Age of Rib

Just bought a 6m Picton Cobra rib with a Suzuki 140hp 1700cc 2 Stroke engine. I'm a complete novice. Any advice???

Hi Mate, welcome to Ribnet
Advice? Yes, you've come to the right place, there's everything here from novice to expert, starting with you rather than your boat do you have any previous boating experience ?

Powerboat level 2 training would be my advice to start with.
