ribs in yarmouth

Mrs Zippy and i spend the weekend on the on the isle of wight this weekend and whilst having a spot of lunch in yarmouth before the ferry there were plenty of ribs in and out of yarmouth.

Nice Goldfish 36 (think it lives in Cowes) few nice scorpions and couple of ribcrafts i have a feeling i recognised the name of one as a forum member but couldn't be sure!

Well the long and short is i think its been an expensive weekend as we now know for sure we need another rib in our lives!!!

Good looking boat that. I recognise the guy in pic 5 or the first post from the wheatsheaf. (Sorry don't know who you are!!)

Saw the Waverley round the back of the island also, happy days boating! Next season for us maybe!!
