A couple of 6.8m-7m ribs did this in September ,Have a read of their story/Blog, one Ribnet member was

"SIRIB"

The link below should be day 1

Take Two Ribs

you will have to scroll to the bottom of the sreen to "Older posts" to start from the beginning.

Well worth the read , and will give you a good Idea of what you would be up against.

I think "DEEP POCKETS" will be required

Good Luck !

Alan.

BTW be great to see some pics of the Sea Fox restoration.
I have little rough weather experience, 4-5 foot waves in a bowrider and abit bigger in a 39ft rib. I am hoping to improve this during winter and hopefully take part in a trip to the scilly isles.

would it be ok to post a thread on the restoration on here? It's not a rib

If you need to borrow a rib then Mollers will lend you his. It will probably even have some fuel left in it as he doesn't normally use a whole tank over the summer unless the sun is out loads.

We're reasonably open minded...

...obviously some people may point and laugh - but they will keep it reasonably polite.

It comes with a guarantee that if they break the RIBnet posting guidelines* that posts will be removed when the admin team get round to it... and repeat offenders will be dealt with**



* purely in the view of the admin team
** in extreme cases Garfish or Wilfish may be commissioned to educate the offender in the ways of ribnet.
