My two pennies worth:

1) do not use the word Quarterly in title, restricts the number times you could publish, you might want to do it every two months!

2) Do we not Drive RIB's not Ribs?, and some people who will read it will be using SIB's.

i know cant please everybody...

Strictly speaking we drive RhIBs. RIB's would be something belonging to the RIB (e.g. the RIB's engine).......

All joking aside, a PBO type mag for ribs would be worth buying.

How does that work then...?

Isn't a RIB like what we would nowadays call a SIB? I remember that chap from Humber had a good 3 stage definition on here.. I think that he put it that technically:

A SIB is an inflatable boat with a soft floor or air floor hull type thing
A RIB is an inflatable boat with a solid floor something like a Zodiac Futura thingymabob with an aloominum floor
And finally a RHIB is a solid hull with an inflatable collar round the edge like that what we call a rib...

Or something like that

LOL , sorry but as one was told by wise person:

Punctuation is the difference between “I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse” and “I helped my uncle jack off a horse”.

I should remember that!

Nope. A SIB is an inflatable which may have a floppy floor, a rollaway floor, an air deck, or removable floorboards. It may have a solid floor, but doesn't have a solid hull.

A RIB is a boat with a solid hull and inflatable tubes. A bit like what we'd call a RIB.

I agree that a "rigid inflatable boat" isn't really a good term for modern RIBs, as they are definitely more rigid than inflatable. Calling them RHIBs isn;t the answer though - it's an ugly word only used by Americans who don't know any better.

I'll be back in a bit with a proper answer about the magazine stuff . . .

Yes I agree that what we all use day to day is fine but the three things I listed before are what it technically ought to be and used to be the common terminology when RIBS and SIBS where in their infancy?? I'll have a look for the tread with the Humber guy argueing this...

The best thing would be to have a SIB section in the RIB mag.
