Hi Michael

This was mid -summer in the Moray Firth (North Scotland)!!

Only joking, it was October, which is Autumn. The temperature was just above freezing. It was only the 3rd time I had ever used the boat (or any boat come to that). A short while after this we saw the Dolphins (see Dolphins post in RibGallery). The sea was quite choppy and we got WET. But it was FUN and seeing the Dolphins very close up was amazing.

Next time we were up in Scotland and out on the boat was February and it was EVEN COLDER! By then my daughter was in her full diving drysuit and I had purchased a special drysuit too.

In July I went out and it was sunny and calm. It was even warm enough not to have to wear gloves!

Hi Keith,

It sound s amazing to rib in such conditions. At least to me. During the mentioned period of the year, most of ribsters watch TV, or drink like a sponge. And I don't mean strictly ribsters, yachtsmen generally. Speaking seriously now I suppose that these conditions pump your adrenaline up. Make your cheeks redden. I think that I have to give it a try. As soon as the temp goes down I 'll give a call to some friends to go F-ribbing. (F stands for freezing).

Michael
