Any RIBSTtERS in North Florida / South Georgia

I was curious if there were any other ribsters along the southeastern U.S. coast. I go offshore quite a bit, mostly to shoot fish.( have a Seafood Market), and its always fun to join up with others for a spin or exploring new spots. Water tempt. is a wee
bit nippy, but the fish are numerous.(generally venture 9 to 25 miles out) and the lobsters fat, they average 15 - 18 lbs.
Look forward to some responses, knowing full well most all are Brits.......so, I am French.
A bientot,
Didier

Well actually................

A mate of mine, Chris Hough has recently emigrated to New Orleans but I suppose that's no use? (Hazy grasp of geography of that part of the world!) He's a Brit, built his own rib on a Scorpion hull and has shipped it over in a container. He was telling me that it had arrived last weekend and he's looking forward to trying it out in the sun!

I can put you in touch if you like.

Alan

Yanks

Didier,
I live in North Carolina, please feel free to email me. I'm always game to go. Working on plans for a Rib of my own come Spring, but willing to crew as well.

Alan,
Would you pass along contact info to your friend as well in New Orleans, for me to begin putting a list of Ribsters togeather in the States. I really believe this is the year Ribbing begins to catch hold here. The more the merrier. THanks.
Neil

Thanks Alan for the reply. Sure, I would like to get in contact with him. I am in Jacksonville, Fla. and thats not really that far. A meet in the panhandle or as its called, "The Redneck Riviera", would be neat as I have not ventured to much in the gulf of Mexico or in that area. New Orleans is a pretty kool spot to visit and have had the opportunity to live there but passed it up. Thanks again...
Didier

The Idea of having an RIB type Club would be kool....after all it is quite popular in France and the U.K. why not the U.S.A.?

If you organise a meet, be sure to send me the details so I can add it to the RIBnet calendar!

Didier/Sirzap,

I'll email Chris tonight and ask if he doesn't mind me passing his email on. I should think that he'll be only to pleased to meet fellow Ribsters!!

He's already invited me out there for a spot of ribbing so you never know!

If you set up a US RIB Club then I'd be happy to foster links with BIBOA - I've just been relected as Cruising Coordinator.

Cheers, Alan

Alan,
I own the domain name www.rib-usa.com, and hope to be setting something up soon. Any suggestions as to who and what to use to set up a web page are greatly welcomed. I will be glad to set up this site for Yanks to touch base and spread the news.
Neil

Neil,

Your man for all web related stuff is Mr Kennett, certainly from the techie side. BIBOA doesn't make a whole lot of use of our web page (kindly maintained by Hotribs and rib.net) which is mainly due to a lack of interest in modern technology by some of the committee!

Happy to give opinionated advice on content though!

Alan
