Looks very nice, just what the smaller nashers will be moving up to this winter if they get their way.

However, am I the only one that gets annoyed how SIBs on ebay are so often advertised as RIBs?

Your not the only one. Wonder how many new comers to the world of RIBs' have bided on a SIB on ebay thinking they were getting a RIB?


Looks good Tinker, have fun

Nice one, Nasher.

Looks like a good deal, should fly!

PS. Some bio washing powder on that floor should bring it up like new.

Bargain!
If you're in Fowey the same time as us again, giz a go!


Yrp, I get annoyed at ebay sellers who say they are selling ribs...like the guy in the ribnet classifieds who thinks a D class is a 'rib'...

Afraid Fowey ain't gonna happen this year, to remote for the mrs with the s**t weather we had last year, mind you 3 weeks was a bit greedy . Take it your going?

Got a week in the Solent coming up from the 23rd of May, but the Ribcraft's going so ain't sure the zodiac will be there as well.

Cheers for all the comments, reassurance is required with ebay purchases and I have a feeling this 'RIB!' could have issue's. On the bright side if it does turn out to be a dog the fact it ain't a RIB may become useful.

Picked it up on Saturday, 400 miles and 6 hours, well worth it though. Now does anyone want a 4.8m Ribcraft?

I'll be out and about in the Solent on the 30th so might see you out there.

We're doing Fowey-it's too nice up there not to.
