Well what a debate ............ I have only met said Mr Priddy on one occasion which was Ribex earlier this year along with a couple of his crew members.
Whilst he dismissed me and then took a demonstrator of ours out for a spin leaving me on the quayside ! I see why some of you draw to conclusion an opinion of a person. but hey being proffessional person I am ,
Personal viewpoints should remain personal should they not ?
Regardless of all peoples thoughts of why it happenned and boy have i heard a few
such as 4th time round blah blah blah ,whales , all asleep ....took all sponsors kit off first.............hit iceland ......insurance special......Mortgage payment due .....yeah yeah yeah whatever.
Alan there are simply many people who for wahtever reason want to knock you most though , many who are from this forum are to scared to print their viewpoints !
I am new to the Rib sector of the boating world although I have been in the marine industry as a skipper for many years .I still have the deepest respect for the achievements you have made. I too have made numerous translantic crossings and experienced most things and I can relate to things going wrong.
As some of you may be aware we too have just finished a trip in our own Parker Rib ( see baltic cruise ) and whilst conditions were favourable things could have easily gone the other way.Would you all have said the same about us ?
I have never read and heard such a load of drivel and dross in all my life. I guess many who criticise this guys achievments have never crossed a duck pond yet alone been to sea.
I do not want to side with the said Mr priddy as I have my own personal viewpoints which shall remain that way however regardless of what this guy does , has done , you cannot take a viewpoint with out being there first hand and understanding.
Instead of heckling from the stalls get out there and do it yourselves !
Whoops ..........just fell off my soapbox
Now on the Subject of parker Ribs Mr Priddy ........can I quote you on a new one ?
