Hi All, I'm new to RIBS but not to boating, we had a bigger power boat for many years.
This afternoon I picked up this from a friend of mine.....
...... it's a Valiant, as you can see, 4.5m with a Selva (Yamaha) 50hp four stroke. It's not a boat I've seen before and cannot find any info on it but intend to use it for nipping over to IOW from Chichester on sunny days.
It needs a good clean up and a bit of TLC but can anyone advise the best way to clean the hull as it's sat in a river for most of it's life and never seen antifoul, can anyone also tell me what size anchor I'll need? I had a good look over it and it seems in very good shape with the exception of the prop.
Expect I'll be a right pain on here while I figure everything out and will post an up date of a gleaming and shiny RIB very soon!!!
