As the others have said there is plenty of good advice on here from 'grumpy' old men to the not so grumpy. Me well there is alot of good ribs your spoiled for choice depends what you want to do and where you want to do it!! All I can say is that I do most of all my ribbing on the west of scotland and I cannot praise my Ribcraft 585 high enough but I know it is not the only one. Best carry on and do what the 'Big' man says ask some general questions and see what comes back.
What ever you choose I wish you well and many happy days on the water.
