Bought a RIB!

I have just bought a Rrib.

Saw the ad;

Humber Oceanpro 6.5 Rib | eBay

and really liked her.

a good bit of negotiating later, and am now the proud owner of a rib.

Was picked up and delivered yesterday, and now i need to wait a few weeks to get back home and see her. Cant wait.

I am gonna bring an Indian summer home with me (I hope) and sept will be hot, sunny and calm! (yeah right!)

Will probably be asking loads and loads of questions later so please bear with me!

Gary

Ocean Pro was one of my choices when we were looking around a few years ago....

Important

The RIB doesn't have thrusters or DP

I think the weather will be brilliant, one monthe has to be surely?

Have a good time

Damn!

We dont have DP, but do have 2800 HP thruster.

Never mind will have a lot more fun in the rib though!

Wont just restrict myself to Sept either, Planning to go to Argyll in December, and will drag that thing too.

Will still get out no matter what!

Hmmmmmm,

Well considering the Humber is Uk built, and good quality, I reckon my 110 will do just fine, as it is UK built and good quality

Wouldnt want any Jap crap

Reason I got a 110, is I rolled my last Jap Daihatsu 4x4, and wanted something a little better hence the 110, plus a protection systems full roll cage!

Gonna be dragging the boat around a bit, but have every faith in Lucy Landy!

Definately got the channels, and counting down the days now......
