The boat didn't make the reserve in the auction - no surprise really as it's a pretty specialist kind of thing and Hobbs Parker usually sell cars!!

It has since been sold privately, through ribnet.

I am sure the proud new owner will introduce him self in due course.

In the mean time I'm busily fitting new brake shoes to the trailer (all 4 sets) and my upholsterer is making a rather sexy sun pad to match the bow cushion (to the new owners deign).

I'm going to miss this one... Next project !!Click image for larger version

RIB refurb

The bow cushion was 80.

The sunpads (it's in two halves) 140 each / 280 total.

Both held on with pop-studs. The boat half is just a short self tapper on a studd.

Rib Refurb....

Daniel - firstly a massive thanks for all that you have done to help, its really appreciated and Ill try and look after it, and you know where it is if you want to get out on the south coast anytime!

.......So, I'm the new owner, upgrading from a Zodiac pro 550 with a Honda 90 to a Ballistic 7.2 with a 250; I was looking for a 6.5m with a 150 but got drawn in

Its going to be a massive change, and its really completely out my league, and I think its going to be sometime before I get used to the size of it. It dwarfs the car, and I know nothing of 2 strokes...

May years ago now I came out on a couple of rib net trips in the solent, and it completely opened my eyes to other side of ribbing outside of my bay hoping experiences on the zodiac in Devon. I was actually on Chris's boat which back then was a small osprey (I think) and we whizzed around the IOW, and I was blown away by it, and from that time I new the zodiac was not what I needed, but could not afford to change it.


I'm on for doing plenty of cruises, so hopefully be able to join some of you guys after what has been a good few years, and this time around I wont be the at the back holding on to my leisure seat; although I will be watching the fuel gauge very differently!

Hoping to get out for a maiden voyage in a few weekend time....
