Greetings ark125,
I'm sure you'll find all your answers here, as for launching you'll need master ocean mariner certification for launching in some areas from what some say. Althogh safety equipment with some local knowledge and understanding of the tides and common sence in others, either way that's a nice size starter boat you've got there, plenty of fun to be had and easily transportable.
Happy SAFE boating.

Hi there from and ex-pat Yorhshireman now in the far north.

I've only been on here for around 8 months but found the warmth of welcome and advice invaluable.

So much so that I actually paid to become a RIBnet supporter... and as a fellow Yorkshireman, you must know it's good if I'll actually pay for something voluntarily :o)

Enjoy!

Best wishes and welcome

Steve

Aha, thats great! I Enjoyed reading those posts greatly.. i envy both of the places you live!
As for me im actually currently living in Plymouth as i'm studying here, since i have spent so much time near the sea now im dying to get out on it more and im now looking for a 3.2-3.6m inflatble hulled rib with a 15hp outboard for around the 1.5k mark.. proving difficult but hopfully somthing will show up! The Suzumars are looking promising...

wish me luck!

Alex
