Dear Mr Keith Hart

Saw the message, why don't you give Hugo a ring instead of posting a message for him on here, I am sure he would be most happy to discuss any ideas you may have. Hugo's number is 01884 266100

Please do bear in mind though that our Nov/Dec editorial has already been written by our contributors, so any article would only be considered in the Jan 2003 one onwards.

Cheers

Hi Kempy

Thanks. I've telephoned Hugo and discussed it with him. I'll be submitting the article within the next month.

So, Keith, I trust you are treating us all with the earnings from your journal at the annual rib.net circus?!

Articles for RIB Intl

Hi Hugo,

I noticed in a recent post on this thread that you welcomed articles from Ribsters.

I have sent you a few ( unsolicited) articles in recent months by email , but never even got an acknowledgement.

I now write a monthly "Safety" Column for a new Irish Powerboat magazine called Motorboat and Leisure http://www.motorboatandleisure.net/

My offer still stands !

Best wishes ,

Stuart

Jo, Hugo Toby

Welcome to the forum, out of interest why are you trying to pull this discussion out of the Public forum and into Private telephone calls.

This is how the hundred or so of us enthusists communicate, if you are genuinely interested in our opinions why don't you start a thread asking for ideas.. It would serve two purposes, a it would divert attention from this possibly derogatry thread (spell Cjesker pleae JK) and give you some constuctive ideas to work on

This thread all started because I suggested that a photo shoot of an engine change in a boat would be worthy of an article in RI, I admit it was a little tounge in cheek as Mike and I had a discussion previously about the magazine. I didn't however realise realise the depth of feeling this forum had on the subject.

I believe that competition is the only true way to change a poduct or service, but I am pragmatic enough to accept that the burgeoning RIB market is not yet ready to support 2 magazines

But the fact remains I would prefer to see a detailed description and photoshoot of an engine swapout than read about the Cruise Control on a Volvo 4*4 unless we are talking about 4 Volvos installed in a RIB.

That's my sivpeneth and I suspect I am worth listening to as I am a died in the wool Punter, I have bought and equipped three ribs in two years and am just working on our 4th , surely I must be exactly the type of fool your advertisers want to reach.

Regards
Stuart

RIB International

Dear Wavehumper

In response to your quote about why we are trying to get people to contact us directly by phone....because we are RIB International Magazine and this is Rib.net, two completely different things. If you want to talk to someone about your criticsms about RIB International you should be talking direct to the person(s) involved rather than talking behind their backs.
If people want to put their ideas forward about the magazine you won't get anything done by just "moaning" and "Whinging" about us on here.
Re the 4x4 thing, over 70% of our readers drive a 4x4 vehicle and therefore we do think it of great relevance to our readers. Don't you have one Stuart? I thought I saw it on Round Ireland once or twice?
You are very much worth listening to, don't think your not but we cannot listen to you when its mere mutterings on here.

Greetings Kempy, Ref your comment that 70% of your readers drive a 4x4 so it makes it relevant. Sorry but I disagree. I drive a 4x4 but if I want to read about them I'll buy a 4x4 mag. I buy RI to read about ribs. You could quote percentages of what your readers do for ever and a day e.g. 90% of ribbers eat too many fryupps.( Not referring to you Mr. Hart). Lets see an article on greasy spoon cafes then. Exaggeration, yes, but the same principal. As for" moaning and whinging" on this forum not getting anything done, again I disagree. Hasn't it made you think? Understandably, you are upset by some of the criticisms, some of which are unfair, but most are honest opinions, from genuine people without an axe to grind,of which, you have the freedom to either take note of or ignore as you choose. Regards David.

Also sent by Email.

Kempy

The thing I find hard to understand is why you never mentioned any thing about Alan Priddys round the world attemp in the magazine. We all know Alan and indeed he has written articles for Rib International. His exploits could have filled the entire magazine with information that we are all interested in. It seems that you had no interest in his adventure. You should look at what Alan has achieved over the past 15 years. He has helped put ribs at the forfront of the boating world.
