Bought my first rib 1 week ago, Avon Searider 5.4 (96) with Yam 60. Met up with Rogue Wave down in Southampton on Sat, very helpful and very willing to share knowledge and experience, invaluable day. First lauch was interresting, but was a great learning experience due to Rogue Wave helping showing us the right way if launching. Ben on Intrepid was on excort dutie for our first run out down the Ichen, and then a fast run up Southampton waters, 27knots top speed with the rain feeling like darts being thrown at your face, but it was bl**dy brilliant.
Engine ran well, very happy, and amazed at how the Searider faired, I now understand why there are so many fans of this well made rib.
Got a hole seasons fun and work ahead doing her up and riding when I can.
Many Thanks to Rogue Wave
this weekend, my first day out on our new rib has gone down as a major success due to these Guys.
