Finally signed up!!

Hi there, finally got around to signing up having been actively reading the posts for some time now. Used to have a great Humber ocean pro 5.3 ( currently up for sale) but whilst a great rib it doesn't really work for young kids so had to let her go and go for something more family friendly...ribeye 650. I know loads of you hate them but it ticks all the boxes for Solent area family use with the ability to still have a fun blast at 40knts when the kids aren't there!

See you on the water!

Welcome!

Bottom line is does it work for you? If so it's the perfect boat!

Going from an O-Pro to a Ribeye is likely to cause some discussion.

- bottom line is it dosn't matter what you got if it does what you need it to do!

The humber was a great boat, sad to see it go really but needs must and all that. I'd say the humber was like a go-kart but the Ribeye is the sports version of family saloon! Fun but not quite as hardcore, but perfect for a 2 and 3 yr old.
So far the Ribeye is working really well and certainly very happy with it.
