Owning 2 boats or more?

So what are the pros and cons of this, I mean I know quite a few of us do it but is it all really worth it?

I suspect you'll find it's pointless when it's a 2 hour tow to the sea and you'll only ever use one of them.

2 different boats sure, why not ?

If you have 2 ribs then no. Keep one and sell the other to replace it with something different, be it speed, cruise, weekender etc.

Unfortunately I'm on the south east coast and there is no such thing as dry stack down here, you even struggle to find a decent slipway!

A RIB and a SIB. It's the way forward. The SIB absolutely has to fit in the boot, including outboard. And you absolutely have to be wishing for the RIB if you're out on the SIB. And the reason for not taking the RIB has to fully balance if not outweigh the enjoyment got from the SIB.
