Berthing in Dorset... newbie
Hi there - new to Rib'ing and new to this Forum... having had a brilliant day on a friends boat (largish Avon 5m+) on Saturday pottering about and watching the Airshow off Bournemouth I was trying to calculate the cost of owning a RIB.
My friend stores his RIB at a place called Parkstone Marina - dry stack at what looks like just under 3K a year - apart from towing and launching off a slipway is there any other [cheaper] ideas...
Any other advice however general on starting out would be appreciated... it's not the initial cost that scares me it's the ongoing cost fuel, insurance, servicing, berthing, breakdown cover... anything else ?
Cheers - this is a great forum,
