yea it seams that way might be the way forword

i have my heart set on SR4 or alike should be cheap(ish) to have stored locally the only thing that might be an issue is relying on someone with a motor to launch/recover ect

sorry, meant boat storage/launch, brain fade again
best thing we've done, just turn up, load the gear in the rib and get a tractor launch/recovery, i know it adds to the overall cost, but to be honest we just couldn't manage with the two of us with our rib doing it any other way and i'm not ready for giving up the rib yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chris - as far as I know there is nowhere near to Scotsman who offers a dry stack / tractor launch service as such. There are some places where he may be able to keep the boat afloat though...

none - that I know - but plenty of places to store afloat - methil fishing club think runs the berths next to break water.

I don't the forth ports will be much use - if it was SIB we might be able to work something out at the club regards storage of deflated boat.

The Harbour Trust deal with moorings and harbour is pretty full, but they might be able squeeze in a small one!

the other half and i were talking about this last night i have few options

Rely on a tow/launch from freinds/family
local mooring
or just hang off save and get exactly what we want and by then we will be mobile so no need for mooring

in the meantime however i plan on sitting the RYA lvl2 and VHF and possibly get freindly with another RIB owner and learn as much as i can before embarking on our own

i once again thank those of you who have taken time to give advice
