I wouldn't worry about telling your dive mates, they already know that you have bought a --t---.

I will get some pictures of the said boat and post them for all to see.

I thought those abominations only caught the attention of rib uneducated americans

really
hope you don't think you'll be doing any satisfying diving off of that. I tried once and all I ended up with was an aggravated waste of a day and bruised shins and ankles.
you could have probably bought a bigger RIB for what you paid for it.

I don't know about what kind of rigging you guys get on your RIBS over there but I have a friend with an 8.5m with all kinds of sound equipment, dive tank rack, electronics out the ying yang and even a live fish tank w/ sump and everything for when he goes out diving.
So a cd player and icebox are no excuse for such a purchase.

Sorry if I am being harsh.

Woot

What makes you think that this is going to be a softer ride than a rib ? surely a rib with a deep v will handle big chop better than this sort of speed boat with its medium v hull !
And to add unless you leave this in a marina your still going to get wet feet launching on and off of the trailer.

Woot i'm sorry to see you go mate,

look on the Bright side ....You have made new friends with the 5 people on Boatmad! As long as you get on the water it's allright with me.

If you need any hints and tips on cleaning give Johnny 'nob polisher' fuller a call

InfBoatsMag - in reply to "hope you don't think you'll be doing any satisfying diving off of that". UK divers don't have satisfying diving we do it because its cold dark and lifeless and we like to suffer, its not the same without a sizable dose of misery thrown in ( before you all get up in arms I'm only joking, well apart from the cold and dark bit ).
Bilge Rat - the boat is much heavier than my little RIB and has lots of comfy seat options. I went out to some coastal islands in one similar last year through a good chop/swell and enjoyed the trip. The same trip would have been fun for me in my RIB but for my wife sat looking at the back of my head for an hour out and an hour back whilst clinging on desperately not much fun. As of next week it will be in a marina 15 minutes from my front door and will be ready for walk on walk off boating, thats the change I'm most looking forward to no more launching / recovery.
Clyde Rib'r I don't intend to mow any RIBS down, unless of course Andy Stevens crosses my bow I know its a hard boat but the gay comment might have been a step too far.

Woot - Seems like you've thought of everything in detail, good luck to you, go fourth, have some fun and we'll see you in about 6 months time when your back to ribbing
