Hi . I have been dreaming of owning a RIB for a few years now and am about to do my RYA l2. Once that's done then I'll be looking for some solid advice in spending my limited cash on a small RIB. Looking forward to your collective years of experience

Hey Billy,

Welcome to the madness

When the time comes just tell us your budget, needs and ideal layout and I am sure we can recommend something suitable. You are coming into typical buying season soon so you have picked a good time.

Cheers

On the Humber. Wanted a coastal course rather than just inland.

Thats good. You can then spend ages checking out all the other boats around and asking loads of questions.

I did mine on the South Coast and must have spent half the time checking out boats in the marina and sales yards.

The boat show is a good place to check out a load in one go as well.
