having spent a couple of years hankering after a RIB, i've just purchased a new (to me) toy, which i'm due to collect on Wednesday morning.
I've been trawling RIBnet for advice and guidance over the last few months and already know a couple of people in here, namely Jono Garton (who got me through my advanced commercial ticket) and Tony Barber (a friend with whom i do some work on the Quinquari)............not sure if this will count against me.........please try and keep an open mind :-)
I've bought an Ocean Rib, (circa '96 , retubed by Henshaws a couple of years ago) which measures 7m over the tubes (but i believe it is the 675 version - speaking with Winsor Bros, who have been really helpful!). I will post up some pics etc when i get it home.
I apologise in advance as I will probably be asking quite a few questions over the next few months especially in the commercial forum as I'm due a survey and, dependent on outcome, am thinking about going for cat 4 coding?!? Either way, looking forward to having some fun this summer.
On a sepaerate note, I am now looking to sell my dory and would like to post up some details on the for sale section (i know it isn't a RIB,but the engine /trailer etc may be of interest...........hope that's okay?)
Thanks in advance,
