New USA member (Maybe?)

Met a nice guy at the Bay today who had been checking out the Ribnet site.
He had a 6m Zodiac hurricane which he had "stolen" from a friend at a great price. Lets just say his whole rig as seen cost less than my engine How come I am never lucky enough to drop on deals like this
So come on "C", I know you are checking out the site, so join up and swell the ranks of Ribsters here in San Diego. (need some help when all the Brits gang up on me
Great day for cruising , with blue skys and in the 70's. Eat your hearts out you soggy Romsey crew
Had to throw in a photo of the Sealions .Ok so I am obsessed
cheers Dal

Do the sealions get stopped as much as you??? I bet they don't - I call that discrimination - they could easily be Al Queda SEALS.....

Nice photos lime. Is that the "Eisenhour" in the back ground??..
Those sealions sure look fat- i thought they were those things you put betwen your boat and a mooring post ( what's the name??)
Any sharks in the waters??

'tis us...the soggy Romsey crew!

Hi Darrall

great shots!! Glad to hear you have RIB company! the sealion on the top bunk (so to speak) looks pretty uncomfortable....and how did he get there!?

So you've heard...we've had the odd drop of rain....but it really has been very warm (hotter than Turkey one day last week!!) so stop boasting!!!

Not to miss out on those marine life photography sessions we're visiting you next year, after Arizona, so get the RIB all polished up and put the kettle on! Mind you, that's if we're allowed in...we still have our "I 94" green forms from september so strictly speaking your Department of Homeland Security think we're still there. Mmmm!! That makes us illegal immigrants from December!

Ju 'n Mike

Just a thought limey, but those sea lions are the favourite dish of my favourite fish, The Great White. I know they are around san diego, aren't they? Any chance of some pics of one of those nibbling on your tubes!

That is a sweet looking rib. The seals must be trying to avoid the red tide we've been having. It makes them go crazy. My sinuses are plugged from surfing in the red tide, ungh...

Also carrier in the background is the Midway, which is now a floating museum.
