My vote's with Freebird.

Ooooh - Freebird was (is?) the name of a make of Surfboard. It was cheap, nasty, heavy, and a b*gger to paddle. It was, however, bullet-proof which is why it was a popular hire-board.

Not that I'm comparing it to a Gemini ......but the name might have conotations...

Now 'Voodoo Chile' - that's cool - can I use that if you don't?!?

Don't be bossy Missus! Me an the boys are having some fun!

Help yourself Dylan! and to be honest toughness is very high on my list of priorities for a rib!

Manos Mobile will work again at 1930 hrs tomorrow. But be quick cos I have gone through three in the last fortnight!

Louise sorry for answering your question thinking it was Manos I've been snorting the Toulene again!

hi ho all
im actually enjoying all the opions , as its a bit hard to know when salesmen are making up stories . its great to hear from people actually using the boat .

the 505 looks good but we wanted to be able to do some launches form small ramps and weight is a bit of a consideration . we will just have to toss up the advantages of lighter small as opposed to bigger , more roomy better & ride .

hey edward.. the gemini 505 on boat point is in storage and the owner has gone away till the end of the year but ill kep my eye out .

if your serious about selling yours you should send me some boat photos and particulars of motor age and asking price ect.

id love if anyone out there is using their rib for diving if they could post some pics of their deck so i can see some ways of setting up

reguards
matt
