Hello

Hi I've been a member here for years however have always had hard boats.After every boat I bought and sold I nearly brought a rib until yesterday when I picked up my new boat a 2009 ribeye 600 which will be kept in whichever Hamble marina does the best deal for 2013. We live in Bursledon so tend to get out on the water quite a bit however have a two week old so wont be stacking the boat till April. Look forward to tying up with some of you next season in the Solent.
Do any of you have any opinions on the best local Yamaha dealer to start a relationship with the engine is 2011 so needs the full dealer stamp etc for the warranty.

Thanks for all the advice and welcoming comments it turns out that if you live in Bursledon it's cheaper to get a company in Chichester to drive to you rather than use the local yamaha dealer And the next most local dealer both of them were at least three figures dearer than the nice people in Chichester

Well I'm happy to say hello and welcome. Don't worry about the natives, but your hard boat history will have some of them calling the local priest to perform an exorcism! You'd probably have been okay if you'd bought an Avon Searider.

Anyway, I'm in LH and launch at Warsash so look forward to seeing you out on the Hamble and beyond.

I do own a small sib with a hard deck for the kids along with a 1965 Glastron Sportsman 17ft with hopefully a 135 Mariner (issues with my 115) plus various paddleboards/windsurfers/surfskis etc !!
Hi AJ !
Will I be shunned ??

Sea rider

Ha nss sea rider It's taken 5 years to convince my wife that a rib is a good idea and if I'm being honest it's only because a little one came along that I've done it so a sea rider would have been a q7 to a 1970s land rover. I know that's going to wind a few rescue boat owners up but it's not all about practicality it's about having fun I don't want to go to France maybe Bournemouth Cowes and lymington on my precious days off with a bit of wake boarding thrown in I know the ribeye is not an Atlantic going rib that will give a perfect ride in conditions most people wouldn't even dream of but it's a nice looking safe craft and to be honest ribeye have been amazing so far helpfull and nice to deal with a trait that most hard boat dealers don't hold. Looking forward to April now and regular trips to the folly and meeting some of you guys in the rib park at Cowes yacht haven

A belated welcome. Let me say I have never owned a hard boat, well unless you count one of the four kayaks in the garage!
What counts is that you have seen the light Hopefully see you out on the water. A bit radical I know, but why wait until April, the nappies can wait until you get back
