Im boatless at the moment so sorry we cant join you,Im expecting delivery around September of this yr,where we will join in all the experditions we can if she is on time.It will be good to see the other North west Ribs and do a bit of offshore ribbing.When I owned the yacht we found that whenever we went offshore there was nobody arround,they were in tha club house drinking.

Our plans are Hazy as far as Home port as I have a Lounching RNLI trailer and tractor.The problem is the rib doesnt fit on it,and any re welding can only be done when the boat arrives and is mesured up here in the North West.

Next yr have to be in Gigha for May,then open to all suggestions.

If the boat is here Gary we will be bringing here up from Thames port by sea,around late September.So if it is late on in the season a joint trip form Millford Haven may be on the Cards,but as you know it may be later on as it takes 2 months to ship from Vancouver.

So we will see.

Cant waight.

Crazyhorse.

Withdrawal symtoms

Crazyhorse, what you need is a boat for the season which you can then sell on. I know a man who is selling his.

Latest on new RIB is early March, which has not changed last couple of times I spoke to Ribcraft. Hopefully this will be the date it arrives. getting close now and I am getting frustrated

Wont be coming up NW till May though Dave. Got some work, fit out, antifoul etc down Milford Haven first.

When it does arrive I will let EVERYONE know.

Regards Gary

PS John keep a couple of giga bytes on the server for a few pics

Tshirts, shorts and sunburn? You can't be in the same North West that I'm in!

Once I've got the SIB I might join you out a few times during the summer if that's alright.

Dave your out again where did you go?were you training or cruising.

Im tempted to repair my sib and take it out for a whizz with all this talk about being out on the water.

Narked I dont know where you have been today but up here it was one of the nicest days with the sun out we have had this yr,chilly at times but nice all the same.

Boating whether.

Just back in, glorious night - nearly flat calm, crystal clear stars, moonlight. Mate on the island had a problem on the adjacent island of Great Britain so we launched one of the work boats (5.8 Tornado, 75 four stroke) to get him over, then had a run.
Yesterday weather c***p - SW 7/8. Sunday, son missed last ferry, launched our own rib (4.85 Zodiac, 50 four stroke) to recover (i.e. stop him having an excuse to spend night on mainland with girlfriend). Absolutely flat sea, bright moon. Had to go for a run, only did about 30 miles but spending time with a pod of porpoises was worth the frozen fingers.

Phill that night sailing is what liveing is all about to me.

A full moon and a feeling of serenity at sea with nature.

I believe its times like that you will always remember.

Good luck and treasure the moments,life is just to short

For Ribsters
