As far as I know there is no single list, but a trawl through an up to dat almanac would come up with most of them (and phone numbers to check the details!).

I'm sure that Geoff would include the information on the boatlaunch site, alternatively I'm quite happy to find somewhere on RIBnet for it.

Anyway, lets start by collecting the information and then decide what to do with it . . .

Here's a few off the top of my head:

Yarmouth, Isle of Wight
Holyhead Marina, Anglesea (needs confirming)
Brighton Marina, Sussex
Oban, West Scotland (at Puffin Divers)
Falmouth, Cornwall

On the East Coast........

Suffolk yacht Harbour, Levington nr felixstowe, unleaded about 1.10 per litre!!!! Also Bradwell Marina on the River Blackwater, not sure of the price but cheaper. Ramsgate now has petrol at the fuel barge there.

Nb Cheapest diesel in the UK? Scrabster Fishdocks in North Scotland ... 11p a litre!!

Come on out Mr. Bear

OK Mr. Bear, what's the big mystery.

So far you are going to get a RIB over 7.5 m which may be fitted with a single diesel.
However, you are going to fill it up all round the UK with unleaded petrol.
It may or may not have a aux. engine which may or may not be diesel.
Your Profile doesn't give much away either does it?

Why don't you tell us who you actually are, and what you are up to?
Maybe then we can REALLY help you.

PS You haven't got a girlfriend called Goldilocks have you?

As a friend of Bear Grylls, I thought I'd add my comments:

I'm not sure why people think something exciting is going on. I think we're just hoping to learn someting. We share the same interest and we are both looking at buying new boats. I am looking for a 5.5m with a 90hp 4 stroke (ideally Ribeye Playtime) although I know Bear is looking for something a bit bigger for more offshore use.

The purpose of these forums is to be able access the vast amount of experience/knowledge which you guys seem to have and I find it really useful reading about peoples experiences with RIBs even though not all the topics relate to me.

I have just got rid of a financially crippling 17ft Fletcher ski boat which I kept in Poole and hope to buy a RIB early Spring.

Anyway, back to the point of the thread, you can buy petrol form the fuel barge in Poole along with Saltners Mariner although it's about 1.10 per litre!

Anyone who has any advice on 5.5m RIBs especially Ribeye, I would be grateful. They've just started making them from PVC under 6m not sure if that puts me off!

Nigel
