The trailer corrosion thread was an earlier episode.

The most recent one started off as a discussion about Falcon RIBs then moved on to trailers.

He posted bad and arguably dangerous advice (it's OK to tow a 7.5m RIB on an unbraked trailer)

When this was pointed out he became abusive

After I emailed him about this issue he replied "this is your opinion NOT MINE. Any way I'm off to the beach and will not have time for trivia for the next couple of months."

Like I said, let's see if he's still interested after his holiday . . .

You may be the only person who didn't expect you to start campaigning for Manos and Flanker!

I haven't been boating at all this year, and have clearly forgotten everything I ever knew. Thank heavens we have such knowledgeable and experienced people as you still around to guide us all in the right direction!


John

What have you lost the plot completely, again ? the whole point of these forums is to learn, possibly by others mistakes or lessons learnt, but hopefully so we don't make the same mistake twice. If you offer advice it must come from a facts, experience or knowledge. I think you need to buy yourself a little 5.5m rib and get some experience, oh and is this Ali rib of yours "a manos" ?

Come back Flanker and Manos as Flanker and Manos have learnt a load of stuff now as they have done more in fast boats/ribs than JK has done this yr. ?
Given the amount of time JK puts into running this web site for very little reward then your coment is out of order and I request you apologise.

Pete

This thread is going down hill fast. Please can we call a stop to it. Manos is interesting and have given some interesting facts about prices and engines as well as very uninteresting information about spraying cars with diesel. Flanker was far more abusive on the forum than Manos though I canít see his pm's or e-mails act. Please lets not continue this conversation though. I am often wrong but get corrected. I remember this time last year I was arguing with Manos about the theory of anchoring (very sad I know) and when he realised that what I was saying made sense he egnoleged it and that was that. This is the type of discussion that I look for as everyone has their own opinions. Talking about who has done what when is stupid the great thing about this forum is that it is for all. Whether they be instructors, pleasure use, expedition, or commercial. I am not interested in people pulling rank by saying I have done this their for I know more than you it is pathetic. Can we get back to Ribs now. Thanks JK for the forum.

Evening all

Hi folks,

Ha Ha another day in the life of Rib nett.

Pete 7 IMHO you should be banned from rib nett for trying to persuade others on the virtues and benefits of a reconstituted and underpowerd diesel , self fitted out floating Chicken Coop rib to be alowed on the Solent for a bit of charter work.IMHO Ha Ha

But we all do things based on our experiances,Dont we Pete 7
If you want to put some money on wether my boat exists or not then go for it Jk can be the Banker. I am waiting.

JK I have met Diggi and I like him,I have met John Fuller and I like him,I have met Manos and I like him and Flanker and I would stay overnight with all of them if I had the time and go cruising with any of them as crew anyday.

All have come close to a forum Ban but only when you meet people do you rely get to know what makes them tick.The impression you see on a forum is not always correct and neither is all there advice or info applicable.

Pete7 boat is great for some maybe ?but in my oppinion is a waste of money as ribs have moved on and a cheaper better faster boats can be had for less money. Thats my oppinion.


I may be wrong JK but when Manos gave a finger to your advice as to what constituted dangerous advice,Im am sure it was a little annoying ?

I cant imagine anybody going out and buying a trailer based on what Manos,s advice only was,Ifthey do then that is stupid?



The forum did what it does and pointed out the error in the advice,as I have done re Old teck diesel ribs that require a load of work.?

Its not a bannable offence surley to say what you believe wether correct or incorrect as long as you views are taken with a pinch of salt untill you have met the person and satisfied youreself that you are confident enough to take there word only.


As far as Jk haveing a load of experiance then I agree but we all started somewhere and my point is it doesnt take long before the novices get some sea miles under there belts and give them who think they know it all a real good pasting.

Manos and Flanker both are both happy sucsesfull men with sucsesful buisnesses. Dont underestimate them.

Providing Newbies train properly and are determined they become winners that usualy come out of now where and wipe the flaw with them that thought they had the Sea sussed.

So maybe we shouldnt right anybody off cos we believe we know best or have worn the Tee shirt as underestimating people is something I dont do as I grow older and wiser.

Maybe on certain topics and at that point in time you may feel we are right, but we can all learn, things dont stay the same,they change,weather we like it or not.IMHO

As far as an appology goes to Pete7. FU

I've said it before and I'll damn well say it again, it's how they behave on the forum that matters on the forum, not what they're like in person.

'horse, I won't be able to make it - too much to do! I like the spirit of your offer though.... I can just picture it, parked outside the boozer... putting fluid into the reservoir in the half-darkness, and all those double-entendres "when I turn the wheel, tweak my bleeding nipple"

So, will the champers be going over the boat or down the hatch??

Your on Pete . Must be a good bottle though. No home brew

I think that it should go over the bow at the next yrs Rib Nett Meet.
