As Mollers said it sounds like an excellent rig! Hope you took your camera with you? As a Ribcraft owner I am interested in the rig.
Hope all goes well.

Hi There

We have now finally picked up the boat yipee !!

Thanks for all your advice on which boat to buy etc... We ended up with a 7.8 Ribcraft and thanks to your advice I called Solent Rib Charter and they had a boat for sale although we should be out on it on Saturday we wont be going, my back has given out and so we will have to wait just a few more weeks.

Your advice was invaluable thanks once again

It's a very similar lay-out to mine. Have fun.

We also had a some what smaller new addition to the family today. Orange and grey, roughly 4m in length.
