got our Olympic rib!

Went to the Ribcraft factory to collect our 'new' (ex olympic)585 last Saturday !
Launched on Sunday and very pleased, its quite a step up from our existing club rib.
It will join our small fleet of 'motor boats.
(not supposed to call them rescue boats)' at Eastbourne Sovereign Sailing Club. A dinghy and catamaran racing club.
Ribcraft were excellent, we had a tour of the factory and left pleased that we had invested in a Ribcraft, particularly as it has a Suzuki on the back.
Looking forward to fitting it out for our needs, tools, spares safety stuff.
Its my job to make a console cover for it!(Upholsterer!)

Gary

Yes, we get that as well. Safety boats they're called now. Tsk.

If our Ribcraft 4.85 is anything to go by, your new 5.85 should make a really nice open meeting boat. A flexible working platform with space for a whole course-full of big inflatable buoys, I should imagine .
