Poly said if he could afford a cabin rib he could afford a B&B. True then he wouldn't need a fridge. Kettle etc unless he was further out but then a bed might be handy. The place for wets on my boat is on the engine. It runs at 80 degrees and stays warm for hours when you pull in . Ideal. The idea of the cabin rib is cruising and exploring little places that are too far for smaller boats to achieve in a day. With respect and I don't mean this as a piss take or wind up. Most guys don't want to do this yet.
50/60 miles in a day is the average for most ribbers but that isn't what I built my boat for.
I want to go where ever I want and stop where I want. Not hop from one comfort zone to another

Before I get called a Southern Jessie again I suppose better fess up - I do have a small generator on board - and a Nespresso machine. Nothing like a quick shot of costa italian when you arrive. Before tucking in I tend to run the blower heater to warm up the cabin and the duvet. No shame in being warm and comfortable on a rib - soft or what?

I run a diesel in my rib. You can run hot pipes from the engine to the cabin. a heater system from a car. Range rover. Mini etc will work really well. You can of course run hot water from it as well through a heat exchanger

No I'm not talking that size. What I was saying was to me the priority would be comfortable, warm, dry, wheelhouse not sleeping accommodation - because for me the priority would be to use the boat in wider weather not to sleep aboard. There ARE some hard boats which fall into that category. It depends what you mean by 'cabin' which was agreed earlier on to be any of the possibilities.

for a man who likes a proper cuppa I would have thought you would appreciate a snack / lunch stop with a brew.

Music to my ears Biffer - if you have got a cabin rib there is no sense in not having all the trimmings. Nothing like a hot shower after swimming etc

I'm with Biff on this one- if you're not pitching a tent, might as well have mod cons.
The idea of staying in a B&B suggests that you're only ever going to go places where there's B&B's. That's really quite limiting.
