At last our 5.4m Searider is here :)

Hi All

As most of you know by now I've finally got myself a RIB - we were due to collect today but the seller needed to rush up to Nottingham at very short notice - so we collected last night.

Have just been sat in it on the drive (how very sad ) and she's fantastic!!!!

The seller bought her from BHG Marine just under three years ago - Feb 07 - and has since kept a service book for the engine - so she's had three services since coming into his care. She was born(??) in 1995 and has a Yamaha 75hp Pro on the back - not heard of the PRO are these okay??

She is in fantastic condition - or seems to be to us - have found a couple of grazes on the hyperlon that might need a very small patch and one very small section of straking that needs a bit of glue - other than that nothing else.

Trying hard to persuade hubby that a quick trip out this afternoon to check she does'nt sink is needed

He has clearly looked after the RIB and was very much a belt and braces man so everything has been carefully looked after.

Will post some pictures once the camera has recharged!!!

Jxx - a very excited RIB owner

Hi Jean, What area are you from? I used to live down that way (South Bersted, Bognor).

Trying to get a group of ribbers together for a bit of fun along this end of the coast. No dates or venue set yet- but as all the gatherings seem to be west side of the country..
thought I might try getting something going in the South East.

Regards

Mike

Hi Mike

That sounds a good plan - we are near Horsham, West Sussex

Let me know if you sort something - or if I can help with the organising
