Hello from East Yorkshire

Hi All,

Just joined the forum, unfortunately at present I am 'ribless' as I have never owned one before and I'm looking to buy hopefully within the year.
I have been looking at the TakaCat ribs for portability and storage so if anyone owns one I would love to hear their views.
My on water exploits over the last 10 years has been from my kayak, principally for fishing on fresh and saltwater but the other half has expressed an interest in joining me on some trips so hence looking at a rib.

Cheers all,

Kev.

Hi kev

Welcome, takakat were evaluated in power boat and rib magazine not long back it got a fairly good review as I recall. You could look at a sib namely an aerotec for portability.

Cheers Jeff

Thanks Jeff,

Yes Takacat seem to be getting good reviews at the mo', it's the open deck space for fishing that's attracting me to the XLite at the moment but I'm keeping my options open.

Kev.

The progression from kayak to inflateable isn't that big in my opinion to use what you have learned in the kayak will make it easy, I take it it's the catamaran you're after rather than the sib both would do but I think the catamaran would be great for fishing a little expensive for what they are though do have a look at the aerotec a more serious boat I've just been out with one on the Scottish sib outing very impressed with its performance when it gets a bit rough.
