Hardboat v Rib (again)

Continuing the never ending argument over which type of boat is best, there is an article, written by two authors, in the last issue of Sportsboat and Rib magazine. The first section is pro rib, written by Paul Mahy, (obviously a witty, intelligent journalist who knows his stuff). The second section is pro hard boat written by Simon Everett, who also writes for Rib International. I wonder if 'Simon Everett' is a pseudonym for a well known devotee of the hardboat who frequents this forum. The twaddle seemed remarkably similar.

Can anyone confirm if JF has a secret occupation?

That's strange. There was another forum member who claimed to do that but the last I heard, he had managed to amass five red blobs which results in immediate banishment to Boatmad. Get ready to welcome Codprawn. (and Manos).

Anyway, back to the point. Have you ever written any articles that have appeared in print?

I would love to see some examples of WHY I have been red blobbed - even when I have said NOTHING to justify it!!!!

BTW thanks Mr Fuller!!!
