Hello from Sheffield

Hi folks!
A quick introduction to say what a sterling forum you have got here and I hope to gain more knowledge and share what I can in the future!

About me... A former sailing fanatic, not owned a rib yet but am on the hunt as we have a little place on the Norfok coast and a RIB has always been on my to buy list, but I am only just getting round to it!

Not going to be buying anything posh to start, but not a banger either.
Will be seeking knowledge as I go...

ebay may well be involved

Hi, I'm not far from you, a fellow inhabitant of the Peoples Republik Whatever you do, when it comes to buying your boat (if & when), ask the advice of the Collective BEFORE you buy, not after

The peoples republic indeed....

Will definitely post up here B4 purchasing rather than after...!

Does 5.5 -6.5 metres seem reasonable for carrying what will be 4 people at most I would think? (usually 2-3)

Cheers
