RIB International Article

Just got the latest RIB Int magazine the other day, and read the article that Shaun White wrote on RIB Skippers - A responsibility.

This i reckon is the best article i have seen in the mag for a long time, he stressed the safety points, the character of the skipper, and much more stating the responsibilty that a skipper has to take on, and moreso the passengers that are present on the boat at the time.

Full marks to Shaun for an honest and 100% good article, in my mind the best for a long time, he needs a good pat on the back.

Cheers

Pete

Yep .. .was a good one.

And as a bonus it's not about a Scorpion which always seem to get strong coverage!! Maybe it's my imagination!

Agreed on all above, just a pity that there was that article that looked as if it had fallen out of the Daily Mail travel section section about some wizard jaunt to a channel island. Nice pictures but seemed a little low on proper boaty info. Very long considering it was holiday.

Editor possibly needs to wield the scissors more, alot of preamble with some articles before they get going properly.

There was also a good article about Windrider Rib Adventures
The guy is a good mate of mine (Major John Winskill) and we have just spent the weekend with him and his family in the Lakes.

Although he is not due to start the business until April 20th he decided to go for it this weekend.
What a success!!!.

The boat is cracking, stable, fast and very well kitted.
Well done to John Price and his team for that.
Its 11m with twin Envinrude 250's to push it along.
And boy do they push it along!!!

We saw Dolphin, Seals and lots of birds this weekend.
The boat was even used to rescue a couple of ill equipped fishermen!!!

Once I get the hang of the software I will post some pics up.

Regards

I skipped through......

.........it last night and apart from the aforementioned atricle on "Skippers" I found that once again it lacked substance. The Channel Island article seemed to go on and on and on zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Having just read a link to a new RIB Magazine based State side, I've just sent them an email asking for overseas rates and advising them to take a look at the Forum, perhaps posting some information and a discounted rate to RIBnet subscribers.... let's see how they repsond.

Nuther fing I noticed; that photo of the RNLI boys, it gets aired each issue (this time night passage making), clearly the RNLI recieve royalties/publication fee or whatever it is called from this which is great!

I'm pretty sure that pic is by Rick Tomlinson so he should get paid for it. Unless the fees are donated to the RNLI I doubt they will see any money! I too was thinking it has been used quite a few times before...wish mine were used that much!

Is it me, or is R.I. thinner every time we see it?

I must say that whilst I think that the Scorpions are fantastic boats, I feel that we are perhaps seeing a little too much coverage of them in R.I., maybe to the exclusion of other boats. They even appear in the advertisements!

I've not participated in RIBnet for a while, as I cancelled my order for a Scorpion 8.5, on account of being told by a doctor that boating was doing me damage!

However, once "boaty", always "boaty", so I shall be looking for a boat for the 2007 season. It might have been sooner, but I went a bit overboard on my purchase of launch vehicle so I need a year or so to make up the difference! I have also decided to get something smaller (perhaps 7.5 mtrs) which would be easier to tow.

Happy RIBbing!

Chris.
