It was a sad evening, 10 years ago, when we got a call from the marina where our classic SR4 was stored to say that they'd been hit by thieves and our rib was no longer sitting in her spot... sadly never recovered and never replaced... until now!
Earlier this year a colleague at work was looking into getting a rib for his place in Devon and the inevitable happened - helping him out online and tracking down good deals got me totally hooked again and a few months later I found myself rolling down the M3 with Ribtecer's beautifully maintained Solent 540 on the back of my car!
We've spent some great days out so far since picking her up at the end of August:
-Burnham-on-Crouch for 2 days
-Ipswich Yacht Harbour and up the Deben for 2 days
-2 day trips in the Solent, one just last Saturday
Planning on a lot more next year and hopefully see a few of you at a Ribnet cruise or two! Great forum you've got here - made a massive difference in choosing a boat and doing research.
