Tender user

Hi all,

We use our RIB as a tender to a bigger boat and I've joined here because I'm looking for a replacement RIB - I posted about this in the Wanted forum.

We have up to now cruised the English and Welsh coasts from Lowestoft to Skomer Island, across to Ireland, and in the Channel Islands. Currently berthed in Plymouth Sutton Harbour.

The RIB is mainly a ferry, but occasionally I take it offshore for a thrash, just to blow the cobwebs off the engine you know.

Michael

You were right, I did!
But hard to find new RIBs at the moment.
The one we bought will be good for us if everything turns out OK.
By which I mean, if it lifts OK and fits on the boat deck.
At the moment I am working from the weight information given on the original purchase details. But I have bought an inexpensive crane scale to check because now I've got it in front of me at home I'm suspicious the weight is under-declared.
