Then how are we suppose to learn, If these pioneers don't share thier experiences with us.
What's bad is certain others posting on here with misleading info.
Barry sounds like a highly experienced person to me, who could probably teach us a thing or two. so he gets my vote.

Can't wait to hear more tales from the deep blue. and his boat is very nice too.

One of those nice chaps who live in darkened rooms peering at monitors constantly scanning Ribnet for spammers and other nasty people has kindly split the rib racing thread off to this fred:

Remembering rib racing - the early years

So back to Carson ribs which incidentally seem to be the weapon of choice for Sea Start on the south coast. The value of a cabin rib and some protection was brought home to me when Martin and Anto Curry and I arrived in Guernsey after a long slog against the wind and tide from St Malo. We met Nick from Sea Start outside the harbour entrance in his new Carson cabin rib. We despite wearing full waterproofs were soaked. He was wearing jeans, a light Helly Hansen top and held a mug of steaming hot coffee. Martin and I looked at each other with the same thought, we need cabin ribs.


Ribnet is best viewed on a computer of some sort
