Keith,

I'd love to come along.

There are a lot of ifs, though. There's a big family holiday booked in 2003 which I'm going on (no getting out of it as this year has been a family disaster with illness, bereavements and all sorts), and on top of this, work commitments have gone beserk, with time off very difficult.

So, if I can, then I will

Matt - is it the Bombard Tropik?
If so and you need a hand, the seller's 20mins down the road from me. Let me know if you need any local assistance.
Rich.

It's not looking promising now actually, even though the start price was only 50 quid, the reserve price is something above 250, so even if I win the auction (which is unlikely as it seems someone else has taken an interest in it) I probably won't be able to match the reserve price. Ah well, I'll still see how this goes, failing that, it's back to searching!

Just a passing thought Keith.....If you have not done so already, why do you not have it included in the official BIBOA cruising calendar for 2003. Maybe AW can give you a hand? I know August is a pretty full month already.

Hi Charles

I did think of this but rejected the idea bacause:

1. Last 'cruise' I tried to organise through BIBOA was a dismal failure, no one else but me turned up

2. I am looking at something more informal than an organised 'cruise'. It's more of an 'event'.

3. I'm not sure that I'm going to renew my BIBOA subscription

Thanks for the thought though. Hey, do you have a little SIB?

Keith (Scapa here we come) Hart

I had the same response when I organised a BIBOA SIB cruise a couple of years ago. After that I tried to get the club to change its name as it is clearly a RIB club not an Inflatable Boat club -- didn't succeed though . . .

Sad but true........

which is why I voted for Johns name change proposal a couple of years back myself! BIBOA is not a SIB club its a RIB club with a silly name

Only comment I would make is that if you are looking for a RIB or two to go along as safety boats you might publisize that fact in RIBLINES and you might get some support. (that is if you don't get any offers through RIB.NET).

Depending on my Circs next year I might be interested either as a SIB participant or possibly as safety RIB.

Cheers,
Alan
