Why would we have any objections? If you are prepared to travel from somewhere warm and sunny to a wet and windy UK, you would definitely earn a big welcome!

Count me in.

I know all about the british weather. I've worked in London for four years (1988 - 1992). Actually my first daughter was born in london.

Spring next year sounds a great idea - count me in - wales is a fair drive in my 1973 range rover tow vehicle though - might need shares in Elf - but i'll be there.

It'll be great to meet loads of like minded people, the only reason i havent made an 'event' yet is that my diary is usualy full months in advance and i often work weekends.

Great idea keith.

Get Together

I would love to join the fun.2003 sounds good as I do not have a boat yet (Still considering the Ribeye for anyone who kindly responded to thread on the subject)
I hope to have made a decision and bought a boat by 2003!!!
My only experience on RIBs was in the Solent - Cowes week - and have to say it seems a perfect place to party but then I am sure there must be lots of good venues which I will hopefully find out in future.

Cheers

Clive

Please add my name to the list. Is someone keeping a list?
The unoffical Rib.net cruise on the Thames this year was an excellent event.
I would prefer the Solent as a venue, especially in the Spring when its not too crowded, but am open minded on where it should take place.

How about the last May Bank holiday as a date? Just an idea.

what an interesting development. ribsters are a micro-subset (and typical enough, i'd venture) of that part of the male (95%) population that thrives on challenge, technical intrigue and are largely driven. a site such as ribnet (excellently laid out imho) might have thought to have been sufficient vis a vis communication needs (technical info -sharing for mutual gain, jocular 'ribbing', symbolism, rule-making, hierarchical admiring etc.) but NO! Mr Hart shows the demand for physical space-sharing and emotional interaction (albeit couched in alcohol-freindly, non- committal and 'safe' surrounds). The Internet isn't all it was cracked up to be. Even the English don't find it sociable enough! WOW!

RIBNET - mass meeting

Great idea, this! Could I suggest Poole Harbour as a meeting point? Lots of slipways, lots of car parking, and if this is both RIBs 'n' SIBs, then Poole is SIB friendly even if it blows a bit. And more space (once you're out past the chain ferry) than the Solent.

Poole would suit me fine but in it only has 1 public slipway !!!!

For the SIB's Lake Drive is ok but the rest want an arm & leg for launch and recovery !

Regards

Mark
