Shouldn't be, not got my copy at the office with me today but I'll check but there weren't any painters on board?

I've checked the photos from the day (We have all of the high res images) and not one photo shows a painter/bow line on board. Sure its not the sikaflex around the Kevlar keel bands that your seeing

RIB Magazine

From what I know, Rib Magazine is still going. However, his other magazines have been bought out by another publisher - it looks like Mr Swan has taken a bit of a tumble...

There is only so much going on in the RIB world that you can write about, hence I guess why it went a bit "bling" and moved into other types of boat. I personally would like to see more "how to" articles and tips for your average boater.

I know the guys at Oyster House, and if it had gone pop which it sounds like it has I feel very sorry for them because they really did put heart and soul into all of their publications and events. Fingers crossed this years show at Gunwharf is a success.

well he has had his share of being put down on here and I do think the mag had gone too far into the fantasy world ( well for most of us it is) of unaffordable boats and exploits, BUT Hugo has kept the only worthwhile magazine aimed at our boating sector going for years and if it did go it would be a loss to us all. The addition of powerboat to the title was really inevitable in order to expand the readership after sportsboat went. So if ya reading this Hugo-sorry for the news but hope you can keep our mag going and rebuild your businesses around it

Hmm .. I thought some of the coastal expeditions were pretty good in the past, sure they reviewed lots of expensive kit, I think that attracts readers, a bit of RIB porn if you like, but they also reviewed plenty standard kit too imho, maybe not the right balance though.

I agree with Tim M ... some more' how to' articles would be good .. but ofcourse they take a lot of research time, and that costs money.

I restore vintage tractors from time to time () And there are several devoted collectors magazine titles that have pretty good readerships,(not just for restorers) where there are endless articles about restorers work, I know RIBs arent seen in that category, but actually they are! .. theres countless threads about people doing them up, maybe the mag tries too much to position its self at new buyers, and new 'converts' to the cause , when it would be better spending time on those who are already converted.

I think also they must have addressed this directional problem at some time, because, they did have articles about seamanship,where to go, all that sort of stuff ... best undiscovered coasts etc etc which I also thought very worthy,

I dunno ... I ramble (and Ive been interrupted ) ...
