Choose a name the coastguard will understand easily when you call them up. Simple, clear and crisp.

Someone in BIBOA has a Ribcraft with a nice smooth sounding Evinrude 175, also with green tubes and called Kermit - same person/new boat?

These superstitions are amazing... I must admit that I've kept to the rule "never wear green to sea" as I avoid even green underwear when out on the RIB! Also see: http://www.boatmadforum.co.uk/showth...=&threadid=657

There are some more old fisherman's superstitions - one that grabbed my attention is that if a fisherman ever saw a priest on the way to the boat, he would go back home and start the journey all over again.

Just a thought Neal - is your RIB un-named at the moment? Changing a boat's name opens up a whole new set of superstitions!

Richard, no don't think so, this was a BWM and Evinrude 115 hp. Tubes fell off on the way to Jersey, didn't think ribs could sink. Well this one did a pretty good impression of sinking and came home all the way across the channel held together with some bathroom sealant. Funnily enough they did stick close by.

Hard life for the Irish fisherman...

Now Johnathon, this is us talking about ribs, not you trying to wind us up, for once.

And please note I don't run a tea shop in the channel islands so am unlikely to throw a teddy bear.

Yes, same person & new boat. Chap called Brian who hails from Hertfordshire. He used to have the BWM 18 Kermit. He sold the BWM a couple of years ago and replaced with a 6.8m Ribcraft with custom console. Nice boat, well sorted. No idea what happened to the original kermit. Brian organised this years BIBOA Thames cruise (& I think si doing the same next year.)
