Hello from Melbourne

Hi All

I recently purchased 3m RIB from Costco, pushed by 15hp Mercury.

The little boat is giving us a lots of fun this summer, both cruising and fishing..

I look forward to exchanging ideas, suggestions as well as tips&tricks with other forum members.

Thanks&Cheers
Stjepan

Hi Stjepan and welcome to the forum.

There has been chat on here re the Bestway SIBs but not too much user information so look forward to hearing how you get on with yours. The Mariner 15hp 2-stroke is a classic sibbing motor.

Thanks David. I posted some boat&gear photos in the gallery.


My dad had inflatable boat approx 40 years ago when I was 8-9, and we used it maybe for 2 seasons, however my memory about the boat (actually the motor) was mostly related to cleaning spark plugs from oil at least twice a day..



Somehow I think the motor won't be an issue this time, but the pvc boat may be.. The time will tell


Cheers
