Hello from Wirral and Anglesey

Hello, new to Ribs but not boats and after plenty of thought and advice Inhave joined the community. I have bought a stunning little SR4 from Alex (whisper) called Rib Tigga. I am informed she is a well known Rib and I hope to join some of you soon to cruise the seas. After a few minor issues I decided to take the plunge and upgrade the engine which came with Tigga and a Mariner F50 EFI is being fitted as I type

Alex has been extremely helpful and guided me along with Chris Caton in the purchase of all the 'extras' needed to make our outings enjoyable and safe!!

Cheers guys and happy ribbing

Welcome! Nice choice.

Shame Mr smoooooth (Caton) has had an influence. Just don't take any advice re the tides, who knows, you could end up beached!! LOL

See you in May, or before if you're near Chester.
