Hello From Beautiful British Columbia

Post by cedarsherrif » 06 Jun 2018, 19:53

Hello Everyone,

I have been following this forum from a distance for a few weeks now. I was so impressed with the information and experiences related with the FRIB that I purchased the 330. I will be using it as my tender for my Ranger Tug 29CB on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada.
I just picked it up and it is exactly as advertised. The fit and finish is impressive. First attempt: 7.5 minutes to deploy (with foot pump) and 6.5 minutes to deflate and pack up. My wife and I are like a Formula One Pit Crew, plus or minus a few terse commands.

Thank you to everyone who have been commenting on the FRIB. Your tales (tall and small) convinced me this was the right choice for me. Bruce should sponsor this site LOL.

Anyway, once I have any adventures worth posting I will keep you up to date.

Welcome aboard! West side of Canada...you have got to post some photos! Gorgeous country up there. Anxious to see what it's like out on the water in your area.
Wrote a note said, 'back in a minute'. Bought a boat and I sailed off in it.
