They just exhibited the boat at the Sacramento International Sportsman Expo this weekend.

When are you coming to the East Coast.
To either the NYC/NJ area or the MidAtlantic area
We have members with money waiting on boats

Looks like you guys in the US may well be covered it seems. I wish you all well and it will be nice to hear from someone else rather than just me blathering on about the Frib.

I do have a current passport if required ----------------hehe, well you never know !!!!!!

So Phil
Have you had a chance to really take yours out yet or are you waiting for the spring?
It is currently to cold here on the East Coast to take a boat out so all we can do is go to boat shows and get ready for the spring.
For me the beauty of the FRib is twofold
It is a hard bottom boat that doesn't need a trailor
It works with small outboards.

4 stroke outboards may be great for the environment but they are very bad for older boaters backs.

I have had no chance to take the Frib out as we have had non stop high winds on the east coast which have just not been safe to be on the water in a light boat. I have not given up hope and every week I say the same thing, hope to get out next week, well I live in hope. The weather forcast for my area is to be much colder but the winds are due to drop away.

Where at Peter? We were in the cove over by Baker Beach last week and a whale breached about 15' from the boat, scared the crap out if me. Did not expect that so close to shore.
