First Time Here!

Just Saying Hi! New to RIB's and RibNet. My wife and I looking to spend lots of time in the Salcombe/Dartmouth area this year. Only been pottering about in the estuary so far!. Have a Brig Falcon 500, currently planning to trailer to/from Cheltenham, except when we have 1-2 week breaks in the area.

Only been pottering about in the estuary so far!. Would welcome the opportunity to meet up with others to go further afield. If interested please get in touch.

Hope to meet soon. Best

Simon

I'm up in the north so not in your neck of the woods, and I'm afraid I'm not much for venturing down south (being an ex-pat Scot!).

The Brig comment above is based mostly on some questionable marketing (allegedly) practised by Brig on this forum a few years back. Their rep has never really recovered. I've been out in company with a couple of Brigs myself and they seem perfectly capable, so if I were you I'd take any knobbling with a bit of added condiment. Most people have a favourite brand of rib; usually the one they've just spraffed a load oaf cash on!

HI Dan

Thanks for the comments.

So far so good with the Brig. Tried to do my homework prior to buying, talked to people, dealers of different brands etc. THis firstbfull season will be key. Looking forward to it!
