Sorry Jean I cant see the Osprey I was thinking of on there now however if you fancy a project then this looks interesting.

Get it for 7-8k and you could easily afford a bit of a refit to suit your needs.

Hi Jean,
Sorry to hear about your health issues. Good luck with that.
That Osprey is here also.....

A BIN of 7500 makes it interesting. A little bit of haggling might do the trick to bring him down even further.
I sadly will not be back for the Pembrokeshire run. Just make sure you have a blast over to The Old Point House at Angle.

Hi Jean,

Hopefully your health issues will be resolved over the season. On the bright side, it's a good time of the year to sell a rib. I'd do as suggested and keep the fancy bits you bought. You'd sell them on here for more, even if you don't use them yourself.

It seems to be a recurring theme - people leaving ribbing for health reasons. I'm not sure is it ribs, our age profile or just stats that are to blame. I've had some use of Sonar's geckos, and I feel guilty every time I wear one.

If you get a chance over the summer (shows etc.) have a look at ScotSeats shock mitigation seats - they're expensive but one for your next helm position might be worth thinking about - they make a huge difference to the ribbing experience.

All the best!

willk (& crew )

Agreed although I would love to wack a pair of 150 E-tecs on the back of that and clean it up

The Ribtec was on Ebay a short while ago...but never made reserve. Was very nearly tempted to bid!
