Hopefully they won't go for the quick fix of more waterside properties but keep it to boat related businesses.

Would make a good location for Ribex in 2010 having all the manufacturers on one site without the problems of transporting everything across the water should be tempting whilst quite a coup selling second hand ribs alongside the show.

If you do , I suggest you see a doctor. I know things are tough where you live but that is not normal.
Can you post a pic. of yourself in your drysuit so we can make up some funny Xmas cards.

I'm sure Jonny Boys could manage to sub RIVA the required 100 out of the small change left over from the 10,000,000

quite happy to pay

if you can give stastistics, on benafits you know that.
or i can contra invoice for your boat storage in my yard remeber

yet again it does annoy me that for the sake of such a small amount of money the pack is on the hunt

i have not asked for buissness about this , i thought some hardened ribbers might like a look around at some point as its the home of some pedigree boats . FREE

a benafit to ribnetters FREE

i am sorry that you choose to see my good will gesture to ribnetters as a attempt to gain buissness. does anyone on here need a big shed ?

now i had acumilated again a large amount of flares and last year i gave them free to the ribber on here who has a paint ball buissness maybe i should ask him for the 100

and stop helping out some times !

I'm glad you agree it's a small amount. Why not just do the right thing and pay it?

Give over! It was nothing more than a plug for your new business venture.

Unless I've misunderstood and you're offering free use of the facilities?

no john you paid for a part storage , how many weeks ?

press releses are how you plug something ! not ribnet


and this is ment to be a talk about a historical site thats , going to be a bit of fun for somepeople to have a walk round . if they rent a few 000,sq feet whilst doing so exelent you will have got double doe

and i dont think ill need a sub !

its not the money its what i get for it ? if it was 1000 and i got enough buisness from it i would pay it ? example boats and outbords , google ,

god only knows how much i spend on google . well actualy he does as i say sweet jesus at every invoice , but i can atribute sales to it .

as soon as i can atribute sales to ribnet ill pay you but its chicken and egg you have to make it so i need to be there , and i dont at present .

if your saying that you want a contribution to its running costs , so you can stay at home and loook after it and make it bettter and better then thats diffrent .you need to ask all members under european law and ill pay it .no problem as i except this and have seen your costs.

but your asking me to make a comercial dessision based on no facts , or info

i am not being difficult, if it has buissness worth ill pay? if its a bit of a club ill pay with everyone else ?

If there is an organised gathering for RIBnetters around the grounds before it gets developed, then I would certainly be interested in comming along.

Have read through the various posts with interest & from my personal position I think RIVA was just making what I can only see as a quite a kind offer for poeple who are interested in boats a view at one of the regions most intersting & up till now closed off sites.

Surely any RIB business taking such a prime/ easy to access site can only bring posatives the whole market/ industry. In fact any company that holds a stock of used boats give much needed fluidity in the market. By investing hundreds of thousands of pounds in stock it means people can go off and can afford to buy new stuff, while others get the benefit of buying from a business & not individuals.

I lived & worked in Portsmouth/ Portsolent for a number of years & used to love watching 'things' appear on the site.

Yes it MAY end up in a POSSIBLE sale EVENTUALLY, but all very far fetched to show any formal commercial benefit.

I would guess & expect 99.9% of RIBNET users check ALL the boat sites looking for the 'next' boat( dreaming , thinking of ways to find more cash to spend on thier hobby ! ), with only a tiny few only finding ribsforsale site via ribnet ? Try Googling ribs for sale or rib sales & I think you will see ?

Just my humble individual opinion that wont agree with all, so apologies if I upset anyone .

Pete
