Ballistic Owners

I wanted to see who on here own / uses a Ballistic RIB? I have a 6.5 and love it, but have some questions about them, and would like to see what other people think of the ones they have?

Hi Steve,
I have one too!
It's also a 6.5, have had it for four years now, great bit of kit, never let us down even in some big seas.

Hi I have had one too for 2 years and think its a fantastic boat. It's handled 30 knot gusts mid Solent , yes not particularly comfortable in these conditions but never felt unsafe.

Went our last year when minus 5 degrees. Engine always starts first time.

What are your questions ?

I love mine as well... cant wait to get back out in her!

What years do you have? mine is a 2007.

Do you have a bung in the front deck locker?

I seem to get a bit of water in my hull, and guess it comes through the anchor locker, and down into the deck locker and then into the hull - the only real way i can find to empty this is to park down hill, with the bows down, and then get the bailer out.
