A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine's brother bought a Maxum (yeh, I know it's not a rib - he will be converted by next season) and asked me if I would assist him with the finer points of berthing, I'm no expert but decided to give him a few pointers. We stood on the pontoon surveying his new pride and joy. I asked him to hand over his wallet, his wife watched on with utter bemusement, and I pretended to chuck it in the water. I explained that he might as well not delay the inevitable........?!
