Didn't need the internet then, we all new each other

Actually the first version of Ribnet appeared and then disappeared in 1997. Brought back by JK after all the membership (about a dozen of us) said oi, and so it was Ribnet was recreated.

It's funny I was saying to someone the other day how "back in the day" at what I think was the 2nd ribnet conference we didn't have smart phones and were using the hotel PC to post on ribnet !!

I met a lot of great people through ribnet 2002-4/5 ish some of who I would still call good friends. Despite being off the scene for a few years like all good friends you can pick up where you left off.

"Ballistic" my originally named ballistic is tucked up on a berth in Ramsgate now - here's the hi tec Nav centre that got us 240nm back over the last two days...

And here is my favourite instrument of all time (the bottom one) having used one extensively on magellan and had the optimax facility before that I would want to be without a floscan.

The downside is when we hit 45knts today it was reading off the scale.

Last post for now, here's a couple shorts of the job ed (ribraf) has done on the tubes. We all agreed they look ace & he went the extra mile to help us out by launching in Dartmouth and lending us his shed to overhaul the electronics before we set off.

Pic 1 is the fairlead ed made up at my request - pretty standard setup for a ballistic but great for using an anchor and also means the painter stores neatly when under way.

Pic 2 tube top detial.

Now where did those ballisic decals get to Ed ?
