Think Charles has a much better deal fo us. Just hang on a second. Trust us.
Trust was never the question. I trust you, however I don't mind paying 128 pounds/night or even 250 pounds a night. Is a normal price to pay for a good hotel. However, I will wait nearer the time and we will see.

Have stayed at the Duke of Cornwall for the last couple of visits to Plymouth. Faded granduer but excellent value. You get a fabulous breakfast.

The bar closes around 1.00 am but you can drink all night via the night porter.

Evening meal is a la carte and has something for everybodies taste.

Highly reccomended by race officials and competitors alike.

UPDATE

Hello Everyone

A couple of things are falling into place in the organization of this week-end to meet all you ‘cyber ribsters’.
Marina
I have had a lengthy chat to Mr.Tony Saunders the harbourmaster for Mayflower Marina; he has been most helpful and will make every effort to accommodate all our ribs. Obviously, he would like to know precise numbers, lengths and whatever else is pertinent. It is important to start collating this information, so, please forward me your details. The other important consideration is the number of people trailing their ribs to Plymouth, and in turn launching at the slip next to the marina. He has offered to make arrangements for the safe storage of the trailers; again, numbers and lengths are important. I have negotiated a discounted rate and trust that everyone will be ‘helpful’ in providing me with their information.
Hotels
Brian Elliott has very kindly made the effort and driven down to Plymouth this morning to investigate accommodation for us. He has found a suitable hotel called the Invicta Hotel who I have telephoned this afternoon. It seems that this hotel will suit our requirements perfectly. Nice and clean, good room for our meet/slide show/dining. Lovely bar across the hall. Secure CCTV parking for 16 cars at rear. Betty and Roy Martin are the proprietors (Martin is keen on boats and engines, so will probably join us) and if you ring up and mention RIBNET they will know who you are and you will receive the discounted rate already negotiated. First come first served!! Their telephone number is 01752 664997and Hotel web-site . I have already booked my room!
There is not a whole lot more I can do at this stage but will appreciate your co-operation in confirming your attendance and Rib details.
Any comments?
ps I speak for everyone I hope, thanks for the effort Brian.

I'm sure others here would join me in Thanking Charles and Brian for thier efforts.

I've booked my room at the hotel and look forward to seeing you all in May.

Anyone wishing to hop on my boat at Exmouth or Torquay/Brixham is welcome to do so (drop me mail as obviously numbers are finite).

Greetings All . Another "Newbie" I'm afraid . I'm hoping to get my first RIB sometime in the next four months , and it's been absolutely fascinating finding the RIbnet Forum and trying to take on board all the do's don'ts and maybes of your first RIB. At the risk of boring Charles who has already heard my story , along with my son and daughter , we took the Level 2 powerboat course at Pembrokeshire Watersports early last summer. We also all did the marine VHF SRC at Southend last Autumn. All good stuff but useless if you don't go out and practice to consolidate it all. My crew are already mutineering with the Son , emmigrating to OZ , and daughter about to make me a Grandad this Summer, so perhaps I'll have to forget about the 6.3M diesel job , and find something a bit more manageable for single handed launching & recovery. So I'll be the first to admit I have everything to learn and having spoken to Charles , would like to come along to the Inaugural Ribnet "Do" at Plymouth and pick all your brains and perhaps scrounge a few rides with you guys to find out what this Ribbing thing isReally all about.
