There’s not much Darryl Hitchen hasn’t tried in boat fishing, but an opportunity to test out a Rigid-hulled Inflatable Boat was a real eye-opener for the old sea dog.
WHEN Scotty Coghlan rang me asking if I could get a boat review done and have the copy to him by the following weekend, I thought he was pulling my leg. I was further convinced he was joking when we went on to explain that the test boat would be a Rigid-hulled Inflatable Boat (or RIB). I politely reminded him that the Western Angler was in fact a fishing magazine and hence I should be reviewing a boat suitable for fishing and not something more at home as a tender to a luxury yacht or rescue vessel!
