I agree with Searider. The Biboa cruises are very nice but "every man - rib for himself-. I experienced this in 2003 during the Weymouth cruise following which I said "never again"
Last year , however., I signed up for the Weymouth cruise yet again and had the misfortune of experiencing an electrical fault and even put out a Pan Pan.... I eventually managed to get to Southampton under my own steam. In Southampton waters I met up with fellow RibNet member BenC who provided great assistance

"Now Now" children think yourselves all lucky that we can afford our Ribs, whatever the size, as they say "size isnt everything" For various reasons some like large boats, some have to trail them, some garages wont take a large boat, the car can't tow anthing larger, or the most common reason "her in doors". The one thing we all have in common, we enjoy ribbing, so don't lets go down the route of having a go at fellow ribbers.
On the BIBOA cruises, all are welcome, and boats are paired up to run with each other, as they were coming back from Dartmouth this week, I am unfortunately not a youngster, and not wishing to crush my aging bones, so Julian ran with me at my pace. Also for those with smaller boats, there is a certain comfort of having larger boats around, if the going gets tough. I think John thought the forum needed scorping up a bit, and that is why he started this thread.

I am on the committee of BIBOA, and yes i have voiced the same comments as most of you on this forum at the meetings, but there is a bigger picture.
I for one like cruising in company i dont speed off leaving people behind because i once had a 560 Avon so i know what its like being left. But there are others who will and do cruise further afield with big fast RIBS.Mike Deacon is the development officer and a nice chap with it
SPEAK UP AND TELL mike at BIBOA WHAT YOU WANT FROM YOUR MEMBERSHIP MONEY. Dont hold back
That is the only way the club will change.
the web www.biboa.com
All clubs are a bit clickie even this one, i have been cold shoulded at meetings but hey you have to be grown up about it

i have had a look at the website

the cruises has 2006 listed at the top instead of 2007
the articles /riblines feedback seems to have stopped in 2005

membership is 50

it is not clear to me the value that biboa provides for 50, or have i missed something. not having a go but just trying to understand the value from joining.

looks like this is an opportunity to do some advertising and share the value that biboa can bring to see if new members can be enticed.

roy if you have been cold shouldered then what chance do we have?

Hey Roy,

That's not been our experience on RIBnet. Come along on the Priory Bay run and you will meet some top people.

Be great to meet you We'll run across with you if you've not been there before!

Kathleen & Paul

As Julian's 'Scorp Fest' to Dartmouth ( Dartmouth) appeared to be organised via this site and consists mainly of his Scorpion owning buddies, why not drop the BIBOA cruise tag. Other than the fact that they've all coughed up 50 and are wearing the stickers, I don't see what it has to do with BIBOA. Unless a BIBOA cruise carries a little more kudos in the Dartmouth region than a Ribnet cruise.
