What do you use your rib for?

Sorry if this has been asked, I did use the search tool but didn't come up with any clues. As a new member on here Im just trying to get a feel of what most people enjoy doing recreationally.

So as the tittle asks what do most people use their ribs for i.e. diving, fishing, or just cruising etc. I for one enjoy all the above but am heading into the water more these days trying to photograph many of the species I used to target on a rod and line.

Exploring the coast line, cruising, adventures, going to places only accessible by boat, diving, water sports (skiing and ringos), picnics, fishing, photography, Dolphin & Whale watching.

Pretty much everything apart from sailing

(oh, and global warming, considering the fuel it uses)

I use mine for the odd dive, family cruising/messing about, really amateur fishing etc. It is also great for storing all my spare cash as shiney bits and putting off decorating.

Fishing and sight-seeing. Can't beat flotsam and jetsam washed up on isolated beaches and coves. That's where my salvaged ropes, creels, and buoys come from. A veritable treasure trove awaits.

As a patrolling rescue boat on York's river Ouse after a series of deaths last year.

We're certainly building up a team of volunteers, I'll give you a shout when we've next got a meeting if you fancy?

I was at Maritime Rescue International in Stonehaven for 9 years. I rib up the Ouse on a nice day. I live in Leeds but may be able to assist. Let me know when you're meeting.
