Oh...and just to make it really clear...my ensuing silence is simply to avoid being provoked any further by you two wind-up merchants. I see no merit in a toothless exchange of insults that the security of this Forum affords. If you hear from me again it will be not be anything to do with RIBnet.

JF. I would like to straigten something out here as well!

I have never spoken ill of Bear or his attempt, in fact I have publicaly wished him well which I will continue to do so.
What I have done is point out a huge mistake in his publicity material which is very far from the truth.

If by mentioning that he is incorrect in his story makes me offensive and a "Twat" in your or others eyes then I am sorry but that is life.

If I am to be critised for telling the truth then again, sorry.
Jan Falkowski, Steve Lloyd and myself crossed the North Atlantic in a 7.4 metre rib in 1997 and that is a fact.
We crossed it again in 2001 and are presently the UIM world record holders for this crossing.

As an ex racer, you more than anyone should understand how riveraly works at a competitive level.

So, once again I will state. I have no problem with Bear's attempt and for the record I think he is a thourghy nice young guy, and if he the takes the Trans Atlantic trophy from us he will have deserved it because only his crew and mine will know how hard it was to get. I just wish he had got his facts right. Alan P

My sentiments exactly!

Now we know where we all stand:

Mike Garside still thinks violence is the answer, but not publicly on the forum, and Alan Priddy thinks he didn't belittle Bear and his team with his comments (such as 'the young pretenders')!

Now can we drop this rather boring subject.

P.S. Mike, my post re: 'humility' that you quote, was, it would appear, a very poor effort at smoothing things over by suggesting it took a real man to make such a statement, and that I would find it a hard pill to swallow! so I retract that statement, as you clearly aren't worthy of it!

Please Jon give it a rest

Is your arragance and Petulance so great that you really have to get the last word in, everytime! . The name calling which we all seem to enjoy on Boatmad just hasn't got a home here (IMHO) You are busy rubishing two very respected members of our community and I for one don't appreciate it.

I met Alan a few times and find him to be a reasonable, even and fair guy justifiably upset about Bear ignoring his crews record setting achievements and claiming to be the first people to attempt the Atlantic Run.

As for your treatment of Mike G I can fully well understand why he is so hacked off I would be in his situation. Fortunately Cornwall is such a long way from our part of the coast so you'll probably be OK.

If this is Humour, a claim you often make when you wind people up, then it ain't working and at best second rate.

If it's a technical argument then it lost all creedence when it became personal.(be it your fault or not!)

Another good piece of advice I was given:

Do not confuse verbosity with being erudite and getting the last word in does not mean you have won the argument.
