Hi,to everyone on Ribnet

Hello all, im a long time browser of Ribnet but have just signed up as i like to hoilday in Bigbury on sea, i thought id get myself a little rib to go fishing in and go around the island, bought a one year old Honwave 2.4 airdeck and 2.3hp outboard, which is great for now as i can get it all in a roof box, but my feelings of pride in my vessel were short lived as there is a guy down here with a 175hp sealeg rib which seems to have its own wheels that drive it from his hoilday home down the ramp and across the beach into the sea, better get saving i suppose

When the weather comes down and you can't see three yards in front of you, and the only people who go out are the RNLI on a Sunday morning for training, aside the odd commercial fisherman,

It can get a little grim

But hey when the sun shines I wouldn't want to be anywhere else
