Bob, congrats on your new toy! I can guarantee you that you'll never have a shortage of free-loading friends! You might be interested in this thread... http://rib.net/forum/showthread.php?t=17610

You have some terrific wreck diving on your side of Huron. The Dunderberg is one of my all-time favorites and the area around Alpena is amazing as well. I have been tempted to make the run from Tobermory to Alpena from time-to-time, but it's a long haul!

I enjoyed the thread! We already have a agreement on splitting costs (we already do that for gas money for whoever drives). I don't expect to break even but all and any contributions will be accepted! We normally are out diving every weekend anyway, this expands our horizons quite a bit. We are all shipwreck junkies so are all 'tech' divers so we can dive the deeper wrecks. Now I won't need to pay the extremely high charter prices so should be able to dive these wrecks much more often

LOL, I suspect that in the short term, the charters are a lot less expensive that owning your own boat, but it's having the freedom to dive wherever you want, whenever you want. I drag my boat from Whitefish to The Empress... can't beat it!

Introduction

Hello,

My name is John and I live in Vancouver. I have a small RIB, Bombard 385 that I am working on. Someday I would like to move up to a larger RIB.

I use it mainly to fish the waters of the Pacific Northwest. Currently, I am converting from a tiller to a remote.

I look forward in chatting and possibly meeting some of you on the water.

Cheers!

Welcome John... I think you'll enjoy this place. These RIB people are a little odd... oddly amusing that is!

Yeah, I would say that I agree with your observation. I have on this site for the past year or two and there are some interesting topics.

But owning a RIB is definitely not everyone's cup of tea. But it works for me and what I do... and my budget for now.... My two little girls take up most of my funds...

Hello all
Iím Donnie I live in Auburn, WA about 20 miles south of Seattle. I have a 6.5M Mako with twin Tohatsu 90ís. I keep it on a trailer for mobility.

I mainly use the boat for diving and itís in the sound some where pretty much every weekend. With the occasional fishing trip or cruise into the San Juan Islands.

Well good RIBing to everyone out there with any luck maybe we could get a couple trips put together on the west coast.

Hello,

My name is Dave Berry. I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I build and repair hypalon RIBs, tubes, boats etc. Also repair most other types of inflatables.

What a great forum! Great to see more interest on this side of the Atlantic.

Hope I can help anyone needing advice on doing their own repairs.

Cheers!
