Ribcraft 5.85 - cheeky request

Are there any Ribcraft 5.85 owners in the Solent area who would be willing for me to tag along for a trip out so I can do a little research? Obviously fuel and bar refreshments would be provided .

Daniel.....I try to get out on mine at least once a week over the winter months.
Weather dependant of course.
Usually during the week.
Weather doesn't look great over the next few days (I know that doesn't put you off but I don't like getting wet)
I will post a message here if I am going out.
You are welcome to hitch a ride.

Robin

Daniel have you spoken to Ribcraft it's about this time of year (just after SIBS) they do/did a test day out at Portland worth a call to them. We had a go on one couple of years back there. Would have loved one but out side our budget. Not the same as whole day out but a good start.

Hi Neal, Unfortunately I missed the Portland weekend due to the Weymouth cruise. If I hadn't been so knackered after getting to Weymouth I would have tried to get over to Portland.
