before any one comments, it was pretty cold when the last picture on the water was taken......

we have normal non inflatable foam lifejackets on under the dry suits for extra thermal protection.


cheers ;-)

It's my firm belief that all ribs should come with a CD of digipics taken throughout the construction process.

Before you develop chronic RSI from waving the Parker flag, how about arranging visits to the Solent and Scorpion factories (both very close to you)? Then you could present us with a slightly more objective overview of rib design and build processes.

HotRibs have started a very interesting thread about rib builders and it starts off with inputs from:

Scorpion
Redbay
Ribcraft

see link: http://www.hotribs.com/06ribmakers/ribmakers.asp

I will be adding our piece as well

Hey tis ok Andre am sure Richard will sort that for you in due course


The idea of pix and cd's is a great thought.

With that in mind Ribcraft are just installing a webcam into their work shop so we can all watch my boat in build.
This will be from the stage it is at now through to completion.

I think you will all agree this will give a unique insite into the build process.

Cheers

Sorry Jon to disappoint you but this will be from me only as I had promised Kevin some time ago that I would contribute to that thread. Just had not got round to it but I think this will now motivate me.

as for Richard flying the Parker flag then why should one be suprised. Just like any Scorpion , Avon, Ribcraft, Humber owner ect would fly the flag of their chosen rib manufacturer, and so they should.
