Ribs v Sibs

Just wandering what or if there really is a difference between the two and which one is more manly

The answer is obvious, SIBs are much more manly, am I right Keith?

Narked,

I was interested from the passion you showed on another thread last night, thought I could learn more. e.g. could I also own a SIB as well as a sportsboat, or is that greedy, I didn't know they would fit in a car boot

Flanker: look out for a reasonable 2nd hand SIB and outboard. Nice and cheap and should be great for larking about close to shore, and for maybe trying some more adventurous trips (guess what this is leading up to folks...) such as the Orkney Expedition we're doing in 2003!

I'm going to use mine for just cruising around with some mates, freediving from, and for taking away on holidays to explore the coast.

Can't wait to get it!

Matt

Does the standard size Action Man fit in a SIB, and will it strap onto the back of Action Man Tank

The answer so soooooo obvious that it doesn't need an answer.
