cruise to ribex

We are coming to ribex with three ribs from holland.
That should be a nice cruise i think.
Does anyone have some nice suggestions about feuling, nice harbors, hotels, etc.
Hope to finally see some ribnet people over there.
greetings(and again sorry for the poor spelling etc.)

That should be a nice cruise. You can fuel up with petrol/diesel in Brighton Marine and also Littlehampton then the next stop is Cowes where you can also fuel up with the same

RibEx vs Seaworks

Hi there

As some of you probably know we have exhibited at RibEx for a couple of years, and had the choice of either RibEx or Seaworks for 2004. We went for exhibiting at RibEx firstly because we like doing the show and the atmosphere there is good but also it is on Fri, Sat, Sunday whereas the Seawork show is mid week (Tues,Weds,Thurs). We felt that most ribster's would prefer a weekend show?

I agree with some issues about Cowes but it does have some advantages like easy accessibility to non speed restricted waters. You might be interested to know that because of this and also the feedback I have had regarding going in your own boat we are going to offer a propeller test programme at the show, where you can try a prop on your boat.

Do many of you go to the camping / outdoor show at the NEC as there is meant to be a fair bit of boating equipment on show.

I'm sure Richard will be there looking for a nice shiny caravan

Sorry David the Empire collapsed some time ago, so waving your sterling around in Irish pubs is not going to get you the going rate. Convert to Euro before you travel.

As to the cash machines only giving 1:1 - you must have either pressed the wrong buttons, or too much Guinness affected your ability to read.

OR - you may have been visiting in the mid 90's, when the punt WAS worth more than a pound. Happy happy days.
