I may be in the minority here, but I'd love to see more cabin RIBS available for tuition/charter!

I guess the cost may not make this practical, but maybe there could be a benefit if it expands your season?

I did my intermediate last October and to say that was cold would be an understatement (to be fair it was a particularly freakishly cold couple of days)!

What about something like a Stormforce 6.5 with wrap around canopy?

I assume you have seen the recent thread on possible requirements for advanced teaching boats.

Ha , Yep very true !

Slightly too big for that , after something slightly smaller that may do the job as a training rib.
Open to suggestions !

We have a humber 5.7 ocean pro for sale built to a commercial spec and would tick all the boxes for advance rya corses (I think). Given the new rules, I think this would be the minimum size you will get away with but it realy depends on your budget and what you need to get out of it.

After trying a few differnet RIBs over the years, we now operate a Coded Humber 7.5m with Honda 250hp as our main teaching boat and feel it makes an ideal teaching platform. I feel that anything below 7m is to small for Intermediate & Advanced courses, especially when it gets choppy. Above 8m and it becomes difficult to manouve in confined spaces.

A Delta is always a good choice.
