Findhorn rib

Hi thanks for letting me join!

Im on my second rib now and have always browsed the forums for advice.
Previously had a 6m destroyer with a 150hp optimax now sold
Just picked up a XS700 with a Suzuki DF200 on it
Im sure some will have seen the boat it was advertised over the last year or so. Its always been too expensive for me.
However we did the deal and shes mine! Doing some refitting as was used as a dive boat and i just want her for family touring. Lots to do anyway advice is always gratefully received.

All the best

Andy
