Ribcraft 6.5

Hope the new 7.5 is a good hull as ordered a 6.5 on the same hull design with a 175 Suzuki back in October. Just waiting fo delivery, some time at the end of March.

It's a big help reading all the previews before struggling on up there ourselves.

Agree with Cork Rib : the Guinness tent is usually a good barometer of attendance!
Saturday tends to be a popular day i.e. barging around thru crowds all day

Just back from a trek around the show-

The New Ribcraft 7.5 sport looks absolutely great all round....
The New Raymarine A65 is looks like a fine bit of Rib kit for the money...
The New Verado 150 looks interesting.....
The RNLI tamar looks impressive.....
The canal boats look like no fun!

Look out for the cheapest rib at 16.99-on the RNLI stand-could be good for honing those skills in the winter!

80 grand for the boat only then you have to engine it. They will turn people off cabin ribs at this rate----far too expensive

I bet they dont sell many of those

Nice summary Melampus Ta!

But you can't beat a canal boat on a canal RIBs just don't 'cut' it.
