Hi I've called my Rib "Nauti Buoy", took a while to come up with it, sat on Poole Quay. When you come up with name and if you want it cut out of Vinyl Adhesive Letters to any size/colour let me know and I will gladly sort this out for you foc of course!!

My last boat was "Aries II" - You'll never guess why ...

OK perhaps you might - my first boat was "Aries". Now there's a surprise!

Actually, it was a Zodiac MK II GT. Since it had to be a short name (short boat) and "Aries" is a sign of the Zodiac, it seemed like a good idea!

My Scorpion - the ordering of which was stopped in its tracks (on medical advice) was to have been called "Quick One". Given that it would have had a monster engine, it seemed like a good name.

I hope to review RIBing in perhaps 2-3 years, when (hopefully) I can convince my doctor that it really would be good for me!

Until then, I will use my former "tender" on fair days and take up caravanning. At least I have a good excuse for buying the VW Touareg! The low ratio gear could come in handy on the steep hills in Cornwall but I'm not sure that the 'van will fit down some of its narrow roads!

Happy boating!

Chris.

My boat is one of the fastest boat in the country and was specially ordered Ferrari red and obvious name for her was "Rauša eldflaugin" translated Red Rocket/Missile.
