Yep

Volvo man is John Glenny. He's very helpful, softly spoken and pleasant to deal with.

Hope to get the drive height correct first time. If not, the spacer may be a life saver, or, more accurately, a transom saver. If required, it'll be there for ever.
JW.

No problem with techi questions, it just seems a bit pointless as you seem to already know all the answers.

Infact, is there any subject that you are not an expert on, or at least read a few chapters on?

I'm amazed at the amount of posts people put on here supposedly asking a question, only to then disagree with the answers. Take for instance the "trim tab" post. It started off as what is the point of them, carries on like that for a while until Chas posts that for the first time he has used them and can't believe how good they are, so then everybody decides they must have them.

And I thought my wife was weird!!

Its a weird world Diggi,

Some learn from others views and run with them without a question and then cock up,others question from those they consider who may have the answers then run with them and find out they were also wrong,some question from there mates then find out they havnt got a clue,Others question and dig and make the right choice for that time in space and hopefully make the best informed decision on what is correct at that point in time.If our pal takes a wrong turn with his trim tabs,it was not the best decision he has made in fitting them.Thats the way it is.As long as your happy with what you have that is the main thing,if your aims are not to get taken for a ride and get the best available at that time then you have to go at the project with more imfo from those who have experienced it and have no allegience to any manufacturers or there products and have the Technical know how and are prepared to say so.
I am no expert but I take my guidence from the few who in my opinion know what they are talking about and fit this criteria.

In the main they either have a lots of experience whether it be boats or ribs or engineering or techi issues,or indeed being out on the water day in and day out.The art in my oppinion is picking the right person who has the experience and skill set to help me and others make a more informed view possible and therfore gives you the best chance of getting what you want.Within there respective knowledge.

For egsample the Skipper who uses his boat all day,may not go offshore that much so has limited experience in that area,the offshore man may have little or no experience of techi issues,the engineer you maybe wouldnt get on a boat for all the tea in china.The ribster who uses his boat for fun is not aware of engineering issues and longevity problems.They all have a view and its important for it to be recognised,its then down to us to filter them into the right compartments.and use this vast knoledge base in making a more informed decision on whats right or wrong for us.

The art of a debate is to be able to change ones mind based on the imformation or even if it means we source out more oppinions it helps.

My view is I found it real hard in making informed objective decisions on my rib,and I would like to make it easier for somebody else who maybe also asks the same questions as I,and then they can either come to the same conclusions or there own different ones,its up to them,Im glad to say its a free world.I wish them all well.

Maybe the wife isnt that weird after all.

On the subject of any subject I am not a expert on then it has to be woman .

The power of woman should not be underestimated as I have changed my post 10 times to try and get back on the right side of the my other half as at present im going to have to do the ironing and the washing up.


I find I am a bit of a hunni magnet when im in there company.

Maybe is becouse I have a rib.

RIBase
It is said that the Greeks wrote because they had something good to say whereas the Romans wrote because they thought it good to say something.

I just wonder if this could be true here?
