Utility Belt for Rib

It is always fun finding places to keep your wallet, Phone, Radio etc on the rib. I have just bought this for the princely sum of £6.99. I am sure the Rib Kings PD and WK will advise that the zips will rust in 30 seconds and the fabric will instantly disintegrate but I think it will be useful.

Just sharing the idea so that others might benefit

No a problem for me ....
wallet in a pocket, same with non-boat keys.
Radio / PLB clipped to LJ
Phone and anything else in waterproof case in cockpit tidy on rear of console.

"Belt order" pouches are bulky, and wouldn't allow me to stand / sit comfortably against the seat backrests (IMHO)

Will be interested how you get on with with it

Even if you don't wear it, I guess you could clip it onto something just as handy storage (with a secondary security clip if its got all your valuables).

Yes the clip will certainly get some attention although these spring plastic Jobs do see to be quite strong

No, I take a Medium Utility Belt, so I expect you outdid me

And the RIB is very modest as Redbays go - you really shouldn't get so exercised....

Stepping off a boat with that thing looking like a marine... the locals will think you're invading!

Cheers mate! However, I'm still not sure that peeps will be impressed enough - I think I'll hire a drone "pilot" to take some footage of me going around in distant circles on a local lake.

Aye well! When you’re working in the North Atlantic rather than pottering about on the local river, it’s not the size of the “fleet” that matters, it’s the quality of the ship. Horses for courses.

What local River are you talking about.... Do you mean the North Sea

Good of you to come along and support your little chum Will..... He was indeed starting to struggle as usual

I'd agree with Lakelandterrier in that a belt would probably get in the way of sitting down or bracing against a backrest.

I've put a Henderson hatch in the side of the console with a little lined compartment behind it which contains a couple of USB connectors and a cigarette style socket for phones, handheld radio's etc. I'll probably put stuff in a little Overboard drybag if it needs extra waterproofness. It's not secure from a theft perspective but I'll only leave valuables in it when I'm on board.

Willk - nice RIB.

Have you got any pics of the Henderson Hatch compartment. Might be useful with an Idea I am thinking of

Modern boaters are getting soft. Back in the day when Garfish ruled the waves round here, real ribnobbers rode on the tube with a Bowie knife between their teeth.
