Rib Magazine

The number one specialist Rib Magazine, dedicated to the world of RIBs eh! So how come they do not know what the B____y 'B' means?
Just been on their web site and looked at the boats for sale bit, called 'Nearly new and second hand RIB boats'.
Is it me, or does it say a lot about the site?

I think it probably says more about you.

Simon,
Rib magazine is just that - a glossy magazine. It is OK, but as with many publications you sometimes have to 'interpret' some of the comments. As an organisation they obviously have aspirations to move upmarket, they have just launched a Super Yatch Tender quarterly magazine. As for HMS, not qualified to comment.

Really! This is good news, no more stinky orange dive ribs for me then, put me down as a subscriber I'll definitely be having some of that toned-tanned-totty sprawled all over some expensive teak and we arent talking a cross dressing David Dickinson astride a "genuine chipendale"

I rather liked that last Super Yacht Mag they did .. It gave me aspirations that I too, could create a hedge fund, and then plunder it nefariously, in the name of a market downturn, thereby blaming everyone else for thier own predicament

I have noticed though, that even if your a speccy grey haired Bernie Ecclestone midget, the totty will appear as if by magic if you are well wadded .. but they can go just as fast too .. taking more than just the house and the super yacht .... nah I think I'll leave it

The Round Scotland trip looked good I would like to do that one sometime. They had superb weather for it by all appearances.

As magazines go I like Rib International I find their reviews informative and they are not afraid of pointing out faults on the boats they test.

There are always going to be articles that don't appeal (such as Graham Jellys articles which I thought were just utter shite)

I also think its fair to say that if you are a "get your hands dirty DIY ribber" then RIBnet is an excellent resource
