maybe someone could help

Hi, people,

I am developing a site on motor boating, and a large part of the site will be about RIBs.
The problem is that there is almost no information on the issue on our Russian sites, so that the idea is to find good links in English and make it translated into Russian.
Maybe someone could provide me with some information on:

comparative outboards tests
introductory information
something interesting on the subject

And sometimes I have problems with English terms (espessially for RIB parts )

Sorry if I am talking insultingly, my English is rather poor

Hi Oleg
Suggest you have a go closer to home ie try the Polish Powerboat magazine "Przeglad Motorowodny" email address
redakcja@motorowodny.com.pl the editor`s name is Darek and I know he was thinking of spreading his wings into Russia, perhaps you could do something together. Tell Darek that you got his name from me.
I will send you a PM later

Hi again!
Thanks a lot for your answers, I very appreciate both the information I've got and the kindness with wich you provied me with it. As for ribbing in Russia... I tried to describe it below, but I think the text appears to be more in economics that in ribbing itself. But I tried, honestly It came to be such long that I couldn't read it the second time myself
It is about 3 years ago when RIBing come to Russia. The unofficial center for RIBing is St.-Petersburg, every year Neva river RIB racing takes place - "24 hours St.-Petersburg"<http://www.race24hours.ru>.I do not know exactly what is the main use for RIB's in Britain (I mean it could be commercial partly); in Russia people buy them only for fun. Boats from abroad are rather expensive for most people here; almost several small firms in Russia that products quality boats set high prices for it because of it exclusivity. Things are much worse withoutboards: there are 2 or 3 companies that make them, and they are awful. The price for foreign outboards is high: since, additionally to high prices for imported goods, importers have to pay high taxes (the government is protecting Russian industry with it. It would be better if they try to protect Russian consumer). So that the price for outboard of good quality is close to the price of "Zhiguli" (our most popular car). So that almost all RIB owners are people with the income much higher than average.
The most part of the population lives far from the sea, but there is a plenty of rivers; maybe inflatables are more popular than RIBs due to that fact.
Even in Britain the history of ribbing is not long; in Russia the only people who knows about it are from seaports like St.-Petersburg and Vladivostok (there are some exceptions but the tendency is clear from Moscow, which is far from any sea)
So that the purpose is to make a good portal where everybody could find an information on inflatibles, RIB's, outboards. To find a material that could help a freshman, to find more complicated issues, well, to make it interesting and helpful for everybody.
For example, it is a great need for comparative outboard of 15-50 hptests - all the attempts to find free information in RUnet or somewhere else have failed (Manos, thank you for your readiness to help! I am highly appretiate it).
I think that inflatibles and RIBs of 4 - 6 meters will be potentially popular there - they are good for rivers and lakes.
And it is plausible that inflatible catamarans will be of great popularity (something like zapcats). All the information placed on the site will be absolutely free (it is RUnet specifics - it is free of money in 99,99% ), if it is taken from somewhere there will be reference to the origin and to the author.


Thank you again, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Your English is E X C E L L E N T!!!!

Any way I have some tests of boats being British, Greek, Italian and South African made between 4-7 mtrs which I will be sending you bit by bit after the hols (with photos also).
I also have some tests for outboard engines but they are of higher bhp that you specified. The smaller is 50 bhp.
Any way I think that one of the mags in the UK it was either YMB mag (don't kill guys ) or the Practica boat owner or somethign any way had tests for engines used for SIBs so if anyone has this mag they mught be able to post to you some data.
Any way have a good Crhristmas and hopefully we will keep intouch in the New Year.

Cheers
