Glad you liked it.

I can do the computer, and have the printing industry connections, but would struggle with time for marketing etc.

I'll consider a Club type newsletter thing as a start in the new year.

Just had a look at the info board next to the editorial in the latest issue of RIB int.

Hugo "Montgomery-Swan", the editor is supported by amongst others:-

Tony Lee-Elliott, Ex Flatacraft and my all round hero of RIB development.

And Simon Everett, who once turned up at my house to Photograph my Motorbike for its feature in Streetfighters magazine, another good guy.

So its surprising the content doesn't turn me on.

I've got plenty of that - some would say too much! So if you need a hand with writing, proof-reading, layout etc I'll have a go. As for marketing, I don't have any experience but would be willing to have a go at that too!

Let's do it!

Don't give up. Two years ago we had a real go a Hugo - and I mean a real go!
RIB International had deteriorated in quality, and was in danger of becoming a cross between Hello Magazine and Car Magazine (eg. The Montgomery-Swanns take the New Range Rover to Brittany for a long weekind - read about what a lovely time they had...) and much of the rest of the magazine was shameless advertorials - pointed out to the less streetwise amongst us (like me!) by a former publisher.
Anyway, after our major whinge, the car reviews were dropped, the advertorials were presented in a better way, and there was a huge increase in contributions by "grass roots" RIBsters - notably Keith Hart whose exploits filled some quality column inches.

Do a search on "RIB International" here on RIBnet - it gets interesting on page 7 of the search results... the original whinge thread is here: Magazines
John Kennett did an interesting poll: RIB International
and Hugo did some earlier stuff here: Contributions to RIB International

No offence, and excuse my ignorance, but who's Paul Lemmer?

Paul Lemmer is a guy that's been around Ribbing for a long time. He used to own BWM and now runs a couple of boat related companies. I know he is an Agent for Parker ribs.

I think he races (navigates) in a Bannana shark called Maverick , he is not universally recognised as being lucky on the water

I think he's had more recent success in Eraser II than in Bananashark I

As Stu says, not associated with the best of luck - hence the phrase "Lemmerised".

Possibly now the only UK dealer for Parker RIBs!

Nasher lets put it this way, I have seen Paul break more boats than Rogue Wave and some of them he was just a passenger Nice chap just don't let him near your boat. some wit once say don't ever take his advice even in dire circumstances as the cost of sorting out his assistance will invariably cost twice what the original problem would have done,

However great chap and a wealth of experience and amusing stories, put him along side tony Lee-Elliott as one of the original nice guys in ribs.
