Scroll down the page and you will see an option to "Show Printable Version". Click on this, then File : Print and you're there.

Alternatively click the next link and just email them an invitation to come over and see for themselves.

No, I didn't. You made it well. Being, on occasions a pedant, I am apt to spell out the blindingly obvious.

And you're right about a BIBOA section.

But I'm not getting drawn into telling a publisher who has built himself a nice little earner how to please that section of his customer base upon which the longevity of his magazine is dependent. If his readers desert then the advertisers won't be far behind.

Then someone else will have a go and, with any luck, do a half decent job.

We are all up early today aren't we!

If anyone is prepared to write the type of articles that they would like to see, then I will be happy to find a home for them in the features section!

The second part of Paul's article on rough water handling is now up, and I've got another from him which will be added shortly (quicker than the last one, anyway!)

Something else that we could consider is making "proper" articles from some of the more interesting and enlightening forum threads.

We must be two of a kind on that one!

When's your new RIB magazine coming out then, Mike?

Having only just spotted this thread I thought I should take a few words to agree with most of what’s been said.

I, like most it appears, subscribed to RI ‘coz there was nothing else and I could not find it locally (although it seams this is almost intentional???). I wish I hadn’t.

I don’t like to be overly critical of anyone trying to do something well, but this is a commercial publication and I am quite sure I could do a better job myself (ie without a publication team) without any prior knowledge of magazine or press in the TWO months between issues.

Who ever mentioned the lack of proof-reading – that REALLY niggles me too.

Sorry HMS, and the RI team – it’s not on – introduce a readers letter (good idea) section and we will tell you so…
…could that be why there isn’t a one of these?

Surely someone must have something good to say about RIB International! It's not that bad is it?

Don't be shy just because of Mike Garside's ranting. If you're a RIB International fan, then let us know.

Let's see if we can get some balance to this discussion . . .

John
