Seconded.....

Is there any other publication that may be interested? Even the rnli have a quarterly magazine!

Surely the RnlI mag is a good idea. Massive circulation compared to PBR and has members who are up for charitable giving!

Isn't HQ at cowes? Surely someone on here who is a lifeboatman has connections to the publication?

Practical Boat Owner? They tend to be WAFIs but there is some non-WAFI stuff and restoration etc is up there street.

PBO is the biggest circulation marine mag in the UK AFAIK.

To not have put out the article has really really really put me off even liking at the mag again.

Total failing on the mags part to offer something relevant to the 4m rib owners up to the 10m.......in the same article.....buy then no one was paying them......what a bunch of shockingly self serving nobbers....

May be worth contacting Simon Everett who wrote the article. He may know something.

HMS is just a business person and I don't think he has any interest in ribs except for playing or earning his living, can we blame him for that, probably not, I really haven't got any time for him, to me it's a passion and I find his treatment of us ribbers shocking and it's wrong, he's pretty shallow to think that there isn't mileage in this story as it touches the hearts of more than just ribbers and I can't see it would do his circulation any harm either, I for one would buy the mag, first one for over a decade

I contact PBR on 11/12/13 -before latest release asking for the date the article would appear
Part of reply- "Repeated apologies but issue 117 will not contain this feature. We have gone to 156 pages and even then we've had to choose the absolute critical material only. Running the big RI Special meant we didn't have space to run another RIB cruise styled feature. Have it now planned for 118. . HMS"

I believe 117 is now out so lets hope for the next one, may even give you a chance to spin off it for the 2014 IOW charity run
