I would be most interested in such a magazine! Even if I know that the exchange rate is going to be murderous!

Glen a good idea if it is a magazine not a web item and stays true to its origins rather than sell out to its advertisers .i do not advertise because of the high prices and the atitude of rib international .a few years ago i asked hugo why he did not do an article on any of the smaller tube makers ,the reply was that Henshaws were the biggest and he didnt need to worry about anyone else !!as always i am available to give free advice on any tube repairs ,possibly even write articles although it will give you a headache sorting out the grammar and spelling

Cracking idea and I would buy it. I subscribe to SB&R but there are not enough articles about smaller (sub 6.5M) affordable RIB's but it is still a very good read. I'm a big fan of the Cookie man too! However, RIBnet will take some beating for information, unbiased opinion (well sometimes), help, friendship, and a bloody good laugh!

Following on from what Paul Tilley said, as a small manufacturer we also struggle to justify large magazine advert charges. Don't forget us (small guys) when you're trying to get decent advertising - not all of us build boats that are out of reach of anybody whose surname isn't Getty..........
