Irish East Coast Members

Hi All,

Just wondering what members do we have along the East Coast North of Dublin. I have been a Rib owner this past 2 years and only just joined the site.

Plenty of info available, and thinking of changing my Rib very soon and was looking to talk to a couple of lads with 6-8 metre ribs.

All the Best,

Jim.

Welcome to RIBnet - It's life Jim, but not as we know it

I was running a 6.5m twin outboard Redbay there for a few years and have been messing about with the bigger models since (I like a bigger model, like the 850). Any info you need, say the word.

Hi Jim - you are very welcome

I operate an SR4 in Carlingford Lough and a 7.4m Redbay out of Cushendall.

I am involved with the RYA and the RNLI so PM me if you want to chat sometime

East Coast Ribs

Hi Guys,

Thanks for all the welcomes! Good to know there are people so close with a bit more knowledge than I have!

Moonshadow: I'm in Clogherhead alright, launch from the outer slipway usually from April to October. Do you be down round that area much?

Ribochet: Very interested to hear from you, I will PM you. I am an RNLI crew member in Clogherhead. And very interested in the Stormforce range. I was up with the lads in Redbay on there last open day and was very impressed with the boats and the range. I was looking at 750, but think that a Stormforce 650 might be sufficient for my needs. I'm currently working offshore, so my boating season is limited to about 3 months max. 4, a year, and I thought the 650 might be better value for money, based on that fact.

Any other guys out there that had a Stormforce 650 and went to a bigger model? I was also thinking for a while about a cabin Rib to extend the season a bit, but due to the lack of mooring facilities where I live, I feel like it may be too much to handle launching on and off a trailer regularly.

Ah yeah, but 99% of them are pure sh1te

PM me by all means. I've been poking around a few 750s recently. Portnahaven on here is the most recent new owner of a full cabin 750 and I'm sure he and the other owners would be happy to discuss their boats.

If you were at the last open day you saw my old rib - blue and white 6.5 with twin Evinrudes. She sold the same day.

Willk I did see your boat there, and would I be right in saying you were there also?

Had a look at the video of Portnahaven, looks class. Puts cabin ribs up there!

Thanks for info!
