Alone? In company? 2 up or more than 2 up?

The Mrs will prefer to be beside you rather than behind you. Certainly when it gets rough and you are sitting behind its very hard to tell the helm to slow down etc if you aren't enjoying the bumps. Put more than 2 on board and there will always be people behind. BUT are they all "passengers" or "crew"?

105 hours = less than 1 hour per week of use.

Maybe that's why they are selling it ....

But buying another... ...OK the replacement might improve to Modus Operandi but just seems a little odd to me...

Jepho's RIB purchase search thread

RIB #1
Here is the link to a well maintained RIB. It is a good size, looks to have had most parts replaced recently, has a lean burn engine, is well equipped and is MCA coded.

Humber Destroyer 5.8 plus Suzuki DF90


Ask for pictures of the metal frame bolted onto the transom and to the deck
Not how the transom left the factory ......

RIB #4
Optimiser RIB looks interesting. Once again a little over budget at 12.5k but could be the right boat for me.

Optimiser 6 metre RIB and 125hp Optimax[/QUOTE]


Too late, it's only the hull and trailer for sale now, the engine is going on another rib.

Possibly why he's selling! It's an odd size / configuration for a sea safari boat.

I saw it before the post was deleted. Thank you dubrus... 300hp may not have qualified as a first boat.

Mainly alone with occasional 2/3 up and all passengers. I may take one relative who has a commercial licence to help me learn the ropes but otherwise just leisure for me.

I guess they don't, hence the sale
