Wifey B: I like all water toys.
Well, all toys, period.
We don't have PWC's but we have lots of Ribs and Kayaks and Paddleboards and love them all. Sometimes when home and the mighty ocean is in an unfriendly mood, then we'll all go wild with all the above, cruising the canals and playing in the water. Also, recently, when our cruises have been mostly to nowhere, we'd take the paddleboards and kayaks out with us and a couple of Ribs and anchor somewhere and use them all.
We use our Ribs when cruising more than anyone else we know but they're great for exploring and getting close up looks. A simple example. Most Savannah visitors stop at the docks in the city. They act like that's the end of the road. The river doesn't stop there. So much beauty around the islands and on up the river.
Personal preference of Ribs over PVC's is riding in rather than on, not having to get wet, being able to use a top even. Just boating over cycling. Call us old, but better not to my face
, but we have young people with us and have even occasionally rented PVC's just to see and it's unanimous on Ribs over PVC's. The one PVC advantage is costs less to buy.
So yes to Ribs but don't forget canoes, kayaks, paddleboards and other ways of enjoying the water.
