Just bought my first RIB !

Hi all, a quick hello from another new member. Just bought my first RIB (Zodiac 500 with Yamaha F50) which should be built and ready to collect this weekend. As I have very little real world experience with RIBS I would be interested to meet up with anyone local to get some experience and maybe do some touring about or fishing. I have done the RYA powerboat level 2 course about 8 years ago and owned a 28ft cruiser about 10 years ago but never really went anywhere in it so I'm effectively starting from scratch. I'm on the Isle of Tiree in the Hebridies so I doubt there are many people in this area but perhaps in and around Oban ???
Anyway, I look forward to meeting a few people and pestering you all with my daft questions on here.
Tim.

Welcome to RIBnet! There are a few out your way - fraztiree for one. On the west coast of Scotland, especially around Oban, RIBnetters are commoner than deer ticks in bracken
