How many boats do you need?

I wouldn't swap my battered old Delta for anything - Not fussed about tube marks, beaching, dings...

BUT
that Revenger 31 would be good for nice flat days....
and a Rayglass Protector would be great for extended cruising and camping around the Western Isles...
and maybe a Zapcat just for arsing around..

Anyone beat 4?

You have forgotten the Banana Shark for the racing series and trips to Norway & Gib each year.

My family of four did have 7 between us at one point, although only one being a RIB, think we are down to 6 now

Ere cooks, can you employ me to race for/with you? Very reasonable rates, and 110% commitment.

A friend of mine Pete Kidd is working out in Malaysia building boats, one of which is the submersible RIB - powered by electric motors underwater!
