A guy called eksrae posted pics of his ally rib build here a while ago. 28' aluminum rib
So did CH. If his is virtual, he must have pinched the pics from somewhere.

You may need to be careful about galvanic corrosion in a an ally rib. I think you may not want to let the small change you dropped into the bilge, lie there for any length of time.

I would imagine an aluminium hull to be noisier. Fibreglass will be self damping since it's laminar in nature.

Manos, Alan, JW and all,
I spoke to Crazyhorse on the phone the other week, and he told me that a guy from Euro tubes (i think that's the name of the company) is in Canada right now fixing the tubes to his, as you like to call it " virtual rib ".

I f this is true, and I have no reason to doubt him, then you all may be tasting humble pie very soon.

Regards

DD

PS, hey Manos, like your new profile, I imagine your doing loads of "Lying" as usual!!!!!

Don't include me in that group. I certainly wasn't suggesting his boat is virtual. Indeed, I was hinting at the opposite.

Mr Diggler, I was merely pointing out that Mr Horse has been absent from this forum and your own particular playpen for sometime and I believe owes Mr 7 a bottle of bubbly. I will delighted to see the Eurocommuter in the flesh and would guess there is more chance of that than seeing the phantom baja

Mr DD as you are in my ignore list since I find your input into discussions not useful (to put it politely) I could not see your message. However, your message was displayed on the replies of the other members. So here it goes.

I have heard stories about this aly RIB and I have seen some drawings, I also asked for my opinion about the wheel house window arrangement and I have no reason to doubt Mr Horse. However, as I think that you may be Mr Horse (since he was telling me sometime ago how bad person you were - the exact word starts with w - and that he was not talking to you and also he was not talking either to some other people he met down in S'amton), listen to this.

I find it very strange that a RIB takes such a long time to be finished. Is only a 10 mtr boat and is not constructed by NASA.

If I recall rightly Mr Horse told me that there were some delays so the boat wouldn't be ready as scheduled. Nevertheless, he was sure that the boat would have been ready in the summer and him with his other half would be cruising in Canada (I think) before they brought it back to Europe or may be they would leave it in the US - Florida I think.

In any case time will show whether this RIB exists or not. If does is OK if it doesn't is OK too. Neither me or anyone else I don't think will lose sleep over its existence.

However, as it stands right now and until this boat materialises and sails in the water this aly EUROCOMMUTER RIB is a 'VIRTUAL RIB'

I will be happy to stand by the bet and buy a Magum for CH. The time limit is fast approaching, end of Sept if I remember, but if he brings it across the Atlantic under her own steam then he deserves a bottle anyway.

Pete
