Hello from North West

Hi all!

New member here from Cheshire. I am doing my RYA training at the moment and currently on the lookout for my first RIB. I am most interested in RIB cruising and exploring the UK coast!

All the best when you get your rib.

Hi

We are from Staffordshire and do a lot of our ribbing on the Menai in North Wales. There is always someone out and about.

Hi Archie, we're on The Wirral, do most of our boating on The Menai and surrounding area, I'm sure you'll get plenty of advice if you ask, or even if you don't!!

Cheers,
Chris

Hi Archie, we're on the Wirral too. We just started this year with our first Rib. We got lots of help from here and the Facebook Group RHIBS.
If we hadn't had that help we'd be still floundering in the dark regarding what Rib to buy, what engine, what clothing, where to launch etc.
You'll get loads of help from fellow Ribbers, the ones who have been doing it years and can help you avoid any mistakes.
Good luck to you and hope to see you down on the Menai in the spring. Phil and Jane.
