I have been a member for many years
but yes its a club for 7.5 mts plus ribs any one who disagrees
needs to show me photos of a cruise (Solent area) where there are a number of sub 6.5 mt ribs togeather on a organised cruise
Its a racing club first and foremost
the do,s are if you want to get from A to B no messing about at speed doing cross channel stuff etc then this is it

the no,s are how many cruises are there where the bigger boats do not leave
the smaller boats,its not a good feeling seeing the quick boats shoot ahead
its not a picnic at Alum bay club
its horses for coures.

I think that's a bit of a shame really Roy - I'm not a picnic person but when joining a club it would be nice to feel I can enjoy the membership as much as anyone else - it certainly wasn't clear on joining that it was a racing club first and foremost or indeed non inclusive

I'll have to think if I wish to remain a member based on your do's and don't s as I'm sub 6m not fussed about racing from A to B and keen to be inclusive in my hobby

No problem with horses for courses but perhaps it should have been clearer the type of horse power you need

Thanks for the insight though much appreciated

Anyway for 65 now starting to feel a little nervous - also the RIBs I can see all look rather big and shinny with large HP's - have a horrible feeling I may have just joined a rather elite RIB club - bugger

Reassurance please - or would I have been better off organising my own adventures here on Ribnet for others to join in with and spending my 65 on treating you all to a pint

If there are any BIBOA members at Ribnet - would be great to hear how you are finding it and advance apologies if I have offended in my first impressions

You mean the Scorpion owners club?

So I seem to be learning Chewy - perhaps not so much Scorpion but bigger than my wonderful Searider

Will you be asking for a refund?
You could put it towards a down payment on a new Scorpion.
