Eminently towable (with a decent Trailer) Great in the Rough stuff!..and with Ribcrafts Bullet proof build... a real Task Master RIB!
Easily Coded too.
Best of Luck with Her!

Cheers. Trailer will be good once sorted. It's just hasn't been loved. Usually one man launch so can't afford any hassle. Getting re-coded over next month should be ok😬 Electronic setup far more complex than previous and that's the biggest challenge at the moment.

Hi Tony. I wish I was but it's highly unlikely. Just got boat Monday and had to put her on a mooring to sort trailer. That and supposed to be heading offshore end of next week makes it very unlikely. If there's a glimmer of a possibility to come I'll be there with ribcraft bells on. Was hoping to meet you and Ian whom I spoke to recently. I'll be over Easdale before year is out. Hope you have a great event and good weather whatever happens ✊🏻
