As Nasher said as you get bigger ...

7.5m RIB - servicing was about 500 a year, mid river mooring was 800 ( and that was cheap) , insurance 350 , and I never even worked out petrol - but 7 just to get the mile and a bit from the mooring to the sea ( and 7 back ! ) . LIft and store for winter another 500 ( winterise , de winterise etc etc ) ....

The Caravan park from Nasher sounds like good value. Can you share the details, or is it a secret?

I am new to ribbing this year, and have found the launching / recovery easier than I feared. The towing is not too bad either, but I live around 100 miles from the sea, and the car uses a lot of fuel on the way! It normally does 40 mpg , but this is slugged to about 26 when towing my 5.6m rib. So a caravan park not too far from the sea sounds good.....
