RIBase
First time out with the entire family

At long last I got the entire clan out on the rib yesterday (3 children 4,6 8 and mammy) We spent most of the time at 3-6 kn with a max speed of 18 kn. Spin around a small section of clew bay. we were out for about 2 hrs. No complaints other than a bit cold. All looking to go out again. Had I had a large rib I would have been in bother as the parking was very tight in around the slipway. with a small rib you can unhook it from the car and move by hand in a small area. God I love small ribs.

A successful introduction to ribbing I believe.

Well done
I wish my first and only outing with family in tow had gone as smoothly.
Anyways up, plenty of room in the boat these days

It was snug on the rib, but all parties behaved well and things ran smoothy
