About to buy my fist rib

Hi everyone.

Live in Northern Ireland, and after a very tough few years have decided to treat myself and kids to a rib.

Grew up on the water as a kid but adult life hasn't allowed for the luxury much but the itch never left me.

Have 2 young boys and quality time has been severely neglected past few years, so am biting the bullet and finally introducing them to boating.

Quite excited!

Thankyou.

The kids well deserve it. Have finally just reached full recovery after 3 years dealing with crushed legs (work accident).

Not bought yet but have one in offer. Am going to pop a post in the forum just to get opinions. I think its a good starting point but would be great to hear other opinions.
