Ever since i started sailing in the solent when 8 i have always wanted a rib! when i got a bit older i was moor picky with my wish list. However funding was always a problem!
Three years ago i bought my first starter rib. Zippy, the Black BWM that tought me so much and gave me huge fun.
As my means increased i bought Martins Coastline (remedy) which was a fantastic boat and really made me appreciate the abilities of ribs in bad weather.
All this time however, what i really wanted was a Scorpion! now i know some people will say there are better boats out there but in my view, the are the best compromise between performance and looks.
so here it is!!
We were planning to bring it back by water yesterday from Poole but in the end decided to bring it back by road.
Many thanks to Richard for transport and help yesterday. i owe you several pints and some grub!!
