Sitting here with a glass of wine I decided to check out Ribnet to see if there is any interesting new threads. I sat in complete shock whilst I read your "RIB International" poll vote and all the comments.
As the Advertising Manager for RIB International I cannot believe how some people can say "you only get editorial if you advertise". This is completely untrue and I feel hurt that you supposedly RIB loving people could be so mean. I personally worked night and day for 6 months for all you RIB people out there to enjoy a challenge around Ireland whilst raising money for the RNLI and so I cannot believe your attitudes.
I have never said to someone that "if they advertise they will get editorial".
When I joined RIB International and went to boat shows/RIBEX I always understood the RIB community to be "one" and thought everyone to be friendly and certainly glad that RIB International was there. If you have critiscms about RIB International why not tell us directly instead of giving us what feels like a huge stab in the back. We are there for the RIB community.
Comments about the supply of the Round Ireland land support vehicle are completely unjustified.
As Hugo has said earlier in this thread we are open to critiscm and we are big enough and ugly enough to take it. Be adults and grow up. Let RIB International know your thoughts!
LONG LIVE RIB INTERNATIONAL AND IF YOU'VE GOT A PROBLEM...LET US AT RIB INTERNATIONAL KNOW.
