I personally think the advantages of subscribing far outweigh the minor drawback of having to wait a couple more days.

Yes, so we are all in agreement. Despite what the doomsday merchants say, I think RI has 'lifted its game' and produce a first rate magazine for the Rib market.

Finally.....

Jon & Nicola would like to announce the arrival of a new addition to the Whiting family.......

Rib International, weighing a few ounces, arrived on 16 May 2003.

Father doing well, mother resigned to non speaking husband for a few hours!

Have a nice weekend all.....poor forecast up here!

Ditto down here too - completely unsettled yet again

Just checked the boat, and in 24hrs, I had collected around 5cm of water inside (even with the covers on)...... forgot to drop the old elephant trunk down before leaving it.... ooops

Oh well, hope it clears up for the national waterskiing championships here next weekend...

-Alex

Well I accept that RI is significantly better than before in terms of brightness & presentation, but is it really addressing the issues ?

I'm sorry but I'm never going to buy a V-Pro or whatever it is.

I have just bought a 7m Ribtec. My dilemma was the Ribcraft or the Ribtec. I perceived the Ribcraft to be a heavy duty, hard working boat with long life expectancy but the Ribtec to be a better sea keeping hull and a slightly more aethestically pleasing boat. Rightly or wrongly, did RI help me make this decision? No it did not.

I went for the F 225 AETX Yamaha. On this site I have heard people extol the virtues of the new HPDI two strokes and time will tell whether I have made the right decision over my choice of engine. But did RI have any valid input into my decision ? No it did not.

I am therefore back at the stage where I think that it's still great to have a magazine dedicated to the RIB but the reality is that it has no great significance for the everyday/weekend Ribster
