Cyber-friends reunited!

Always good to put some faces to Ribnet user-names, primarily to convince yourself that you're not really a sad social misfit who spends long hours chatting with cyber-friends in internet chat rooms!

Ian (NWRibsters) made the trip down from Stockport with wife Debbie and with the help of mobile phones we effected a lunch time rendezvous at the Guiness bar with some of the Ribnet 'locals'. Pictured from left to right, by Ribnet user-name, are: Daniel, Jools, Ian, myself and Suzuki 416.

Never seen 'myself' on the forum, who is he. Looks suspiciously like Phil (I made it this time) Davies!

It was good to meet up with some of the names on here. Met Charles later in the day as well.

Great show, and DM, prices weren't any different to those in Abersoch!

By special request...

Ian has asked me to attach this photo of the new Suzuki 250hp V6 so everyone on Ribnet can see what his new engine looks like when he takes delivery of his new Prosport with aforementioned engine in March. That's just in case any of you had missed one of several dozen references made to it by Ian during the last six months, during which time of course he has not owned a RIB. I should also add that Jono is having two of these engines fitted to his soon to be built Prosport - just in case there are one or two individuals on Ribnet who hadn't heard that either.

Not keen on the twin blade prop. But thank you for posting that Philip. I suggest you read, carefully and slowly, the PM I have just sent and then E-MAIL the photo to me as requested, not post it here!

I notice your local engine dealer in the background is making a suitable gesture in your direction. That'll make two of us next time we meet.

Here at last!

Stop press! The new Evinrude E-Tecs have finally arrived on these shores - well they will have by the end of January anyway. Importer Jets Marivent had the new 40, 50, 75 and 90 E-Techs on their stand and very well put together they looked too. Very pretty styling, particularly the 40/50hp models and very compact physical dimensions.

Strangely, the new 60hp has not been released yet, although it's probably safe to assume it's for 'technical' reasons. The 60 is the same block as the 40 and 50 and they all weigh 106kgs, which makes the 60's power to weight ratio extremely impressive! No scheduled dealer maintenance for 3 years and no running-in period, due to ultra high quality internal components apparently. Feedback from the recent European dealer launch in Spain and from Australia and the US, where the engines have been on the market since October, suggests that the E-Tech concept is a potent force to be reckoned with, although of course the real quality test will be a year or more down the line.

No Jon, this was the bucket of pebbles that PD, on numerous occasions, put his foot in and rolled them all over the stand.

Just can't take him anywhere
