Nice.

Try a Ribcraft 585, you should find a slightly older one within budget.

I've looked at the ribcraft, the only thing that puts me off is the seating layout. Would prefer bench to jockey seats if possible. Hence Im keen on the Ribeye playtime series.

Mollers - Being a resident of the mighty 'ryn yourself may I ask where you store and launch?

Cheers

I live in the Capital (Truro) but always launch at Mylor. Launching is free and parking 8 all day for the car and trailer. Its good about an hour each side of low water but it does get busy.

Best slip to Launch in Fal is beside Trago but it is expensive by the time you have paid over 15 to Launch and park the trailer. Doesn't inc car parking so you need to find parking elsewhere for that too.

Mark.

Welcome to RIBnet

After you've been here a while you'll tune in! It's an excellent site for advice and information. Opinions too, though initially you might find some of them more difficult to understand than others

There's banter shared about the relative ability or appearance of the various RIB brands. Each has their own favourites and some folks opinions are stronger than others. Rest assured, it's only light hearted banter

If you'd like to look at/ride in a Ribcraft 5.3 (three jockey seats) drop me a Private Message (PM). We'll be based in Mylor 22nd July to 10th August

Worry not Leapy, I took no offence! I was more interested in the pros and cons of the Ribeye. All advice much appreciated. You'll have to try a bit harder to get me to bite!! So any reason you would stay clear of the Ribeye?

Mark - thanks for the advice. Home storage isn't an option for me at the moment so I'm exploring storage options. Mylor seems a good candidate if a little pricey. HM has put me on to Trevissome house as an option. Any experience?

I have also been offered the possibility of a swinging mooring on the river. Is this a bad idea with a RIB in terms of maintenance and keeping it in good nick?

Cheers again

I keep mine at a friends place near Longdowns, Its a hassle and I want to move it nearer home really. There is a boat storage place on the road from Longdowns to Stithians too but I don't know much about it. Whats the rates at Mylor? I did look about 5 years ago and it was $$$ then. Basically if it is convienient you gotta pay for it.

I guess how often you want to use it, what you tow with and how happy you are towing has a bearing on storage location too.

Got any more details on the slip at Trevissome? I didn't know there was a slip down there.

Oh yeah, Ribeye....errrr....um. They are very pretty.
