Thanks again some more interesting points for me to consider.
Andy G Our club dives the other coast,Firth of Forth so the Humbers would work here too ,but Why are they Humbers ,I am sure theyre great boats but were they offering the best deal at the time of purchase?Or is it a case of well Glasgow SAA has one so it must be good?
Simon..Grants.. Try showing how your club has grown or out grown your existing rib. Show that you train local divers ,do you train disabled people? you must prove any points you make .Our club does all of this and have outgrown our Ribtec535 That we used to take 6 divers out on regularly..Mega overloaded or what!!!
(did I just Type that)
From what i can gather were better of with as big a Rib as we can tow but over 6 mtrs looks like a 4x4 job..Which not all of the club has and if you get one guy doing it all the time that dont work!
Width of beam is important for kitting up and helps make Rib more stable at sea?
Be careful how we kit her out as bottle racks can take up valuable space.
Engines or rather engine size= can of worms.
Bigger = better but weighs more so harder to tow and uses more fuel
4 stroke good because less fumes but not quite as nippy off the mark
Type One mans heaven another mans hell.
Please help me lord!
