Rib International

Hurray, Decembers issue is now out and looks like they have found something interesting to write about at last. Yes it does have a 4 x 4 report but thats relagated to the back. Oh and the picture of the Pacific 22 on page 79 is back to front. However there are a series of articles that now demand my immediate attention. If they drop the 4x4 reviews I might even subscribe again.

Pete

So how did you know that, Pete? I guess that you know the boat?

OK - work this one out...

What's the (deliberate?) mistake with the picture on page 6/7

The prop turns "the wrong way" on a pacific stern drive, well if you are used to outboards anyway. Also the bilge pump is on the wrong side they are always on the Port side.

No, that's one of the few details that's correct!

Hmm, okay bear with me on this one:

The boat is owned by a Jewish family (nothing wrong with that). They have invited KH to do the round Ireland with them. Indeed you can see his sib on the back engine cover. However they will not allow him to fry up bacon butties on the boat. So being ingenious he dons his drysuit and lifejacket, and jumps in. Places his one man gas cooker on his tum and starts a fry up. He also took the pic whilst waiting.

Either that or because there are no children on board it must belong to flanker (or shouldn't I go there)

Strangely, you've got a little bit warmer!
