I've had an email from Andrew McLeod-Ross at BWM RIBs, who seems to be having trouble logging on to RIBnet at the moment.

He just wants to put the record straight:

I would like to say that since BWM was purchased from Paul Lemmer in 1998 BWM has been going strong. In fact it has so much on at the moment which is why we are not advertising. For your information BWM produces the "Animal RIBs" under license and they are very popular. You could have seen BWM on the Honda stand at the London Boat Show, and you will also be able to visit them on the Honda stand at the forthcoming Southampton Boat Show to see for yourself that BWM is still very much alive.

If anyone has any questions I'm hoping that Andrew will be able to post here shortly, alternatively you can contact him via their web site www.bwmribs.co.uk

John

You be careful Richard, someone might think BWM only make tiller-steered RIBS...

Big thank you to John Kennett who eventually held my hand and managed to get me logged on??

Richard I have noticed that you live in Reading - I own the Jetski lake there (Lagoona Park) perhaps you should pop in for a coffee (if you are passing) one day??
