Jackeen, BIBOA must be the most confused organisations in the whole world. Your site is not the one that my shortcut leads to. And when I key in BIBOA on Google I get. bleedin' 'ell, yet another site. I have to say, even though,I am a member of the esteemed body, this is one 'ell of an unfocussed heap of conflicting interest groups. Eh?

Well, BIBOA have a development officer.

Name of Mike Shelton.

What's funny here is that yate.org.uk points to BIBOA! Is there a connection?

And I notice from the "safety" page that we're supposed to be carrying EPIRBs. Hello!?!?

Well all they need to do now is get one of their many domain names to point to the website at yate.org.uk.

BIBOA.com, BIBOA.co.uk, BIBOA.org.uk, yate.org.uk

oh, not to mention http://www.rib.net/biboa/

Send a message via MSN to Alex Brown
yate.org.uk doesn't look to be that far geographically speaking (probably a 2metre cat5 patch lead) from www.yellowrib.co.uk
I may be wrong of course....

That's gone now. I only put it up in despair because there was no joining information on the "official" site . . .

Hi Richard,
with regard to your comment re EPIRBS, they're now cheap enough that I believe they can be included in a standard safety kit. I do a lot a sea kayaking and ribbing and always have mine strapped to my life jacket. A 121.5 MHz version can be had for just over a hundred quid, an all singing all dancing Satellite GPS version for under 500 (even this one is only just bigger than a mobile phone) I got mine from these guys : http://www.sartech.co.uk/.

cheers,
Bren
