New Subscriber ..... Saying hello

Hello ... Last summer I decided to sell my old boat with a view to buying a RIB and after much research I took delivery of a Ribeye S650 on Feb 19th this year ..... I discovered this site a few months ago and have been able to enjoy the wealth of information offered by fellow RIB owners which has proved invaluable in gaining much knowledge on the subject . For that I am grateful to all the members who post here .... With that in mind I have decided to introduce myself and hopefully will join in the many discussions .

It's pretty much 'anything goes' downstream of the Carew/Cresswell tributaries at Lawrenny. Above this there's a 'dead slow, minimum wash' restriction, but someone told me the marker buoys hadn't been put back as at last weekend.

Handy guide here:

Hey Gossy,

Welcome!....Newport Pembs is one of our regular launch sites.....narrow tidal window, and narrow channel, but they will have put the Lat markers back in by the time you get down. Beautiful coastline too (although i'm very biased)....not sure if you know the area, but there are some nice galleries on our website as a taster if not....

Let us know when you are coming down, might meet you out on the water!

Dan
