One year most of us had our forum monikers on the boats, mine was just tucked in behind the windshield.

I'll sort some sticky labels for names ....and pens

Good idea from Ian if poeple are not familiar with who is on what boat.

One idea...while we should have the entire pontoon to ourselves if the smaller boats can hold off to allow the bigger boats to get in first (as long as possible) anything bigger on the inside may make the inevitable rafting up less stressful ( on boats and poeple) ?

Make full use of VHF or a generic call to 'Any RIBNET vessel' if unsure of boat names etc - I am sure would be fine to establish comms.

Of course PM post if any drama/ concerns etc etc

Have we got a nominated working channel? 72? 77?

How about actually trying to use the RIBnet group MMSI? It's 023 200 057 but I don't know how many people have it programmed into their radios.

Don't forget we also have a RIBnet MMSI list which uses the MMSI information from everyone's profile.

Hi David - went down to the yard yesterday and launching and recovery looks to be a bit of a hassle this weekend - so would greatly appreciate a lift
Lets liaise
Thanks
John

Anyone else up for a bit of a run out before the mass rendezvous? Paul H? ianhappy?
Yeah I'm sure there will be a few up for a blast to the needles before lunch. Wouldnt be worth towing all that way for a quick hop over to the folly
