, you'll probably have 4 foot wind waves there, too.

Great video! We have been talking about buying a crab pot or two now that we have a rib, and now I am more anxious then ever to get our boat back in the water.
We live in Benicia, but I work in Richmond (thinking about the occasional water commute this spring), and I would be up for a Bay RIB.net raft-up.

Nice. So far it looks like we have at least a handful of rib netters that can make it. I will start an official meet thread once the weather gets a little better.

Just repeated waves over the bow. After the first two, the deck had about 4 inches of water in the rear half. Dropped the elephant trunks and it was fine for the rest if the trip. Still searching for a good chiropractor.

I've found a soft warm bed and a lot of Advil and alcohol to be just about as effective. Or at least you don't care about it afterward.
