Some aclarations, seems there's just only 1 1/2 pissed mates, being a local dealer my business is cenetered in Lima, Peru, well known mostly from my web page and emailing services and of course word of mouth and definitely when sibbing around local waters.
How can I be a supporter if apart from me, don't know any single local sibber/ribber that knows or heard about Ribnet, as I found it just by accident, So far have received very light limbo answers, that I know have not asked the pissed guys to send me a diagram, clear photos on how it's done or strict measurements, so what's the big piss for theory rather than effective to follow hand labor info. ? Besides no one is obliged to answer, this is a free forum where you learn and change tech informations about real boat world with others. If you don't want to share with others, don't share, but change your selfish attitude. If I wanted to keep for myself all the information I know, wouldn't shared a single post with sibbers in Ribnet.
Light reader Chewy, did explain about the 530 rib rigging, this rib is not a rocket going to Jupiter nor I'm a blind person, have still both arms & hands and a perfect working brain and TG very skillful in what I do, so let me tell you that the rib was finally rigged with owner's crew and me and for being the first time counting with unprecise info sent by ribbers, we've done a great job and the sib will cruise as expected, so don't get sarcastic with me posting malicious statements as having received precious theory info, when practic rigging data was needed, just to publicly ridicule me. Had to go to check others local ribs to see how they were rigged, so it's no Ribnet top secret information you are sharing with me. So don't claim on behalf of the owner who happens to be my cousin. Maybe my sib posts are useless to you being a "expert ribber" (touche), but other sibbers finds this information interesting and precisely written by the emails I receive by my personal email.
So to end this nonsense posts, let's be impartial, let John decide if I'm making a personal profit out of unprecise Ribnet information.
Bottomline: No matter who does the job, will have a labor cost, or do you work for free, in that case will send an air ticket to anybody to rig my future rib and have nice time sipping piscos sours while ribbing down here. Anyone...?
