End of the season

I've come to the end of my RIBBing for this year.
I took the boat out on Sunday through the thick fog to the Isle of Wight and back, then off the water and home. Spent the week so far cleaning her up, doing some light repairs and putting covers on all the bits for the winter.

She is now ready to be stored in a barn until the end of March where she will return to her mooring for another summer of fun.

There is no "RIB season" it just goes on all year round.
Get some warm gear and get your sorry ass back out there...

I make myself content manning the clubs safety boats until mid December.

I agree that is one of the reasons I trailer my rib and also why I have a two stroke on the back. Winterisation not really an issue with one of those
