I've spent a fair bit of time kicking round the marina in Los Gig over the years but I don't recall anything like real rib hire, either advertised or operating. Moreover, there were precious few ribs berthed.

In fairness, there were a few tiny RIBlets with put-puts available to hire, but they were just glorified tenders...

I went over there to fit a set of tubes recently for these people:

It might be worth speaking to them as Graham pretty much knows everyone around the Marinas. Very nice people too!!
