I know this is a little of track but still relavant I think.
IMHO I have now read a couple of copies of R.I. If you are in the top end of the rib market fine, but there is also a vast number of ribsters who make up the bulk of the ribbing community who are normal working class people and not in the industry.
I enjoy reading about new developments, but would also like to see practical information, like passage, planning, places to visit, tidal calculation refreshers. How to use a gps corectly; high speed navigation not at 5 knots, perhaps basic for some, A usefull reminder for others. Especially as the growth in this sector of the boating industry is booming.
I know it will always be difficult to cater for the masses, but please lets see a good magazine become better. And not surcome to the wims of the Editor or his staff.
