Only just back in the fold after a few years away. We used to have larger ribs towed behind our camper but have had to downsize due to towing a car. We have the FRIB 330 with a new Suzuki 15hp 2 Stroke(dont ask??)and it has proved ideal. It is just about light enough for me to unload alone and takes literally 10 minutes to be ready for the water. I too made the mistake of trapping stones in the hull when unfolding and got a couple of chips first time out(gutted!!) but a bit of filler soon put that right and with the 15 it goes like stink!! Our friends have all got Honwave 3.8s and it will go anywhere they go albeit with their larger tubes they stay drier. The only criticism so far is that mine was sold without transom wheels so I bought some and fitted them myself. Problem is the transom is relatively small so I have to take the wheels off when afloat to allow the engine to move - not a great difficulty but annoying when you have to refit them before landing. All in all I would recommend the FRib, it has everything I want, portability, speed, manouverability and durability to mention just a few
Live every day as if its your last and one day you will be spot on!!
