You have to remember however that if RIB International goes under because people like us don't support it then what are we left with?! Sportsboat mag is good but its not dedicated to the RIB. There is only ever going to be a limited number of ideas coming from a small number of people producing a mag like RI, so they need extra input from the readers to make it as good as it could be.

Blimey i've typed a lot!

Ok Tim

I think you made some valid points about in your reply but I've singled out the bit that I disagree with, If RIB Int goes down cos we don't support it then it clearly aint meeting our needs and there in my opinion lies the rub. Hugo was invited all those years ago to run a thread on this forum asking for ideas and he declined to take the option.

As it is a commercial operation then neglecting an oportunity to recieve feedback from your customers isn't a good move. Whilst the marketplace is burgeoning then he should be in a secure position for a couple of years yet.

I personally would welcome a Practical Rib and boat owner magazine!

Good point Stu! People can't be expected to buy a mag that they don't find interesting/informative just because they feel that they should! I agree with you completely.

I would like to say that I have read some fantastic articles in the mag (quite a few by Tony LE...one on rough water handling springs to mind), but I definately feel there aren't enough boat tests or tests of equipment and practical articles.

Perhaps this is an opportunity to start some sort of small scale RIB magazine with some articles written by people on here. I know we get all the stories and advice on the forum anyway, but wouldn't it be great to shift all the knowledge and talent into a publication?! I would love to get involved in something like that.

Cheers

Tim

I agree there was some good stuff. I am the holder of the Ribnet library (which means JK gave me all his old magazines) amongst all the copies of Hustler was a couple of Old Rib internationals and the stuff in it was a lot more interesting than the stuff you get nowadays. I agree Tony Lee Elliot can write well and knows his stuff

Ok so how about this for the mag's personell

Tekknkal edittorr WJ or JF Big Jono or someone else maybe David Manning

You'd better double check that battery

Or make sure you get some oars too

Was the accident featured in BBC 1's "Trouble on the beech" last year (I seem to remember something very similar)?

Yes he was interviewed at home afterwards as well - getting better now although I little way to go yet!

The boat will be racing in Formula 2 RIB next year which is to be renamed Formula 1 - you heard it here first!
