Greetings From Edinburgh!

Hello All!

Redundancy earlier this year sees me looking for things to do, so I'm off to do my PB2 in a couple of weeks, followed by buying a RIB at the wrong end of the season!

Looking at something 6-7m with 100+HP, though not looking for simple outright speed. Seeing one this weekend and will give updates on how the search progresses.

Cheers,
J

Thankyou, seems like a mostly friendly place...
Will be back for lots of advice I'm sure. There's definitely a wealth of experience here, though it is a little South coast biased - obviously!
