Having done a quick piece of googling it turns out that a BIR (rib back to front) is arabic for watering hole, so thats my guess, have you bought a well?

Most people decide on a hull, then probably an engine with seats, trailer, electronics etc coming some way down the list. So have you bought an anchor?
