How long will it be before olly's searider is on the water?

a suggestion

not being a computer expert, would it be possible to give a choice of preloaded searches for the topics suggested by louise etc?

this way the results of the searches would bring up fresh info. with stuff like electronics they update so often, they will be discussed by the usual posters and the newbies can be steered onto the most current pages. it would also mean people post how they are used to and the newbies pick up the best info.

Also keep the general discussion as is i think, good to look at some stuff, especially as they ramble off topic!

cheers

ever ready



Don't be. We have a tiddler of a boat and it has spent so long on the pontoon this summer that divers are considering studying the natural habitat sprouting from the hull

I would say a thread on buying a RIB would be useful - covering things to look out for when buying brand new or secondhand...

Did anybody mention engines ???

Trailers...

What about trailers? Using and maintaining. My RIB wouldn't have 3 holes in the gel coat thanks to my roller trailer if I was aware of some of the problems with rollers.........
