Hello from GSY

Hey all, long time lurker here thought I would join up. Now seems to be a good time as Im sea trialling a RIB in the near future. Just done my PB level 2 and loved it so itching to get out on the water. Live on Guernsey so there should be lots to do on the sea round here!

Thought I would update this thread with some news. I bought my first boat! Its a 2001 Ribtec 585 with twin Honda 50's on the back. Needs a bit of work as it currently has a dreadful blue and yellow colour scheme but its got potential. All in cost me around 6.5k which seems pretty good. Not had a proper outing on it yet but looking forward to it!

Welcome!

Nice boat too (I know it), congratulations on that. Hopefully we will see you well before the next Floptilla, but stick the date in your diary now anyway.

Did you do your PB2 with Fastcraft?
