Hey guy's, have you thought about getting a SIB and joining....

"The Midlands and North West SIB Club."

just for spending the odd weekend somewhere different like the Lakes and without the hassle of dragging your rib behind the car

last saturday was the Meolfre Lifeboat day, and a number of us decided on another annual cruise setting of from Ty Calch at Caernarfon, through the menai straits, past puffin island and over to moelfre, approx 25 miles each way, we also collected a couple more ribs on the way. after various posts I said I would launch around 10'ish, mainly as I didn't want a mad thrash to moelfre as i'm just not upto it, most seemed to agree 10'ish was ok. so saturday came, i think i did launch around 10, then waited on the water till the last rib was launched, around 11'ish, seems that for some a 10'ish launch arriving at the slip anytime after 10, but heyho, it's not an organised cruise, there is no leader etc etc. so we eventually set off around 11'ish and head for the straits, picking nugent up at port dinorwic. i thought a short stop in the shelter of puffin island would be a good idea, to let everyone catch up and get their breath back before heading across to moelfre, a few of us did head over to puffin but some set off straight for moelfre, again not an organised cruise so no probs. when we arrived at moelfre there was plenty going on as usual, i was a bit knackered, the chemo is still taking its toll, so i sat back, poured a coffee n chilled out, watching the fun from a safe distance. i was a bit taken aback when two people accused me of not waiting for everyone to catch up, a bit off i thought as i didn't organise anything on the day. so carried on with me coffee, tucked into my lunch and thought i'll just keep out of the way, take a few photos and that would do me. a few of us had thought abought going round the island as moelfre is approx 1/3rd distance, but the wind was a touch fresh, i for one wasn't upto another day out like we had a few months back, so the general consensus was head back to the gazelle for a pint. before we set off, nat rang me to say she had just launched, but was having a few engines problems, so i headed over to find her, there seemed to be a engine warning bleeping away, but a few restarts seemed to cure it and she was back on yhe go, so all happy there, she came over to say hello to a few of the others, then we set off to the gazelle for a pint, agreeing on a stop at puffin island to re-group. on the way to puffin island i missjudged a wave and landed very heavily, i was winded but also worried i had done something else, still another op to go to put my plumbing back together. i backed off and continued on to puffin island to catch up with the others, as i approached puffin island i spotted the others setting off for the gazelle, at this point i lost a bit of enthusiasm and slowed right down, no point in making things any worse, so i just carried on back to the straits and caernarfon. i passed the gazelle but decided against trying to stop, i didn't feel up to trying to land and tie the rib up, took me a while to get back to caernarfon where the lads helped me recover the rib very quickly, which was much appreciated at the time. anyway, once back on dry land i was feeling very tired and sad that what had promised to be a good day out had been spoilt, i was disappointed that nobody had come back to see if i was ok and just left me on my own. i had taken the decision some time ago that i didn't want to be slowing others down, so had not gone along on some trips such as the recent cruise over to ireland as i wasn't confident i was upto it healthwise, but a short trip to moelfre was i thought a reasonable trip for me. anyway, i guess a hard lesson learnt on my side, i now know that i may as well cruise on my own then it's up to me to decide what i can and can't do, i also know that there's not much point in my joining any more ribnet trips, i don't want to slow others down. so, despite the good times we've had the last couple of years, last weekend spoilt it for me, so i've decided that ribnet is no longer for me, hence the title my last post. i wont be back, no point in looking back, i need to concentrate on the future, my next and hopefully last op, and next season on the rib
Hey big guy who will I be able to call when my engine is playing up? Who took me on my first trip through the swellies? You my dear, dear friend!! You are going nowhere dafty! Now "that's enuff" nonsense now let's get something in the diary! Will speak to you tomorrow

Nat - talk a bit of sense to that man. Maybe give him a winegum? I don't know him but he's a part of my day and I'll be more than aggrieved to see him go under these circumstances.

donegaldan and I cruise with the motto "Leave no man behind" and I'd like to think RIBnet would be the same.

Rofl, that's a classic to be brought up again!

It's 1am and I'm downstairs with a teething screaming 10 month old, but that made me smirk!
