So i have to say that in my eyes HMS is a big I.... and people like this make me sick and angry. If everyone that got a little critic should have acted like that, the solilicitors would have a lot of work. But of course some people fell that they are above other people and are more important than others in this world. Sorry dont you know how i am? im Hugo M S and if you say or publish somthing bad about me, i will sue your ass!

There is now wonder there is war in this world.

If only hafe of the stories on the board about HMS is true, i guess he has a good fanatasi making stories - it wasn't me - and i guess he has a good deal with solicitors firms.

Sorry to tell you HMS it seems like you are a unpopular man at this board at the moment.

And like other have said i will never again buy RI.
I agree.

Thought I'd share the content of the email I just sent in reply to RIB Int. asking me to renew my subscription.



Dear Mr Riseley

I will not be renewing my subscription, I have been extremely disappointed with the publication for the following reasons.

No real world Ribs that most of us can afford.

Lack of technical features.

Content repeated and re-hashed, even over the 1 year I have subscribed.
How many times can that RIB be launched over the side of that slipway?

The amateur standard of the written articles.

The inaccuracies in the written articles. Somebody should purchase a map of Scotland etc.

The blatant misuse of feature boats for the editor and his family to go cruising in at MY expense.

I honestly feel a great opportunity is being missed by the team at RIB Int. to deliver a magazine that would be purchased regularly by many more RIB owners, I'd be very interested in how many subscribers do not renew their subscription.

In summery, I'd say my experience of RIB Int. has left me with the impression it is put together by a bunch of amateurs who are completely out of touch with the RIB scene, and are only producing the magazine to obtain the use of the boats they are lent for articles.

I'd imagine you will not want to publish this correspondence, or perhaps you will be asking your legal representatives to reply on your behalf.




Don't suppose I'll even get a response.

Dear Mr Kennett,

A fine, upstanding member of this revered forum has drawn to my attention that, with malice aforethought, my reputation has been called into question in a thread that you published herein. Therefore, it is with the deepest regret that I must inform you that I have passed my complaint into the hands of the solicitors recommended by the Boatmad community.
I believe that Fleece, Grabbit and Sue will be contacting you shortly to explain my position in this matter. I can assure you that I intend to use the full weight of the English legal system to pursue my claim for damages.
I would like to make it clear that I am not and never have been a Nobba………….

There isn't one, and no I haven't.

I have very little tolerance of solicitors who have the arrogance to act as if they are the law, confuse their opinion with fact, and make silly unenforceable demands. To be honest, I think that DF&M Beckman Solicitors come out of this looking even worse than Hugo Montgomery Swan does.

Anyway, I think that this thread has probably gone on long enough as the comments do seem to be a bit negative. Probably better to go back to talking about RIBs!

I gotta be honest however and say that if somebody indicated I was a thief I'd be well pissed off and the changing or deleting of the thread would have been the right thing for the lawyers to request! I am also sure that could have been sorted out with a phone call from Hugo to the JK albeit an irate one, but I can see why the Solicitors were involved. The fact that the solicitors came on so heavily just makes an unfortunate situation comical

If one is really really pissed off however with RI the the best way of registering your complaint is to explain why you have cancelled your subscriptions in a leter with a link to this thread and send it to the Ad managers of the companies that take out big adverts in RI. 42 registrered letters with contents similar to Nashers falling on Yamaha's desk would surely make Hugo think twice before he attempts to bully us again!

It would certainly enhance the politics of buying advertising space and cause Hugo some disruption which will make him think twice before he send the 'boys ' around to JK's again

JK if this input is inflamatory to the situation the please delete it
