Finally paying for boating

Hi all, new to the boat owning and expense of it all but have had quite a few years of boating experience at the navy's expense! I had to go for a RIB as they are just so brilliant. I have a valiant 620 with a BF115 on the back and will be cruising around the forth and also around Bute. Looking forward to sharing the ups and downs of my trips with you all.
Cheers

Yep, beautifully 'made up 'longside'.

Another big welcome Mac.

Thanks for the welcome guys, photo taken at easter in Tarbet Loch Fyne. We had 5 glorious days of weather and saw porpoise every day. The only down side was my aerial falling off....another 60. Had a slight panic when the tell tale stopped but had the trusty strimmer wire and luckily it was just a gunk build up. Fuel line split....happy days.
