RIBnet PhD Thesis in Sociology

I think there's scope within the RIBnet membership for a Sociology PhD thesis.

It's possible, on the basis of some of the academia crap I have to read, that there may even be scope for a govt educational grant

The hypothesis is that there is correlation between what boating shoes you wear, what outboard you have, what RIB you have, how opinionated you are

Any takers?

So if I owned several ribs or a multicoloured one (orange, blue and green)

I would be a Helpful ribnobber who likes seaweed!

I can see you with more flashy "designer" colours, like:

Cherry
Umber
Neon
Tangerine
