Hi guys, thought i'd join up here as ive been a long time browser of the site. Im currently on my third rib in about 10 years, i started out with a 5m humber assault and quickly changed it for a 5.5 destroyer as i found the assault very slappy in the rough stuff. The destroyer was a great rib and handled so well in rough seas for such a small boat. Anyway once the destroyer was sold on i didnt do a lot of boating but ive just bought another rib and cant wait for the next season to get some good weather to enjoy it.
Its a ferryman frm630, yes, a ferryman lol. I know its a swear word to most ribsters after the fiasco with "big yellow" etc but the smaller ribs seem to be fine and all the research that ive done revelled that there hasnt been any problems with any other ferryman rib. Mine is 2004 with a wrap round console with a df140 suzuki outboard, both have only done 20 hours from new! I plan on upgrading the navagation system and vhf. Also would like to add a sound system. It needs a good clean and i plan on doing a kind of build journey with the progress.
Look forward to chatting with you all. P.s i have my flame suit on for you all to have a go at me for buying a ferryman lol
