What we require is the following:

Date

Time

Location

How long is everyone staying?

Is it just a p*ss up or a bit of a cruise?

Thanks

How about October 5th / 6th - as you started the ball rolling, Keith, are you free that weekend?

With the low pressures hovering in the Atlantic, it could turn into Charles's last option But if it's any later in the year the SIBs will need the RIBs to be ice breakers!

Keith, take the bull by the horns...

as you are the rib.net unofficial commodore, I think you should make a strong managerial decision re dates / places !!! go for it and let the others work round it !!

After all this thread started nearly a month ago and winter draws near

(ps: free beer for you all weekend if it gets held down south, no pressure )

My idea would not be to go for a ‘cruise’, but rather to meet somewhere we could do some local trips, mess about in the boats, do a bit of cross decking (I said cross DECKING not cross dressing!), drinks and a meal in the evening etc. Just an informal gathering organised over the ‘net. No club, no fees, just pay your own expenses, come and go as you wish sort of weekend. I’m thinking of the sort of messing about in boats weekend that would include the tiddlers (ie. me) and bigger boats alike (Brian in Cyanide, we could go for a swim in his on board swimming pool
My idea was for sometime in the Spring next year.

Pepper, I will buy anyone who turns up with a SIB a pint!

Oh yes, I'll also do some car stickers.

Keith, Remember you are not the only sib! I might have no engine but I hope to change that over the winter. Pepper, Keith is tea total but as his official "rotwieler" I drink for him. TLS. By the way did no-one think about a meet in the north sea. Lots of things to see at places like Bamborough, Holy Island etc.

Spring - yep i'll be there. October - need to know a date ASAP if anyone fancies it, and i'll try and make it too. Keen to put names to faces - or is that faces to names!

dbillyboy - Bill i think - if we have an end of season meet you can borrow my 4hp Merc for the weekend if it's any good - unless, of course i decide to borrow a SIB and come down and drink a KH beer!

I can't do October as Quicksilver is up in Scotland

We are going up again in the middle of October and I hope to take her out a few times then

I won't have room in the car to bring Quicksilver back though

Nevermind, I'll be back up there for the new year so I should be out in Quicksilver on New Year's Day

I'll bring Quicksilver down then, ready for the Spring Ribnet Mass Meeting

Hi JK, should this be moved to the cruising thread?

Hi folks, seeing as the SIB expedition is as far up North as it is possible to get on the mainland (well okay, I know that Dunnett Head is actualy a bit further, but that is not a good place for SIBs to cross The Pentland Firth) [Is anywhere?], lets have the mass-meeting on the South Coast.

Right, somewhere back in the thead, someone suggested Poole. Now is the time to own up (we can always check afterall), and get in touch again. We can discuss facilities etc.

March sometime?

Oh yes, how about some Poole Factoids?

Keith (come out whereever you are) Hart
