I live in Cowes and I'm not bothering to go. Last year was a waste of time, IMO.

I can't really see the point of making it RIBfest either. I don't associate RIBing with music. I suspect a bit of ego-massaging (Swans In Flight) going on. :

I agree to us (RIB.net) getting involved and having a more informal meet-up. My brother organises an informal Caterham 7 meet on the Island every year and people LOVE IT. 90 cars this year.

Andy

a good few of us already have meets, but by the time you've arrange a date that everybody agree's to you've lost the will to live, my dogs having a shampoo that day, i'm watching something on tele, not heard of i player yet, my wife can't make that day, i'm waiting for a parcel from ebay or what ever, i agree we are a long time dead and need to do more, i've already done cherbourg and doing geurnsey in july, a week in june cruising about, of coarse local stuff happens the whole year round, it's the last freedom i have without anybody getting in my way and i'm going to do more this year, i'll post them when i'm going and you're welcome to come but i'm not altering any dates, priory bay springs to mind, when you all agree a date on that let me know

Keep up biffer! The dates were set a couple of days ago - 18/19 June

Does that fit into your dog shampooing schedule?

In addition, Solent RIBS secured the opportunity to supply RIBs for the London 2012 Olympics as a direct result of the show.
Whatever.

ribex

Also had a look on sunday arfternoon and parted with the cash only to have some stupid woman try to attach a rist band to me i dont think so
Once inside it became clear that the stands were down on last year
Wonderd over to the sea wall to look down at the jetties and that was the same story
If not for the visitors boats on the far side things would of looked a lot thiner

Rather sad really to see it because it could be a lot better arfter all there is plenty of room for chandlers stands and nautical nick nacks right back to gates where you walk in
So come on Mr Monty Swan pull your bloody finger out and lets have a proper boat show

So Tim you were the wise one and i the disappointed one
