new boat not a rib

You lot will throw me out now I expect .
Just bought a new boat and its not got any tubes .
Ill not say any more as I can feel interest waining allready , but it does have 90 etek .

having trawled the boatshow and eveywhere else for suitable rib that fitted my needs in size etc , it just wasn't possible to find it in a rib .

Sorry

Oh I was expecting some coments likie that . hope we don't sink

In the size and power i wanted there simply wasn't enough space or storage on any ribs . that is 5.5m max 100 hp .
Shelter was also an issue , the family were only interested on sunny days as they just froze and moaned in anything but sunshine .
I wanted to sit side by side not in line as you do in smaller ribs on jockey seats .
The boat I have bought is a seamark 550 sc with a 90 etec .
I tried a demmo boat in the solent at the weekend with a 75 etec and was impressed with its performance , handling and dry ride , so hopefully the 90 will be even better .
It has a side consul with nice screen and small cuddy underneath , with enough room to store all the kit and get the kids changed out of the wind .

Hope it does what i think it will

You don't need to say sorry, we all bought boats to forfill our needs...

My friends have one of those rinker ski boat things and to be fair you are far more protected from the elements than most ribs. My wife really like it untill we followed it home in a force 5 following sea.... it was not pretty.
SO have fun in your new boat.....
Tony
