Hello

Hello,

Just registered after buying my first Rib

Been stalking the forum for a few weeks whilst on the look out.

I am retired from my motorcycle (for the moment) and also a keen diver so thought I could get something that could help with that and take the family out cruising at other times.

My Rib is a 4.7m Avon Searider with a double jockey console so looking at options to perhaps add a rack for the tanks, but not sure how or even if this is possible

Any way thanks for listening

Welcome to Ribnet Mark. I'm sure the dive boys will be along shortly to advise you and share location s etc
I hope you have many safe hours with her. Where is your preferred location for diving?

Welcome aboard mark! I've got a 5.9 meter Highfield used extensively for diving (and family outings!).

With the dual use I didn't do any tank racks. Since we dive doubles with liberal number of stage bottles I have found laying the doubles out around the deck and stacking stage bottles horizontal around narrow areas worked well.
