Hello!

Hi everyone, I've just bought my first sib...an old 3.8 m achilles with a 15 hp 2 stroke tohatsu. I live close to the solent..this might sound ideal but, I've no idea of where the best places to get out and try it out..without showing myself up!
Any ideas please? I'm a bit worried about getting caught out with tides etc...

Welcome to Ribnet There is a healthy SIB community on here.
It would help if you could say where abouts in Hampshire you are based.

I live in Alton. Hauling island is closest, but anywhere in the solent would be good really. I know langstone harbour but that's about as far as my knowledge goes!

Hi bish...

New to this myself, but check out the 'Upcoming rib cruises' section. There is something going on this Sunday that may interest you.?
