No Problem David . - Glad to be of service .
We in Lough Ree Power Boat School train quitae a few beginners before they buy their first boat . We operate a free consultancy service to such training clients - i.e. we will keep in touch with your bulider and advise you both as to the features which we consider you need or do not need on your boat given what you want to use it for .
This advice can range from choice of Electronics down to some thing as simple as positioning of u bolts , anchor locker design , grab handles , drain bungs etc .
I would be delighted to offer this free service to you . If interested just give me a buzz ( mobile is normally the fasted way to reach me .
On the Instructor front , given that we are the leading trainers of Professional RIBsters in Ireland our Instructor panel are all from a Military , Professional or Rescue background and are generally Advanced PBIs or Trainers . You would be more than welcome to join a SB course . Just let me know when you are over .email firstname.lastname@example.org
Best wishes ,
