Time (not) well spent !

Well these lines have been somewhat long-winded, our new associates (friends another time, one day, maybe?) Splodge and Mr Digler certainly have come in with a different agenda to that of the many others who have joined this forum.

After spending an hour or more (it feels like 4hrs) last night reading 12+ pages that had suddenly appeared, I have to wonder why, (if you are into full on speed boats and appear to be using technical jargon about x height as if it were Buzzi in person) the question was so vague.
I have done a few technical things, but not many and as far as that question went, X marks a spot, somewhere in the universe if you add Y & Z !!!

If I had a problem with engine height and thought that it could be solved by the experianced regulars here, then I would have given far more details, prob half of it not being relavant.

Alternatively I would ask the manufacturer of the boat or the engines or someone else that most probrably ask 20 qestions to attain more facts.

Why the resistance to allow us to assist. It looked bogus to me!

OK perhaps some of this this view is a little harsh, but then why have we started to compare a 40ft buzzi with a 7 meter RIB.

Chalk and Chease. Apples and Pears.

I can't say I have been to the Channel Islands at 40+ knots (it was a very smooth 8knts down hill on a 40' yacht).

If you want to get there fast, great, choose a pencil hull, add big engines and hey presto a speedboat for smooth to moderate conditions at high speed.

If you want to get there and back (and still be able to use your back) then a steady 20 -30 knots with a Tea break is rather nice and it can deal with some weather.

Most ribs are not designed to do 40+ knts to get to another country, unless you are a criminal or chasing one.

Though the excelent housekeeping cleaned up the site and a culpriate removed (for exactly what, I don't need to know), I was left dissapointed at times through the mind games going on.
I hope it serves a purpose to encorage us to maintain what I think is a very good forum, with standards.

I hope that all us grown up's can now carry on as before in polite, but not dull, conversation.

Merry Xmas
Peace and goodwill
etc etc

Yep I agree in total,

I believe John K was away and these guys must of thought lets wind everybody up,Thats old news now.

You are right this forum has been most helpful to me and Im sure others,in ways that ,even viewers of threads can learn a lot about a specific item withought haveing to ask a question or get involved.


But I could get very boreing on this subject,so If possible if anybody can post any imformation on Cabin Ribs on this thread I am personally very interested.

It proberbly is the only thing our pals inadvertantley did right.

Hi Dirk,


Are you know going to be nice,and no more the Mr Know it all,if your generaly intersted in Ribs there are loads on here that will help you, and explain all they know.

You obviousley have some experiance but dont underestimate some of these peoples experiance on here and some of it may be of use to you.

There are some people that have done thousands of miles out at sea and others that dont even own a boat yet,but all will help.

I feel if your interested, I for one will assist and Im sure others will.

You dont want to be a lonely old powerboater, but you got to give us all the benefit of doubt.

Im glad your back and tell me any decent offers on that boat of yours, .

That was a joke.All the best for new yr and if you have any decent imfo on Cabin ribs Im interested,in your ideas,I may not exept them as facts untill I look into them.

I see the interest has gone over towards cabin ribs . How about this one being a Parker 750 fitted with a Mercruiser D4.2L diesel and Bravo 3 drive . On inland waters it can reach up to a speed of 40 knots

Yes I believe there is one of these in the Isle of Sky,it was at Ribex 2002,on the hard.

Seems it was waiting for its MCA coding tests,and I believe it now takes sightseeres round Sky.

Not sure what Work boat MCA codeing it got maybe Yellow code 20 miles?
