Hi all, we have just put down a deposit on an immaculate second hand Ribeye 600, for the family to use. We have the test drive next weekend followed by the final paperwork and hopefully bringing it home!

The four of us are excited already...... and the bank cards are taking a hit for all the extras that "must be bought"!

Looking forward to RIBbing and meeting you all.

Thanks for the welcome - and hats off to crossing the channel in the boat; I'm guessing it rode the waves as well as I expect the Ribeyes to?

I'm near Portsmouth so will mainly be using it in the West Sussex/Portsmouth/Gosport/Solent/IoW area.

Thanks. We're all looking forward to it. Our two young boys got V excited and I think we're excited too..... but also preparing ourselves for stopping the boys trying their hardest to sample the Solent!

Hi and welcome to RIBnet.

As you are in Portsmouth, I'm sure we will see you out and about on the water

The Camber dock in Old Portsmouth is a great place to launch when you decide you are ready to go playing in The Solent.

Have fun!

Steve

Thanks for that Steve, I aim to be out as often as time allows, so you may see us!

I looked around the area and the Camber did come out as being a pretty good choice of launch ramp. (We were down there yesterday looking at another RIB). I believe you need to call QHM on Ch11 to go across to the smal boat channel from there don't you?

Welcome to the forum and wonderful world of RIBs. The Solent is an excellent playground with many places to explore. I'm sure you'll be up for some cruises in the future, in the meanwhile if there's anything we can help you with please don't hesitate to post it on RIBnet.

PS: There will always be someone willing to ride RIB shotgun on your maiden voyage, just ask!
