I believe its customary for a new member to get the drinks in so help yourselves at the virtual bar...
I'm an exile from the Uk on my first rib - a 5.05 Gemini Waverider with an 85hp Yamaha CV engine on the back. Noisy but strong and plenty quick enough for the harbour and a little bit of offshore here and there.
Have picked up some good tips from you guys so far on cleaning, expedition prepping and watersports so many thanks...
I mainly use the RIB inshore although for the last few weeks I have been heading outside of the harbour to view whales as they migrate up the coast to Queensland.
If you'd like to see a few shots of our stomping ground down here - take a look at www.epicsurf.com.au
. This is the area where we all buzz around down here. The rib pictured is another Gemini - not mine - but a bigger 6m version, but there are some good location shots if any are interested.
