Cynical, moi
I think your wrong PD - everyone knows that jollies and freebies in a Searider
held together with duct tape and bungee cord is about the most fun you can
have on the water ! unless of course you had some agreement with a Rib manufacturer to "test" their products

So in reply to that u are off the mark if thinking I wanted a rib magazine , not having a pop mate as some features I've enjoyed it was an overall view on mag

A few of us on here have some ribs that are being restored at the moment.

Ribcraft 3.5
Avon Searider SR4
Avon Searider SR4.7 Mill spec
Ribcraft 4.8

All of the above will be ready around the same time and probably look as good as new.

All engines are either new or as good as

A couple of interesting things are that these are all still available new I believe? And it would be good to finally get a SR4.7 and a RC4.8 together to answer that longstanding question, which is the best rib under 5m???

Cheers Alex - exactly the kind of stuff I was interested in.
Be great to get that lot together on the water and compare.
