Moving up to a rib will be a big jump for me and I'm going to be on a steep learning curve for a while yet.
Would it be possible to launch a 4.7m off the beach ?
Non of the beaches around here mate with out a tractor. Ainsdale boat club launch off the beach with tractors, I think it's about £100 a year to join.
There's a club at the end of John Lennon Airport that has a slip, I'll find the details if you want. I think that's about £110 a year.
You do need a slipway to launch a RIB mate, (around this coast line anyway). That's why I'd like a SIB as well. Was going to get one instead of but couldn't let the RIB go.
I'm putting my boat on a mooring at Douglas marine on the river douglas/River ribble.
