RIB: Total Cost of Ownership
This may sound like an adventurous or ridiculous idea or line of questions, but here I go:
RIB's are quite expensive. Is there a way to lower the total cost, or rather recoup the cost of buying a RIB by renting it out, or loaning it to training centers, charter companies and the like?
I know some people manage to do that with sail boats - I was wondering/hoping there is a similar option for a RIB.
Alternatively is there any way to monetise the ownership of a RIB without having to be a commercial skipper.
I've no desire to make a career from it, just to bring down the cost of buying a boat.
