power boats V ribs PG adults only

Just thought this might be an interesting topic .No sociel workers allowed on this thread.

Im of the oppinion that most Power boats have there limitations in comparison with ribs up to approximatly 35ft long.

They dont handle bad wether well ,dont have the built in saftey factors that a offshore rib has,most offshore hard boats roll like pigs in a bit of a swell or dont go out if its looking like a force 6.?

In true "Jon Fuller" style I'm going to reply to my own message :

If someone doesn't want to go out in a force 6+ and rather keep the ice bucket topped up that this there choice and doesn't mean they are bad people or their boats are rubbish.

What kind of message does this thread give to a powerboat user passing by ?

I can't see myself buying a hard boat but doesn't mean I wouldn't want to accept a lift in one, unless its an OCR boat in which case all those people are mentally ill and have left their brains at quay side

Cheers

Mark

Don't you think we have enough animosity within the boating fraternity?

It is a very big ocean out there and there is plenty of room for everyone.

Incidently I was rescued by a gin palace when the mast snapped on my windsurfer in a force 7 of the witterings some years ago.
So was very gratefull for the help especially as the skipper was trying to get home safely himself.

Should'nt we be encouraging better relations with all boaters as we all have a love for the sea.

Lets keep ribnet for ribbing. not dross comments that stirs things up!

It is horses for couses, no pun intended.
