Cruising & Crewing
I have taken the plunge, and having looked at all options have gone for a rib share scheme where I get use one week in four, which actually suits my work pattern really well and means I have no hassle, fixed costs and use of a RIB I couldn't possibly afford to buy.
I was wondering a couple of things. I will be based in Gosport and with my old RIB always enjoyed going out with others for a cruise - Cowes for Lunch, day out to Poole, the odd trip to Cherbourg maybe or just a blast around the forts for fun - happy to do just about any trip.
Also, I may struggle to find a crew occasionally, so if there is anyone on the forums who doesn't have a RIB but would like to crew for some days out get in touch. This is actually how I got into owning my own RIB many many years ago, crewed for a chap for a season before getting my own.
Anyway, exciting times - shakedown run next Wednesday, then a full day out on Saturday 19th August and my firs week proper starts at the end of the month.
If anyone is interested in getting a cruise together, or crewing, get in touch and we can see what can be arranged
