Always been about boats of some description all my life, my dad always had yachts (Ruffian 23, then Fisher 25) and my brother used to have a Glastron Carlson CV-23 with a 7.5L Shellby V8 back in the early 90's the same as the one in this vid



which used to do about 80 odd kts which he had to sell when he got married.

At work I have always been around ribs mostly with Artic 22's and Delta 6.8's so we thought getting a Rib was a good idea and a good way to get back into boating, we saw our Pac 22 on Babcock disposals and the rest is history, including my brothers wife not speaking to him for the first couple of months after getting the boat.

How did you get into RIB's

These are interesting posts ...

For me some of my best memories as a youngster were with the Venture Scouts whose leader was a real hip guy into Land Rover Defenders and RIBs -

We regulary went up to Skye (long before the bridge!) camping at Applecross as a base and ribbing around the islands - fantastic summers!! Totally smitten by the Defender bug and now finally able to afford my own RIB - ! Passing down the camping,4x4 and rib scene to my kids now >>>

Applecross - great, sorry, awful spot, we've been camping up there with the Defender over the last couple of seasons. It's horrible, wouldn't recommend the rest of you go there and clutter the place up

Oddly enough, the Army (yrs) were on site that week, lots of very lightly shielded Wolfs (Wolves?) in tow. It seems they run amok on the hills each spring and worry the deer.

If you have enough non-residency time free next year garFie, you should check it out. They have a lot of Moalt

Noooo Garfie. Having 'Non-Pikey' on the 'drag' would get you bombed in those parts.

How are they working out for you, seeing as you have an order of magnitude more of them than we do here?
