Utility Belt for Rib

It is always fun finding places to keep your wallet, Phone, Radio etc on the rib. I have just bought this for the princely sum of £6.99. I am sure the Rib Kings PD and WK will advise that the zips will rust in 30 seconds and the fabric will instantly disintegrate but I think it will be useful.

Just sharing the idea so that others might benefit

No a problem for me ....
wallet in a pocket, same with non-boat keys.
Radio / PLB clipped to LJ
Phone and anything else in waterproof case in cockpit tidy on rear of console.

"Belt order" pouches are bulky, and wouldn't allow me to stand / sit comfortably against the seat backrests (IMHO)

Will be interested how you get on with with it

Even if you don't wear it, I guess you could clip it onto something just as handy storage (with a secondary security clip if its got all your valuables).

Yes the clip will certainly get some attention although these spring plastic Jobs do see to be quite strong

No, I take a Medium Utility Belt, so I expect you outdid me

And the RIB is very modest as Redbays go - you really shouldn't get so exercised....
