Yippee!!!!!

Finally after months of searching, dithering and getting very dissolutioned found a Ribeye, deposit paid collect in a week or so so am now a proper RIBnobber

Very excited but also little anxious, engine was stolen (considering new Etec 90hp) also need to fit Charplotter, DSC etc so will be posting regularly for help and advise over the coming weeks

Cant wait to meet up with some of you guys on the water

Looks really nice, well done. If you need an engine there are a couple of really helpful trade members on here that will sell you a brand new or secondhand outboard.

When its cleaned up and had all the kit fitted confident it will look like new Chris, its 2010 vintage but hasnt been used for a couple years (long story!)

Definetely looking for engine, like I said thinking new Etec but would consider good second hand from reputable dealer so hopefully the traders will be along shortly

Nice boat. Really like these Ribeyes with proper rear seats.

Engine choice - keep us posted.

It'll be nice to see a Ribeye without a 4 stroke Yam on it

except it has a powered by Yamaha logo on it! i would stick to something bombproof to power it. the hulls and fitments are pretty good i hear so would be a shame to ruin it!!
