Congratulations Richard.

Looking good! As you know, i have been following this from the start.

Full marks to Andre for the PR exercise at Ribex!

Full marks to Richard for taking the step to order this monster of a rib.

I have seen some of the pics of the build and from a distance it looks to be of the highest degree! I am sure its going to be a beast of a boat.

Not sure i can stretch to filling her up but i do owe you a few lunches at the moment Richard!

Calais to Port Solent

OK guys at last the rib is on the way to Calais and we all look forward to a great cruise back to the UK. The weather as I gather is not 100% perfect but this time of the year what can one expect. There is no turning back we are going.

The final names of those making the crossing are

Richard "Nauti Bouy"
Paul & Kathleen "Jackeens"
Mike C
Simon Everett
and myself

Simon will be conducting a boat test on behalf of Rib International and if one is going to carry out such test, isn't such a trip the perfect grounds for it.

Bogi had shown interest in joining us so if he gets himself to Calais on time there will be a seat for him.

Many thanks to all who have contributed to this interesting thread. My special thanks go to Zippy who, if he makes himself known to me at Ribex2007 or any other event we may attend, he will always get a special ride on a Parker Rib

Watch this space for details of our crossing

Richard, you must be well pleased.
Andre, congratulations to you and Parker.
10 weeks from order to delivery is very impressive for any bespoke boat.


I hope you all have a safe and enjoyable maiden voyage.

Have you got a MMSI yet? Maybe some of us could ping you a couple of position requests as you pass along the south coast.

Yes very pleased with the Rib so far, 10 weeks I think is very good going really, with no compromise to the quality either. Should be a good crossing back, have not got my MMSI number through yet, no doubt it will arrive on Saturday when we've already left!! We will be listening on Channel 77, Rib name Nauti Buoy (No Surprise there then)

who is the gArfish anyway?

Hehehehe

What a privilege being among such illustrious company. Thanks Nauti for having us along.

(We have spent weeks studying to get our 'Scurvy Crew' Kwallification. We've studied some Polish and all (not the Antiques Roadshow stuff but the proper lingo)!)

We have backup this and that and those as well!

Not sure if Richard will be able to adjust the trim enough to balance out

1) the Polish flag
2) the RIBnet pennant
3) the ensign
4) all the borscht and sausages

We have been informed that flares are not allowed on the ferry as they are classed as pyrotechnics by the jovial ferry capitaines!!!!!

Looking forward to this trip as one of the best we have been on Nauti & Andre! See ye tomorrow for an early start heading for Calais.

Kathleen & Paul

gArf stop watching your filthy fillums the rumours about Nauti and Andre are not true. At all, at all!!!
