Ah yes, Suffolk Yacht Harbour - I first saw my RIB there! (and then promptly fell off the end of the slipway )

There's quite a few RIBnet members launch there too. If you fancy cruising in company, then post in the cruising section and you'll probably get a cruise together. 'specially if you're a collection of guitarists from U2!

Since I have given up my berth at Woolverstone you may see me there.

Noticed you on Saturday prior to launch -we were the three blokes chewing the cud about a broken mast foot on a sailing boat which my friends had towed down from Lincoln with my silver Shogun

Well I still use the pulley if it's really low water but only to launch not recover.Why is that?

Welll quite apart from Richard B going over, there a tale (urban myth?) about a Range Rover slipping over the edge on the green stuff at the bottom.

Got the rollers caught upside down on recovery when last there. Guy in a disco took pity hitched me up dumped the rib back in and pulled me back up in 1 minute. fantastic.... very helpful. No wheel spin low ratio over green stuff

You regular guys to suffolk yacht harbour

You have persuaded me we are on our way. can you say where we can fuel both on land and once the RIB is afloat?

that way we have all options covered.

Paul
