You and Puller would've had fun. He was quick, but the mean streak was mean.

Hi guys just checking in from crete, the ribbing here is great ... Not quite a good as the ribs in the Deep South of the US but good nonethe less.

To be frank I knew nothing of ribs prior to May this year then researched .... I need a family rib not a thunderdog or a helmets required rib. It's a bit like .... Maserati or bmw or Skoda .....I will always go Maserati quirky but good underneath you just need to be converted .....open your minds...

Yer! He had you well corralled...

I roll around Boatmad a bit - he seems to have mellowed a tad.

Or something.

So looking for tips and any insurance recommendations. I get it on the 23 Aug so a bit of time yet to sort the bits and bobs out.

Looking forward to getting on the water!!

Hi Max, good luck with your Brig.

We are in our third season with our 5m Brig and have had a lot of fun with it on Anglesey - near Holyhead on the naughty North coast.

Generally very happy with the boat and have been right around the island more than once and done nearly 500 miles in her.

Hope to see you on the water sometime!
