Hi from FolegandrosGreece, Greece

Thanks for accepting me on Ribnet. I spend half my time in UK and half here in Greece. I'm relatively new to the rib world, having bought my Ribeye last year. I keep my boat in Greece and use it mainly for cruising round the island, trips to other nearby islands, pulling my son and his girlfriend on wakeboards and a bit of fishing. Although not tidal, the Aegean can be quite challenging, with frequent high winds and unpredictable wave patterns. I have the RYA level 2, which gives me an international licence. In Greece, it is mandatory to have a valid licence for a boat over 4 metres and an engine over 20hp.
