Two of my mates have almost decided that they would like to buy my rib from me for a reasonable price and I've managed to sell my old Channel Island 22! Hoorah!!!!
So I'm in the very nice position of getting Barnet to quote me for a 9.5m RIB with twin Optimax 225's on the back. Sooooo excited if it all comes off!
Anyway, I've never owned a RIB of this size before and I'm after a little advice:
The tables show that a boat of this size should use a 10-15kg bruce anchor, 40m of chain and then your 10mm warp on top........where the hell am I supposed to put this thing?? (Baring in mind that the XS700 that I currently own uses a 5kg bruce which fits in the bow locker.....not sure that a 15kg bruce is going to fit if it's the same size hatch!?!?!)
Has anyone got any other recommendations for a 9.5m RIB and what they use for anchoring in sandy/silty bottom intermingled with the odd rock??
With this size anchor/chain and that fact I'm a fat, unfit git......would an anchor winch be advised??
Any help greatly appreciated!!!!!
