Do you have kids? Then buy it for her as a mother's day gift. That way, you keep the RIB. After all, you can't have both now can you?

What do you think?

The Porsche still gets stuck in traffic (0 mph) and you get nasty speeding tickets at WOT.

RIB - no traffic, not speed limits!

Go RIB and get one that the wife likes and you'll also enjoy your evenings :-)

So the wife is saying the car or the boat. How about get rid of the wife, keep the boat, and the car, and get a girlfriend. Just an option to consider. Seriously, why do you have to give up both? Its your life take a stand.

If its a matter of too much space, keep the boat and get a nice older BMW road bike to scratch that German performance driving itch.

*****trolling through some old threads and didn't notice the date*****

hope you still have the wife and boat!

Be interesting to know how this one turned out ! Guess he must've sold the RIB though or he'd have been back here.

It has been awhile since my last post and yes I sold the rib. I miss it, and yes I own a Porsche now.

If I had to do it all over again would I make the same choice? I don't know.

I am thinking about getting another RIB again, but only time will tell.

If you thought owning a RIB was expensive, then you'd better sit down if you need to replace the Brembo brakes for your 911! Nice car... enjoy!
