The results of the poll (which is small, but amongst his target readership) should make the publishers think a bit.

What happens now JK?

Keith (?) Hart

He did after RB4 'cos he posted in a huff about those that knocked it. And those that went on it and knocked it after the event.

Not sure he's bothered about what we think at all IMHO. He has a nice little earner with no competition so why worry?!

Hi Chaps

After chatting with the Honda stand at the boat show, they quoted.

"That Hugo Montgomery-Swim chap - You always seem to get a good write up if you advertise with him"

Hi All

Must strongly disagree with the above, I have followed Rib International for many years now and have never found Hugoís Boat reviews to be hugely inaccurate. If you actually read his reviews, between the lines you can decipher his genuine opinion. If you ever read the Dash round up after he used it for a season a couple of years ago you would have to agree.
There are other magazines out there that only write nice things for their advertisers and pretty much offer this if you advertise with them. I can say Rib International is not one of them.

Graeme (and others)

I've looked into the voting problem and it turns out to be to do with how the AOL browser handles cookies. This will be sorted when I upgrade the forum software, but I don't intend to do that any time soon.

If you want to vote, either use a proper ISP or email me your vote and I'll add it manually!

As Ribcraft is arguably the RIB manufacturer closest allied to RIB International, a more cynical person than me might think you are just being nice to them. Obviously I wouldn't suggest that for a moment . . .

Well I suppose you could think that if you were really cynical. Long and short of it, I donít think you can buy a good review from HMS with an advert as suggested above.

Iím sure the Rib Int team will be reading this thread, so why donít people come forward with constructive criticism and suggestions?

Jace

P.S. Must post more often, John will you be bringing out an official Rib.Net handbag?
