General question for all readers

Can you guys tell me weather ribbing is predominantly a Blokey thing our do many of you guys get out with the family or maybe just the wife? I just don't want to dash along with the missus for her to be out of place.

The first time I took the missus out in moderate conditions, she was terrified after 300 yards. Flat calm on a sunny day or a river cruise to York for lunch is a different story.

If your other half is used to fishing trips and other boating, she will be ok if it gets a bit lumpy. My wife had never been on a small fast boat of any kind and didn't know what to expect.

Only just bought rib and only done one run with other ribbers . My wife did power boat course with me and we did the nacho run with a friendly helpful lot . Think there were 16 ribs that day mainly blokes but not all . There were other women and some kids as well , we did it with our two teenage girls and did not feel out of place .

Most of my ribbing is done with my wife, son's family and grand children. Maybe a couple of weekends a year I will have 'boys only' trips. Very ocassionally I will go long trips on my own.

My wife loves going out in the Rib but it needs to be for a reason, this year we are planning Kinloch Castle on Rum, Eigg and Knoydart Music Festivals and possibly a run to Applecross for a bar lunch.

She's not up for rough weather/sea or just being out for the sake of being out.

She's asked for some appropriate clothing for going out so she's taking it more serious.

I think that you will find that most of us bring the wife and kids along while out ribbing my kids are grown up so its just the wife with me but we do have the occasional "lads camping, ribbing/sibbing trip trip" organised but even then you could bring the wife along for general cooking and washing up duties
