New to forum from Norfolk UK

Just to say hello as I am new to the forum.
Plan to have my own rib soonish (wife permitting) so be prepared for many questions.

Hi Blakey, welcome to the forum

this is the place to ask your questions, not too sure the answers are always what's expected, but it's usually entertaining if nothing else

Hi,
I used to dive off Weybourne beach, local club had their own rib. Haven't dived in years now. Just can't find the time plus all my gear has either been sold or is not usable
You mention the Alde/Ore, are there many good slipways around there ? Where do you launch your rib ?

Thanks in advance for this sort of information. This only intensifies the grief I will give my missus to let me spend some money on a boat

Blakey

Have you thought of launching from Morston, Blakeney or Wells?
