Yeah Baiter was the one I was thinking of. Good slip way except at springs ( low water )

There are loads of slipways but as BoatLaunch shows Salterns is one of then. Do not phone and ask what it costs to launch and recovery if you suffer from high blood presure / heart problems.

Yes, I had the trailer off the end when recovering my little SIB! A little planning goes a long way, as I have learnt

Poole could work very well with something for everyone. Larger RIB could launch in the Solent and cruise down and avoid paying the extortionate fees. There is a great Pub at Wareham, a gentle cruise up the River Frome at the western end of Poole Harbour.

Well I'm ok for wherever, but if we're going to be down south somewhere, would there happen to be anyone going who could pick someone up from the manchester area (ie someone who would have to go past here anyway) in return for some fuel contribution? If not, I'll look in to trains.

It was the 2 rib.net gatherings that persuaded me to upgrade my boat

First the trip down the Thames in Feb - I think everybody thought I was mad (and slightly wet) in my 3m TomKat.

Second was the SoC sendoff in Cardiff - again putting names to faces.

These 2 trips are where I met my friends that I now go cruising in company with - before buying my Ribcraft I got the chance to try their boats finding the pros and cons before specing mine.

So these gatherings are a must!! (I've also joined BIBOA and been on one of their cruises)

Poole sounds good - there is a campsite near Wareham which has its own slipway (as seen on www.ribpanther.co.uk !) - that was the last trip I did.

Jools, nice pics on the website again! I've looked at Geoff's book and it looks like it's 7 for non-campers to launch.

Keith, what do you reckon to this? Could Poole be transformed into the SIB & RIB mecca of the UK?

Richard (Can I have a go at some brackets?) B.

This Londoner is happy with the South Coast. Especially as I keep the boat in Port Solent!!

He didn't ask for your opinion! He asked us northerners!

I'd prefer wales, but providing I can find a way to get myself down there, I'm fine with the south coast.

How do you get the quote thing to work guys?

Regarding rib.net meetings encouraging people to upgrade ribs - is this obligatory? Don't know if i can afford to come now I already fancy a bigger boat!

Seriously - camping for the weekend and rib'in sound a great idea.
