Hello from Yorkshire

Hello, I thought I'd join up here as I'm thinking about getting a Rib in the longer term. I've just returned to Yorkshire on a more permanent basis after working in a few different places. Anyway if everything goes to plan I'll be living on the coast (Staithes), so may be looking at a boat to moor up for long periods.

I'm into my surfing and spearfishing, I can wakeboard (just) after me and a friend taught ourselves a few years ago in his dad's old rib. So combined with day trips and the odd bit of line fishing I'm thinking a Rib is a good do it all machine.

I've booked a powerboat level 2 course in a few weeks time but won't be looking for a boat until the end of the summer/next year, but thought looking on here would help me work out what kind of rib would meet my needs.

Welcome to the forum. You'll be fine on here as long as you don't slag Landrovers off !!
Lovely at Staithes, I owned a house down the bottom at High Barrass (poss spelling error) in the early 1980's. Tough spot to access.

Thanks for the welcome. I think there's a harbourmaster of sorts at Staithes, I'm going to investigate everything once I've moved there, first thing is completing on the house!

Although it's only just over a fortnight until my Level 2 course
