Hello from The North West

Hi

Just thought I would introduce myself after lurking for a while. I got my 1st SIB at 11 years old (A Zodiac ZED31 and 4hp Yamaha ) and have had boats every since.

I currently have a small sportscruiser and have used Ribs and Sibs as tenders over the years. My list includes Zodiac 310 Rib, Futura Sport, 260Sd. Also had a few other makes including Honda 3.2 Air Rib, Suzuki 230 Air deck, Waveline 270 Air Deck etc. I think I may have a boat problem, is there such a thing as Boats Anon

The reason for joining is because I fancy a small Rib or Sib for using on the days when I havent got the time or crew to take the cruiser out.

Yep, in sunny St Helens. Usually go to the Lakes or Wales for weekends and further for longer holidays.

Sorry Steve, didn't realise you were on a mobile etc.

Are you based at Hollingworth Lake as an Instructor?

LL Pirate, where do you go in the Lakes and Wales?

We usually go to Ullswater and Anglesey and Visit Cornwall every year for 2 weeks in August.

Jake
Lakes its Windermere, Ullswater and very occasionally Derwentwater. All over North Wales, Rhos on Sea and Llanduno can be nice, but usually end up launching on the straights and heading for 1 of the beaches on Anglesea or Lunch at Ty Coch.
