Noob advice

After much lurking I've finally taken the plunge and bought our first RIB it's a Humber Assault from evil bay.
Any advice and thoughts on this for a first family boat gratefully received.

My advice is to make sure everything works, get the motor serviced, buy some safety gear and a VHF then get out and enjoy yourself. Welcome aboard!

There are quite a few of us that launch from Chris's at Ty Calch Caernarfon, and the best bit is you do not need to register with the council and Chris charges 16 for tractor launch and recovery.
