How big is yours?

Polls, what a great idea Jools, thanks.

Here's mine.

What is the average size of a RIBNET users boat? Do we all have big ones? Are there any other samll ones? Lets find out folks.

Poll away.

Cheers

Keith (always open to a new idea) Hart

Hi Brian

You can blame Jools for these polls. It is good though. THREE ribs over 9m so far! TWO in the 3-4 m range. I feel like Robinson Crusoe when he found the footprint, I'm no longer alone!

As for the Orkney trip see this site: http://www.caithness.org/pentlandfirth2/ (mentioned in Orkney trip posting. It seems it may be an interesting trip.

I have looked at that thread Keith.
They are just trying to scare you!!
Pick your day and your time and you will be across before you finish your first bacon roll.
PS Always remember, you are already sitting in your liferaft so what the heck!

Brian, have you ever seen just how QUICK I can eat a bacon roll?

Hey, I never thought of it that way before. Skip the big boat and go straight for the safety of the liferaft. I'm the safest one on RIBNET!

28 out of 46 (so far) in the 4-5 and 5-6 m ranges. Three in the 3-4m range. I know that one of the tiddlers is mine, I would think one is TomKat (Jools), so who is number 3?
