RIB charter on the East Coast

Can anyone suggest anywhere on the East coast (ideally Essex, Suffolk at a push) that offers RIB charters (bareboat)?

I'm not looking for anything particularly flash, but as I am now RIBless, it would be good to have the odd day out at a reasonable cost!

I've done up to and including the RYA intermediate course and would be with at least one other guy with PB2, so hopefully there will be a school out there somewhere, there seem to be plenty in the Solent!

Nothing? No-one knows any RYA schools that charter at all on the East Coast? :-(

There's not many places anywhere in the UK. The solent and nearby lend themselves to it by being categorised waters, having a large population and support infrastructure. There are many reasons why schools will be reluctant to rent their boats bareboat.

Yes that's a fair point actually, I guess the coding is easier in the Solent! That said I'd hoped there would be some at least that would charter if you booked a course with them...I still have Advanced Powerboat to do to any schools reading this ;-)
