If so can i ask you where you launch from,
how often do you go out is there any clubs in the area,
What do you use your rib for ie fun diving etc.
Hello Norman, when the old tub is working I launch my RIB from, Whitby, South Shields, Beadnell, Seahouses and the beach at Dunbar.
I have taken it further afield such as Mull but South Shields is my local stomping ground.
I am toying with the idea of putting it in a marina for the summer months next year.
I mainly go diving but I have been known for days out with the missus and daughter on the farnes photographing puffins, (not often enough though).
Where do you launch from?
