With our new xs 550 due in Feb, starting to look at names. How did you name your beloved (RIB)??

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.

'Stevie Rayvon' Avon 5.4
'Bugle Billy' Avon 8.4
'Wake Up Call' Scorpion 6.5
'Wont Get Fooled Again' Camel Ribtec

My next boat is gonna be called Dynamo Hum or Freebird

There was a sailing cat in Emsworth called "Cathy's Mink" which was replaced by a bigger one called "Cathy's Sable".

I can only asume that Cathy does not know about the boats.

Boats I have sailed on include:-

Freelance, owned by a journalist
Prime Cut, owned by a butcher
Protem, owned by a solicitor
Warp Factor I to VI inc., owned by a prat
Xaviera, a Hustler 32 named after Xaviera Hollander aka "The Happy Hooker".

Hope that these add to your inspiration.

Saw an excellent dive RIB named Unnecessarry Faff, we appreciated the bravery of this step and went over to talk to them, apparently it is actually on all dive RIBs but is usually in invisible ink!
