A friend of mine who is also a member of this forum introduced me to RIBS last year in Weymouth he has a 6.5m Ring with a Honda 130 4 stroke and was good enough to lend me it for two weeks in the summer, we had it moored in Freshwater St Mawes. This really got me and wife well and truly hooked... surely friends don't do that sort of thing??
Anyway we decided to take the plunge and buy our own boat and picked it up from Rock Marine two weeks ago, we have both done our RYA Level 2 but were still very nervous about towing, launching and recovering as this was only covered in the classroom. So for our first launch on our own we chose and nice big slip with good road access down at Mylor. All went really well it was much easier than I thought it would be, and we have launched down there again last Sunday. I know launching and recovering don't get much easier than it is at Mylor but I live near Mevagissey and it's a bit of a drag getting there. I was curious to know what the slip at Par Docks is like, the boat is a 6.0m Ribeye and my reversing isn't that sharp! Can you pay as you dunk or do you have to be a member of any club?
If anyone has any information, or anything you wish you knew when you got your first boat, would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
