Ribeye

What a great weekend to take delivery of my new boat. A Ribeye A600 with a Yamaha 130hp. I met the relevant people at the factory was instantly offered refreshments and taken to my new boat. Was given a very thorough hand over and the boat was then delivered free of charge to Plymouth Dry Stack. The staff there were very helpful and went through the various procedures. Launched proper on Saturday morning and suffered/enjoyed the critical 2 hour running in procedure ( I am old fashioned when it comes to looking after engines ) I am now about to book in my new boat for launching today and have a blast to Salcome. This weekend I have met some great people - it must be the fresh air in the South West.

RIBase
A couple of photos would whet our appetites! Best of luck with her.

Did you move the Cobra to Portugal then?

Have to agree with you there, we keep our RIB at Alvor, often blast over to Lagos for lunch and then a tour around the stacks and caves. When our children were over at Xmas we were joined by a pod of dolphins that stayed with us for about half an hour, only a few hundred metres offshore from Lagos.

Good luck with the Ribeye......only a tad jealous!
