Powerboat & Rib Magazine

Im in a grumpy mood today, why is it that I subscribed to this magazine in may this year on the premis that subsrcibing would be a good idea, thinking I would get early copy of mag etc and yet I still haven't got the latest through my door but I could buy one over the counter at a local newsagents or my local marina shop and the digital version is still not online. Bahh Humbug ... Mr Grump

Don't judge, the guys that post them out have been busy on a jolly challenge around Ireland this month. Even the guy who won the race had major sponsorship from the likes of Mazda was a day late finishing… things will just be a bit slower this month, probably!

Me too, and there was never a unbiased review in the magazine.

Completely appreciate that print media works by getting companies to advertise, but they never even make a decent review of kit or boats

They've got David Marsh writing for them now which should be interesting. Of course the smart move would be to make him the editor but I can't see that happening any time soon!

LOL, I like it .... maybe what we need is a Ribnet magazine, with people from ribnet submitting articles etc, maybe quarterly, might be fun ?

Could include comeptitions, pics of the ugliest rib, the best project rib done up, top tips, etc etc
