HEY

It seems Ribquest is conquering the UK!!! I am convinced it is a great rib: crossed last weekend from Nieuwpoort in Belgium to Ramsgate in a lumpy sea caused by the NE winds. Stayed overnight in Ramsgate and to Dover back again to Calais and Dunkerque and Nieuwpoort again in some very lumpy seas again NNE winds and blowing force 5 or 6. Lots of fun but had to work tough because wind over tide. The Ribquest had no problem at all with coping the seas!!!!! I was exhausted after a 6 hours drive

To tell u the truth in a way yes this crossing was worse because it took so long and the waves we encountered were steep and coming very quickly after eachother. Mr T would have loved it, Mrs T on the contrary????

but i think we are off topic, are we not???

will post some pics and maybe a vid as well (not of the rough though because i don't have a fixed mounted camera, yet)

It's a great boat. I love mine. Great afternoon on Saturday last. Whitby to Hartlepool, with a short stop at Runswick Bay.
