At last - no longer a Ribnet Virgin!!

Possibly not the best title for a 41 year old girlie whose just bought her first proper RIB but what the heck

After everybodies help and advice I have finally purchased a RIB that seems perfect.

She is a Avon Searider 5.4M RIB with 75HP Yamaha Pro 2 stroke, with power tilt and trim,
2/3 man console with screen and lifting seat providing a lockable storage compartment plus
Lockable Anchor Locker/Storage with Anchor, chain and warp.

Tubes are in good non painted condition, no patches and seem to hold air well.

We saw her on eBay, popped down and had a look and collect her on Saturday after a run out to check the engine is sound.









All that remains for me to say is THANK YOU to you all for all the help and advice - really appreciated

Will let you know how Saturday goes

Jean
