How many active Americans on this forum

Just wondering how many people (non european) check up on this forum, been pretty inactive myself the last few years... it seems viewership has dwindled significantly but maybe I am wrong about that?

I check almost daily and i for one have missed hearing from you and seeing pics of war machine. Up here in the NE we americans have so little time to boat with the nasty weather that we just cant keep a thread going. Good to hear from you though. when will you be bringing your boat up this way for a ride so I can drool over it?

I'm with LTF (aside from the weather thing). Check once or twice a day, unless I have no access to the net or my computer.

I check in on a regular basis, 2-3 time a week, although Michele has this crazy idea of trading Blue Moon toward a small trawler in the 25-27 ft range and touring the east coast or the icw.

Ribfan, its simple. you keep the rib and buy the trawler. the rib becomes your dinghy. If you remember in newport at the tall ships we found out there is no such thing as too large of a dinghy. you cant get rid of your rib. Your boat handles the seas better than a 30 foot trawler.

I'm here daily... this is the most comprehensive source of rib information in the world. Unfortunately, ribs just aren't as popular over here.

I'm not "American", although I live in North America.

I check the site once a week or so, however, I'm back to looking at older build posts every other day since the weather here has reached +40 Deg F. Time to go out to the garage and see where I left off before the winter.

I'm on here most days for something. I'm in the process of refurbing my rib, and this site is invaluble to me. Once spring/summer comes i'd definitely be interested in a meet in the north east. I'm in NJ, and I think there are at least a few others in the New England area.

Anyone??

Haven't been on in a while, but usually check regularly in the summer.
