You are right when I first started playing golf I had a set from Argos, now I don't and I'm still crap.
When I retired from playing rugby, I thought that I would give golf a go as did some of my mates.....

Well its a feckin hard game to learn and it ain't cheap so I jacked that in and bought a rib, the first two were a disaster (long story) Chinese and Egyptian Sh*te... but eventually I got one I liked... it still ain't cheap but more fun... and the only swing I need to improve on is casting my fishing line see you on the Straits

Thanks for all your comments mostly useful.

Now going to ring around insurers which was my original question .....not "what do you think of my boat."

Any insurance only responses would be good.....does fast ribbing addle the grey matter cos in some parts it appears so....?

Convert? But they're perfect as they are!

What with the sandpits and the ponds and the beer stall at the end, they'd be ideal for 4x4 trials too...


"Golf? Balls!" You're saying it wrong...

I use CraftInsure (online), as do several others on here - is very easy and flexible. Prices seem reasonable, but I've never had to claim. Pretty sure there was someone on here who did claim with them, and it was dealt with properly.

Of course I have done my research after taking the RYA PB 2 course and got down to a rib eye and a Brig. I didn't like the way the tubes on the ribeye sit out of the water when stationary which gave a rockier ride at anchor so went with the brig.

The Russian roulette comment was in relation to the comment about them going bust.....which they don't appear to be.

I asked for assistance with insurance and any other advice stating I have bought a Brig.... Why would I ask what you think when I have acquired it already?.

Happy boating ....
Little tip...

Instead of putting the title on of "Newbie with a Brig" you could have put "Insurance for my new RIB" and people might have got stuck in with insurance tips...

The one tip you got was Tower. No reason to say they aren't good. BUT I think there was a suggestion here a couple of weeks ago that they and N&G were mandating Kill Cord Use. While thats no bad thing as a concept you need to check what happens if you did forget the KC for a split second and something went wrong... are you insured for third party liability at least? What about damage to your boat?

Did you speak to Slava Rodionov in Ukraine or someone from Brig in the UK? Not sure I'd be keen on buying a RIB from a country that is currently in the middle of a war - although I don't actually know why as once the boat is with you there probably isn't any difference... And I assume you aren't handing over the serious money till you can see the boat is here with no bullet holes in it...

Actually, your original post said you were "looking for tips and any insurance recommendations".

For what it's worth, I looked at the Brig Eagles before buying my current RIB. Had Brig made a 420-450 Eagle I would probably have bought one, though I'm kind of glad they didn't as I really like my Generation 430. Some of the 'serious' ribbers on here gave me stick at the time, but it suits my 'strictly for leisure' needs and the chances are the Brig will suit yours.

I'd still check the transom regularly though
