Oh Johnny Don't Stop

My girlfriend is studying pathology as it relates to clinical psycology and is compiling your posts for a class presentation. Something about feelings of being inadaquate, sociopathic disregard for others, delusions of grandeur, over compensation, likely accompanied by various neurotic deviant inclinations and as evidenced by a presumably grown man still being called and refering to himself as "Johnny", a significant lapse in the maturation process.

I've been rolling on the floor watching you sh1t your shortpants

She's clearly known me all my life! Especially the neurotic deviant inclinations.

BTW, 21 is not really a grown man.

Does that mean that if you could have afforded it, you'd have bought the hard boat?

A Revenger 27 with yanmar 315 is circa 60k, a 25' Extreme (same length hull) with the same motor, but including a full cabin, 'nice' upholstery etc is circa 40k. someones gettin ripped off!

So back to the real world. I have no use for a Revenger, which is why I'm looking at smaller useable boats, boats I can have fun in.
What I earn and what I spend my money on has nothing to do with this forum.
Looking at sub 20' boats RIBs are cheaper than hard boats, if I wanted a boat with a cabin I would buy one!

You still aint answered why the RNLI don't use hard boats for inshore lifeboats....

Coz they're not suited to the job, in the same way, that the average open rib, aint suited to going over 30knts, as per my first post on this thread!

Also, with most Lifeboat coxwains being virtualy incapable of driving a boat without bouncing off stuff, it probably saves a fortune in damage lawsuits.

The couple I've met, have been so inept at controlling a boat, it was shocking. So there ya go, a bit like American 5mph bumper laws, ribs is for poor drivers.

Lol, ALB's have coxswains ILB's have helmsman.
I take it you've never been to the Lifeboat College in Poole?
Still your obviously too good to be a Cowsain or Helmsman and will never need the RNLI because you are superior to everyone else.

You should go to your local station mate, they go out in weather you'd never dream of and come back again.

So if hard boats aint suited to the job surely that makes RIBs superior.

I won't tell you what I earn cause I don't want to embaress you.

Surely the answer is when at rest a RIB sits lower in the water so it is easier to people to get in from all around the boat,
RIBs hard boats its horses for courses RIBs are nice and safe ideal for familys, diving etc and hard boats are usally about performance, without carrying a puncture repair kit,
If you think about birds, would you want the real deal or would you want the blow up version.
If you had a 28 ft Rib parked next to Jons 28 Phantom its like Ferrari parked next to Volvo estate both are very good at different things carrying the family safely or getting the adrenaline rush,
P.S i have both the inflatable and the hard boats.
