Hello from Auckland

Have been lurking for a while. We have lived in Auckland since 2007 and until now owned a 3.4m Geminib RIB with a Tohatsu 18hp. Nice boat but too small for what we wanted to do, go and carry.

We have just purchased a 2003 Gemini 550 Waverider with 90hp Johnson Etec. Good overall condition, apart from the rubbing strakes have been out in the sun too much and yellowed.

Winter here but still hoping it won't be long until we get out on the water...

...also for those interested we are originally from Poole, Dorset.

No replies to this? Welcome to the forum no need to lurk anymore!

I'm no RIB expert but it looks nice, and you should have some fun. Surely your winter is like our summer? Get yourself out there!

Weather has been a bit changeable but will hopefully settle and allow us out. Looking forward to it.
