Thanks all , after a degree of buggering around when I thought I was free to be told I infact wasn't ( by Mrs M...) I have arranged an assesment to be very convenient to me,- all of 100 yards from my house with Ribnetter, in Streaker (I think mainly to make it harder as it doesn't go backwards very well...).

Maybe the first of several qualifications...I am feeling very very out qualified by other ribbers/kids/ friends and its never to late to learn what I have been doing wrong all these years !

Pete

Many thanks to Brian of Ashby Powerboat School for sorting this out for me. A very pleasant couple of hours on the water with a great approach & sensible attitude to boating.

We even managed to tow yet another boat back up the river so hopefully another bit of good 'karma' in the bank for me should I ever need it. The owner of said boat was keen to take tow only from us & even now is hopefully speaking to Brian to arrange some time of his own with him.

Thanks to all for emails etc .

Pete
