With a RIB you don't need to spend, however much that is, to have more fun than two Ford Escorts !!!

A few things always come up time and time again, the great ride, comfy, the build and the stainless work!!

I have to confess Jon that when I was there with the family we too just stood and watched ... Lovely looking craft. And you're quite right there is some serious stainless steel on Mickie Bee Dee.

Interesting to read your comments above .. next time the wife is on about a new car I have my excuse lined up.

"Sorry dear, but for the price of your car I can get half the powerplant on the back of that nice yellow rib we saw at the boat show"

Really nice looking boat Jon - you have every reason to be a proud owner.

Old thread I know...

But did you ever find this? It's EXACTLY what I want.

Thanks!
